Website of the Week: Prezi – Creating Presentations on the Web is an amazing web-based slide show creation tool that doesn’t limit you to actual slides. The site allows you to add text, images and video and integrate them together in interesting ways (e.g. the dot for the letter “i” in insect turns out to be, when zoomed in, to be a ladybug).

Click on the Learn tab to access the “Prezi Academy” where you can access YouTube videos and Prezi presentations that take you step-by-step through the creation process and explains the tools that are at your disposal.

Click on the Explore tab to access popular Prezis that authors have shared openly for public viewing.

A basic level account is free with 100 MB of storage space; additional storage space and services require a monthly fee. NOTE: active students and teachers can have access to additional services at no cost!
