Zooming feature is what makes Prezi different from many other presentation tools. But do you know how to use it properly? Here's a post that is going to help you.

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it
This is a method of constructing effective PowerPoint presentations in a way that helps your audience pay attention to you and understand your ideas more fully. With Attention Method, the slides are designed to add power, emphasis, and deeper understanding to your well-scripted speech. You flip slides often so that, at any given time, your slides always support only what you're saying and contain no distracting information. Instead of one slide with several bullets, each slide should contain one idea expressed in vibrant images and minimalistic text.
Baiba Svenca's insight:

Ted Curran describes an interesting approach to creating a PowerPoint presentation where the slides complement the speech and are in sync with the speaker's pace.

The article describes the pitfalls of presentations and suggests what should be done to avoid them. Some slide design and color tools are mentioned as well.
