Tracy18's curator insight, April 15, 2013 12:50 AM

Im only new to Prezi but its clear to see that it would be a valuable creative tool to demonstrate both an understanding of a given topic and an avenue to develop a piece of work which is both personal and professional, a way to see the person behind the work which was difficult to see in the days of powerpoint presentations.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 3, 2015 12:58 PM

Although I just started using it last semester, I love Prezi! How many presentations turn into a boring list of bullet points and leave the audience daydreaming? The nonlinear format and movement of Prezi helps the audience stay attentive and know where to focus their attention (instead of wondering which bullet is most important).

The New World of Creative Services

The New World of Creative Services | Creative Digital Literacies: Infographics and Prezi | Scoop.it

With the rise of “publisher as agency,” publishers need to find people to help brands create content. This is what they look for.

Rebekah Donaldson's insight:

Interesting that they are specifically looking for creative individuals with digital backgrounds rather than marketers with tons of experience. This adds to the changing world because of digital literacy and shows the need for digital skills for our students for the future.
