Having talked a lot recently about the strengths and weaknesses of Prezi, I thought it was about time I ‘showed and told’. So here’s a Prezi presentation of mine, to give you an overview of how you can use the tool to best advantage. You can click through it like a book, or set it to autoplay. Now here are a few caveats –
- This is a Prezi designed to be read – if you used it as a presentation aid it would be supervised reading, which would be worse than death by PowerPoint.
- Use it like an online training aid and take your time to read through it. It shows Prezis strengths and weaknesses in equal measure.
- To turn this into a visual aid, I’d simply remove the clutter (unnecessary detail, the sentences, the extra words and use the visual for emphasis of my text only).
- I’d end up with a very simple set of emphatic words and images that I could use like a flipchart to illustrate my key points.
