MATC-Teaching with Technology Today: March 2012 7 Best Practices for Making Great Prezi Presentations By Megan Hamilton Prezi is a flexible Web-based program that instructors and students can use to create dynamic presentations. Think of Prezi as a giant virtual whiteboard, where you can post images, videos, and text to explore the connections between ideas. Most people are familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint, which is a traditional tool for creating linear, text-heavy lecture materials. Unlike PowerPoint, Prezi is great for making highly visual and engaging non-linear presentations. Before you get started, review our 7 practice guidelines to help you make the most of this tool. Tip #1: Consider Your Content Great Prezi presentations are a judicious blend of text, images, diagrams, and video. Tip #2: Create a rough "Blueprint" Before Building Your Prezi To make building your presentation in Prezi's limitless canvas easier, sketch a basic outline of the presentation’s structure and proposed arrangement of components on the canvas.
Tutoriel Prezi en français by THIERRY ROY on Prezi Binary, Decimal and Hexadecimal Numbers Decimals To understand Binary and Hexadecimal numbers, it is best to know how Decimal Numbers work. Every digit in a decimal number has a "position", and the decimal point helps us to know which position is which. The position just to the left of the point is the "Units" position. Now, this is just a way of writing down a value. The Decimal Number System is also called "Base 10". And there are 10 symbols (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9), but notice something interesting: there is no symbol for "ten". "10" is actually two symbols put together, a "1" and a "0": In decimal you count "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,..." but then you run out of symbols! So you add 1 on the left and then start again at 0: 10,11,12, ... Counting with Different Number Systems But you don't have to use 10 as a "Base". Example: In binary you count "0,1,..." but then you run out of symbols! So you add 1 on the left and then start again at 0: 10,11 ... See how you would count dots using Bases from 2 to 16 in this little demonstration:
The ultimate guide to Prezi, updated and refreshed! A lot has happened since I wrote this post, complete with a Prezi guide created in Prezi itself, in July 2011. I’ve been the Technical Reviewer for a successful book on Prezi, I’ve been twice approached by publishers to write books about Prezi (including the 2nd edition of the one I was reviewer for!), I’ve used it for loads more training and presentations, and the Prezi guides I’ve written across various formats have been viewed almost a quarter of a million times. (Clearly I’m wasting my time with all this library stuff. ) There’s also a deluge of comments on the Prezi, many asking when I’m going to update it – because the other thing that has changed, quite substantially, is Prezi itself. So here is the ultimate guide to Prezi, updated and refreshed for 2013, with new screenshots, new instructions, additional examples, and an edited FAQ. The other change that’s happened in this time is that Prezi has gone from a little niche presentation tool to something you see a LOT.
Getting Started with Prezi Tuto court Prezi PREZI c’est quoi ? Eh bien Prezi est un outil en ligne, qui permet de créer une présentation dynamique, et soit-dit-en passant, d’épater tous vos contacts ! Mais qu’est-ce qu’il a de mieux que powerpoint ? Eh bien au lieu de couper les visuels en petits morceaux limités par la taille d’une diapositive on peut s’exprimer en utilisant une surface "infinie" sur laquelle on passe d’une partie à une autre avec un mécanisme de translation, de rotation et de zoom. Alors si vous aussi vous voulez apprendre à faire de jolies présentations animées, voici un petit guide ! Bon alors d’abord, on s’inscrit sur Prezi, c’est très simple, on peut même se loguer avec facebook. Ensuite, c’est parti pour la création d’un nouveau Prezi, on choisi le fond que l’on souhaite, enfin le "Templates" pour être précis. Une fois le templates choisi, on peut ajouter du texte dans tous les espaces déjà présents (entre crochets, et dans les bulles). On double clique dessus et hop, c’est magique, on peut taper son texte !

It is great for classes, students and teachers in science, math, digital electronics, computers, programming, logic and networking. Everything you need to do in order to start a library blog, in the order you need to do it in by Ned Potter on Prezi Improving the Accessibility of PREZI | Creating accessible materials Improving the Accessibility of PREZI At the moment PREZI is often inaccessible to disabled people. The company have promised to address this in the future and hopefully things will improve, but in the meantime we would recommend that PREZI is not used. If you have to use PREZI the following are some guidelines to assist you in making it as accessible as possible. Always ensure you have a full version of the presentation in an alternative format that can be emailed out in advance as well as paper copies of the individual slides. General Guidance (also applies to PowerPoints) A summary of an external accessibility testing of Prezi can be found at: External testing of accessibility of PREZI Request an alternative format To request this document in an alternative format, such as large print or on coloured paper, please contact Viki Galt, the Disability Information Officer.
Prezi - Advantages and Disadvantages Prezi is a great presentation tool for spicing up the mundane PowerPoint that you’ve been using for the past 10 years. It allows for new kinds of visualizations and opportunities to link imagery to motion, which in turn creates a deeper understanding and retention duration. With any technology, there are advantages and disadvantages that exist. Advantages: 1. Prezi is not your typical slide-based presentation tool. 2. Prezi is completely free. ITT Tip: Always consider what technology resources kids have at home. 3. One of my favorite aspects of Prezi (assuming it is used correctly) is the ability to have movement actually become part of the presentation. 4. The web-based software is designed with all ages in mind. 5. It sounds so simple (and somewhat deflating) but your students really do pay attention to the teaching tools you use. Disadvantages 1. Yes, you read it correctly. 2. 3. Overall, Prezi is a great tool that many would find very useful in the classroom. Tags: Prezi

Convert Prezi To YouTube Videos Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to Prezi.com is easy enough, however when it comes to converting it to a YouTube video, there seems to be no native method of doing so. While you can convert PowerPoint to video formats using a native PowerPoint feature, the same cannot be said for the Prezi application. However, you can convert Prezi to YouTube by using a workaround. Capture Prezi With A Screen Recording Tool As Prezis are zooming presentations, you can neatly capture your presentation using a screen capture tool. Convert Prezi To Video Format Once your Prezi presentation has been recorded, you can use the native option within your screen recording tool to convert the captured screencast to a desired video format. Upload Recorded Prezi Presentation To YouTube Once the Prezi has been converted to video format, you can upload it to YouTube.

Writing Topic Sentences A paragraph is unified when every sentence develops the point made in the topic sentence. It must have a single focus and it must contain no irrelevant facts. Every sentence must contribute to the paragraph by explaining, exemplifying, or expanding the topic sentence. In order to determine whether a paragraph is well developed or not, ask yourself: "What main point am I trying to convey here?" (topic sentence) and then "Does every sentence clearly relate to this idea?" There are several ways in which you can build good, clear paragraphs. Paragraph Development by Detail This is the most common and easiest form of paragraph development: you simply expand on a general topic sentence using specific examples or illustrations. Work tends to be associated with non-work-specific environments, activities, and schedules. The topic sentence makes a general claim: that school work tends not to be associated only with school.
