What is Prezi?

Story Wheel Spin the wheel and land on an image. Now it's your turn to make up part of a story with that image. You'll have 30 seconds to record your voice as you add to the story. As you progress, the previous images are displayed on the side so you can keep track of the storyline. Your voice is played back with the images you spun. Each page of the story lists the speaker and shows the animated image that was spun.

Prezi Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Prezi est un logiciel de présentation édité par la société hongroise éponyme, créé et lancé à Budapest en 2009. La société, qui emploie 200 salariés basés à Budapest, San Francisco et en Corée[1], revendique, depuis 2009, 50 millions d'utilisateurs à travers le monde. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] L'outil est créé par Ádám Somlai-Fischer en 2009, avec la collaboration du professeur Péter Halácsy (Université polytechnique et économique de Budapest) et de l'entrepreneur Péter Árvai. En 2010, la startup est "saluée" par les organisateurs de Conférence TED et lève 14 millions de dollars en 2011 auprès d'Accel Partners, un fonds d'investissement américain. La même année, Prezi est repérée par Barack Obama qui intègre la startup au projet ConnectED au côté d'Apple, Microsoft et AT&T. Le 2 avril 2014 Prezi lance une version française[3].

GoAnimate Photo Story The final free download version (3.0) includes the ability to randomly generate background music which is composed on the fly from a combination of themes and also includes basic photo editing and touchup features.[2] The last version of Photo Story (3.1) was included with the discontinued Microsoft Digital Image 2006. It restored the ability to burn a Video CD using the Sonic Burning engine. To burn CDs or DVDs from files generated by version 3.0, users may purchase Sonic MyDVD DVD burning software or the Sonic DVD for Photo Story 3 for Windows [3] plug in (which burns one DVD per Story). History[edit] Photo Story originally was based on a Microsoft Research project in photo sharing.[4] The chief finding of that research was that people narrated better stories when they moved their hands, made gestures and pointed at their images. Photo Story was not included with Windows XP, though it was and continues to be made available as a free download to authenticated users. Limitations[edit]

Prezi Is The Coolest Online Presentation Tool I've Ever Seen At last week’s The Next Web Conference, I was part of the 4-headed jury that evaluated all presenting startups and ultimately decided My Name Is E should be awarded the top prize. It was an extremely close call, since we ended up having to decide between the young Dutch company and a startup that built a simply amazing web application you’re really going to want to check out. The tool I’m referring to is called Prezi, and it allows you to create amazing presentations on the web. If you think you’ve heard that too many times, don’t stop reading just yet, because this one is just plain awesome. It’s really no use explaining how presentations come out without seeing it for yourself, so it pains me that there’s currently no way to embed the examples that are showcased on the Prezi website. It takes a while to get used to the way Prezi lets you create presentations, although the interface is fairly intuitive once you’ve grown accustomed to using the ‘Zebra’.

Digital Storytelling - Handout Why I hate Prezi One of the many jokes about Powerpoint is how much time people who use it spend picking transitions between slides. They spend more time picking out animations, and which wipe effects to use, than they do thinking about what goes on the slides themselves. Or what their audience needs to learn and how best to convey those lessons. It’s like wanting to make a movie and spending all your time picking fonts for the credit reel at the end. It’s backwards and broken. Because of how Powerpoint, and Keynote, are constructed, other common habits for creating presentations are equally flawed. Popular presentation tools focus on slides, which should not be the focus at all. In Chapter 5 of Confessions of a Public Speaker, I explain the best way to prepare for a presentation. I first saw a demo of Prezi years ago, and it seemed interesting. I’ve experimented with many different ways to present. If anyone has seen a great talk done with Prezi, please leave a comment.

The 5 Levels of Digital Storytelling By kylemawer It’s our pleasure to introduce a guest blog post by James Taylor, who has been adapting gaming elements (such as leveling up) and applying them to digital storytelling. Thanks, James for a very interesting blog post and loads of great web links and resources which you’ll find near the end – Some of them we’re familiar with here at Digital play but we can’t wait to dip into all the others. Over to you James . . . When we think of introducing web-based tools into our classrooms, as teachers we often obsess over the technical side of things. We worry about setting everything up, about dealing with passwords, about computers crashing and our students not doing what they are supposed to do. We are not wrong to consider these things, whether we teach kids or adults. Level One – Mad Libs Mad Libs is a very basic parlour game popular in North America. Level One web-links
