Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

Dave Wood's curator insight, April 18, 2014 3:41 PM

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.

Tweegram and Textgram (for iOS and Android) will help you transform your text into an image. Both apps are free to download.

A great way to vary image design for your presentations.

SCROLLSHOW for students and educators

SCROLLSHOW for students and educators | educational lessons | Scoop.it

Educators today are looking for new and innovative ways to engage their students, their colleagues, and themselves. Our society roles and how we communicate with one another has changed. Standards and expectations have changed. Presentation is everything and I feel Scrollshow has hit their mark and raised up to set a new bar!
An educator not only has to express ideas and communicate a clear message to their audience, but also help students build the same skills and abilities to prepare them for a bright and successful future. Students are asked to share and prove their new learning through a range of ways. Communication really is key to engaging an audience.

Using Pinterest and Instagram as a Presentation Tool | educational lessons | Scoop.it

Students are currently studying World War II in my classroom.  One of the elements we look at is how the World War II Generation, the Greatest Generation, was able to endure and succeed in this era.  Students look at one particular character from Tom Brokaw’s book, The Greatest Generation.  They are required to tell their character’s story from the war era using a tech tool in their presentation.

A few students have begun thinking outside of the box in regards to presentation tools. Students have been using Instagram and Pinterest as their tech tool...

Mind Mapping and the Common Core

Mind Mapping and the Common Core | educational lessons | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structure information, helping you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall, and generate new ideas. 
In a mind map, information is structured in a way that resembles much more closely how your brain actually works. Since it is an activity that is both analytical and artistic, it engages your brain in a much, much richer way, helping in all its cognitive functions. It is easy and FUN!
