teachers in the tele

The following day, we invite you to come learn the basics of Prezi in the tele and leave with your own fabulous online presentation! This class takes place June 14th from 8:30 a.m. to 12.  Learn how to utilize this application for classroom use in Using Prezi to Create Zooming Presentations. Prezi is a web-based presentation application & storytelling tool that uses a single canvas instead of traditional slides. Text, images, videos and other objects are placed on the infinite canvas and grouped together in frames. The canvas allows users to create non-linear presentations, where users can zoom in and out of a visual map. A path through different objects and frames can be defined, representing the order of the information to be presented. Prezi can be developed in a browser window, and then downloaded so that an Internet connection is not needed when sharing it. (It costs $74 for a CSD member and $94 for a non-member).
