Meaningful Memorable experience Trigger an action! Structure Horizon best to tell a story that has meaning Simple feels fast and easy to create
reassuring and inspiring VS intimidating In prezi you write in space write a walk Prezi Slide takeaways: keep it simple create structured text & overview explore the space! let a metaphor inspire you For example, presenting to an audience of 100 people for 45 minutes
= 1 week of human attention spent viewing your presentation. Things you understood?
Or space, smells, touch?

"The method of loci is also commonly referred to as the journey method. In basic terms, it is a method of memory enhancement which uses visualization to organize and recall information. Many memory contest champions claim to use this technique in order to recall faces, digits, and lists of words. These champions’ successes have little to do with brain structure or intelligence, but more to do with their technique of using regions of their brain that have to do with spatial learning." Spatial organisations can help people remember: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Method_of_loci The eyes focus mostly on the title, then the first bullet point. From there the focus diminishes as the viewer reads their way through the bullet point list. Prezi brings the content to the center by zooming, it also removes other content on our canvas from view. As a result the viewer’s eyes are drawn to the center of the screen at each viewpoint, and are focused on one section of content at a time. The following tests were conducted using heat spots to indicate where the users' eyes focused when viewing a screen. The red color indicates more focus and time spent viewing a particular area; green areas show less focus. But why create scenes?
Does my data really need sceneography? If you like to focus on details, yes. Convey perspective as you move to/from detail Foreground Middleground Background You should have a That conveys the overarching point of your presentation to an overview through
path steps at all levels, as you zoom from small details Path travel in context no jumps, no spins use frames to zoom in and out is the journey Here, there's no sense of space Here, we explore the space semantically http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presencia_de_América_Latina Do the 'squint test' on your the of your prezi Think like a photographer / filmaker when you move How to write in prezi Bullet Lists The 'Zen' approach Prezi Background metaphor: Reach towards the stars! Reading direction Use arrows to indicate flow Move around Scale around Always create an overview that helps people to understand Option Foundation Progress Future Option Main topic details details Income Expense Chaos Boxes Spatial narrative blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah Order Order Order TITLE Order Order Order If your prezi looks like this, it's too rigid, and easy to lose context as you move around Order What? You need both Structure Flow Like a floor plan...
It makes sense from the overview Narrative Storytelling You want to be here Thread Classic classic

But not everything can be organized spatially ?!? Traditional, but hard to visualize the relationships between each team member Simple and stylish, but it doesn't
give us the detail we need to truly understand Working spatially, you can compress the information into a meaningful overview structure.
You can zoom to see the relationships in more detail if needed. Clusters of content to reinforce meaning. Squint and view your overview from a distance - does it still make sense? This overview has been blurred,
but can you still guess the overall theme? Create structures that show relationships and context: If not, how do you expect your audience to understand? Concluding with an overview (or final reveal) can be a great way to bring the context of your story together. Overview "Okay, but how does this work for my presentation?" Exposition Rising action Climax Falling action Resolution You've likely all seen a simple linear narrative... A spatial narrative has a more visual structure
which helps you to follow the story. Just like it helps the viewer follow a long movie, it can help the viewer follow long or complex presentations. Example: Lando Calrissian Darth Vadar Ewoks Han Solo The Intergalactic Empire MISSION:
CONTINUE BEING EVIL Imperial ground forces Emperor Palpatine Calamari Cruiser Mission:
Blow up Death Star (again)
Save Galaxy (again) The Rebel Alliance Admiral Ackbar Characters : :Characters Millenium Falcon Ships: Luke Skywalker Ships: Tie Fighters AT-ST Walkers Super Star Destroyer Death Star X-Wing You wouldn't stand inches away and run your nose along this mural to view it Example: The overview structure implies the tension
between the two sides
- it can be conveyed even at a distance where we can't see the details emotion in your prezi it's Linear, hierarchical list Our small team of software developers
