experiment
With Prezi, you start with a
big blank canvas
...
Practically infinite!
And that can be daunting
So as you start exploring this new territory...
You'll soon find your (Prezi) way

When people are asked what to do about crime, their answer is affected by the language used: those who are told crime is a
BEAST
favor tougher police and incarceration practices; those who are told crime is a
VIRUS
favor social reform measures.

from Prof. Lera Boroditsky's research
(Stanford Psychology Dept.)

In all areas of our lives, the
metaphors
we hear and use affect what we do (most of the times, unconsciously).
And this is true of teaching and giving talks...
Even when using a
breakthrough innovation
such as...
...because our mind is clinging to
an old metaphor: SLIDES
we still use it as we would...
(yes, like I'm doing right now)
what if
you thought about...
Time's up!
look up images using the metaphor you came up with as a keyword
now you can use that image as a 'big picture' frame for your Prezi :)
To exploit Prezi's potential and build great presentations, we need to think about our perception of
SPACE
Connect the above 9 dots with a maximum of 4 straight lines, without lifting the pen from the paper.
(you can draw the dots on paper, or just try it on the screen using your finger as imaginary pen)
Solve this problem:
You may have come up with this solution... and in fact this problem is where the phrase "thinking outside the box" came from
However, my point is that this is not THE solution, but
one of many
... Yet we often stop once we find the first right answer to a given problem.
We fail to see the
OTHER dimensions
(boxes) we need to break free from...

We need to zoom in and out
in our minds
, before we do it on the canvas
(to jumpstart setting up YOUR stage)
think of an upcoming presentation, and write down the MAIN thing you want your audience to know, feel or -better yet-
do
after you are done.
Step 2
brainstorm
metaphors
for that main idea
(note: this Prezi was adapted from the one used at a live talk at a meetup at Prezi's office on April 19, 2012 - the original one had way less text... and me engaging with the audience :)
and we are stuck in a
