Prezi Guide: The 5 Essentials To Stop Your Audience Feeling Sick

Prezi Guide: The 5 Essentials To Stop Your Audience Feeling Sick | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Prezi is nothing if not divisive. Some people love it, some people hate it - I'm in neither of those camps. I find it very useful in some situations, but still use good old fashioned PowerPoint Slides for more than half the presentations I give. Prezi should be used for a reason.

Prezi is relatively new (it's been around since 2009), it's getting more
popular (there are around 40 million users now) and it's improving its
interface all the time. Some people accuse it of being style

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.
