10 Tips to Help Master Prezi Last week, I spent two days teaching Prezi at the Langley Center for New Media. As the event came to a close, a few attendees asked if I could sum up more than 16 hours of teaching in a top 10 list. Well, here’s my first stab at 10 tips that should help you become a better Prezi presenter and publisher. 1. Work in 1024 × 768 Import assets (like screenshots) at the resolution you plan to present at, otherwise your imported assets will look awful. 2. While we’re talking about the correct presentation resolution, it’s important to remember that Prezi is designed to help you easily present at 1024 × 768. 3. Working efficiently in Prezi, like many software suites, completely hinges on using the keyboard shortcuts. 4. When I set out to create a presentation, I think in 10-minute frames. 5. While I’m constructing my presentation (constantly adding elements and trying to work through the story and element organization), I work across a widely separated landscape. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 100 more hints

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices. The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same. What attracts my attention more than anything else in this program are the two lists of core apps curated for both teachers and students. As soon as I saw the titles included in these lists I knew from my own experience in reviewing educational apps that these could be a very good start for anyone of you out there trying to incorporate iPad in your teaching.

Prezi structure is essential …or “Why most Prezi users should be SHOT”) Prezi is a great tool full of functions, but if you don’t follow good structure guidelines it can all go terribly wrong…. I admit it sounds harsh to say people should be shot, but actually it’s an acronym for what should be done to most Prezi users: They should be Stopped, Helped or Trained. Why? As people start adopting Prezi, many of them forget 2 of the 4 pillars of an effective presentation: Message and structure. What do most people do with Prezi? In this post, I’ll explain how to apply the fundamental presentation concept of message + structure to a Prezi presentation. (And if you are intrigued about how I phrased that last paragraph, read here why it is important to answer the only 3 questions that count!) First, here is an example of what I want you to do… Got it? Prezi is a 3D canvas (surprise!) There are 2 major options for how to present your main message and supporting conclusions.

How To Convert Prezi To YouTube Videos Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to 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.
