Transcript of Prezi

Prezi might be 'too' simple and limited.
The tools are too simple and you can't do everything you thought would be logical to do. For example since we have been using it we have found it frustrating that we can't write a certain word in a different font in the same text box and the fact that you are limited to 3 font per template.
Prezi is very expensive if you want the whole package
There are licenceing issues. You can use the free one which is exrememly limited however if you are a student or educater you get slightly more freedom. To get the full package which includes a desktop area it costs a lot of money.
Affordable?
"Some features may not be affordable to all- persons or organisations." (Perron B, E, 2011) Schools spend their budget in different ways, according to their different priorities.
Prezi is almost completely internet-based.
You have to be connected to the internet to use Prezi. What would happen if the establishment has no internet? What if the Prezi server crashes? What if the internet goes down?
E-Safety
""E-safety comes of paramount importance it woud be irresponsilble to open a whole host of possibilities to children without supporting their understanding of appropriate use.
Zooming
Too much zooming can make people motion sick but "You can spare the motionally challenged by reducing the panning and zooming." (Mike 2011).
Distraction in younger years
The zoomig may distract younger children from learning.

Prezi co-founder, Adam Somlai-Fischer, is an internationally renowned architect and visual artist who has been working with zooming presentations since 2001. Adam found that a zoomable user interface (ZUI) enabled him to explore the “big picture” overview of a floor plan and then zoom into the detail of individual rooms. Because there was no commercially-available zooming presentation editor, each presentation had to be coded by hand. Audiences were wowed and approached Adam to discover what presentation software he used. A few persuaded him to give them access to his code. Finally, in 2007, Budapest University of Technology professor Peter Halacsy convinced Adam to develop an editor so that anyone could make zooming presentations. After creating a prototype, they recruited a business-minded entrepreneur, Peter Arvai, to join as CEO — to help them build a product and a company. Prezi was launched in April 2009 from Budapest, leading to investments from TED Conferences and Sunstone Capital. The San Francisco office was established in November 2009. Prezi (2011) About Prezi.

up-to-date Engaging for chidren Non - Linear More Creative 21st Century Looks
professional Can work on Prezi collectively - created for group use Interesting, new, fun and different Universal Tool Like a mind map
"Giant sheet of paper where you have been scribbling your thoughts" (Lorang, T 2010) This is a positive element for both the staff and the children, as they will both think naturally in a non-linear way so this style of presentation will appeal to the natural abilities of both the maker, consumer and user.
Creative pathway
Backs up the fact that our the thinking process is non linear, Prezi illustrates this well. The pathway also guides peoples thinking but leaves room for them to have their own ideas.
Inserting and embedding Youtube videos in the Prezi
This is a positive of Prezi for both the staff and the children as, "there is no side screen chatter, advertising, or user content to distract them (the children) It completely removes the potential for anything inappropriate or unexpected topop up on the screen". This limits the children being exposed to anything unsuitable as the teacher has control.
Prezi Overview
Can easliy go back to the overview in the middle of the presentation, and then go back to where you left off. "Presenter zooms in and out during the presentation to illusrate the complex relationships that exist at different level of the topic. " (Orlando, J 2010) This is a positive use of Prezi for the teacher, as they are able to easily answer a child's question of a certain area within the presentation. They can go from the present view, to the overview, and click and zoom into the area that the child's query related to, and then back to where they left off. The teacher does not have to scroll through lots of slides which is time consuming, and during the time the teacher may loose the attention of the class.
Allows the user to create a "single canvas of text, images and videos... online". (Orlando, J 2010)
Free & Online Storage
Free online and as it is web based the Prezi is stored online and is saved automatically. A positive of this is that you can save up to 100 MB. This is good in education because a lot of resources and information can be easily stored and accessed for free.
Zooming
The zooming tool allows you to zoom in on the more important parts of the Prezi. "The presenter zooms in and out during the presentation to illustrate the complex relationships that exist at different levels of the topic." (Orlando, J 2010. )This is effective way of ensuring that the children understand key ideas as the zoom allows teachers to highlight specific points. This can enhance their learning as it could build on their existing knowledge, or lay the foundations to be built on.
Engagement
Keeps you interested and engages the audience. This is supported by Teachers First who describe Prezi as "Visually interesting" Prezi-Prezi (Teachers first, no date)
Transitions
Transitions are smooth, mesmerizing and infiniely more interesting than the transitions and animations available in PowerPoint and similar products. (Turkish online journal of distance education. )

teaching and learning! Overall views How teaching & learning relate to them The ability to work in a 'free-form manner', justifies the choice of software in relation to teaching and learning. The curriculum is a broad area and does not tell the teachers how to teach the subjects, so there are lots of possibilities that Prezi can support. Justification of choice
Early Years (EYFS) Justification of Prezi use in the different key stages EYFS Continued... Prezi can be used to tell a story and the "students love to watch the movement of Prezi... the text, pictures are so big it is the ulitmate 'big book'".(Using Prezi in the Elementary Classroom, March 2011) As well as this the zoom tool on Prezi and the ability to enlarge words and pictures so all of the children can clearly see them.
How Prezi can be used in other areas of the Curriculum not mentioned in the Why Prezi Section. For Example This video justifies the use of Prezi to enhance learning because of the different features it has. The video shows the different features of Prezi that would support the teachers and consolidate the childs understanding. For example the inserting of a relevant video into the Prezi. Prezi in the classroom How to use it... Al Gore

"Prezi is impressive!" Being a software which is "intuitive" justifies the choice of Prezi in relation to teaching and learning because it appeals to the child's natural curiosity. Teachers need to be up-to-date with software that enables them to impress and engage their students so effective teaching and learning takes place. Prezi can also be used by the teacher as a simple way to conduct assessments in the Early Years Foundation Stage. The children are constantly assessed through observations. From being in a Early Years setting on work experience we are aware of the importance of observations and how important it is to observe each child in all aspects. Prezi can be "a fun way to review a concept or check for comprehension" This quote can be found online (Using Prezi in the Elementary Classroom, March 2011) as it is simple to create an assessment task on Prezi from the tools and features of the programme. Prezi can be used within the Early Years Foundation Stage to support
a variety of areas within the six areas of learning and development
which are:
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication, language and literacy
Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
Knowledge and understanding of the world
Physical development
Creative Development

Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software
that opens up a new world between
whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas
makes it fun to explore ideas and the
connections between them. The result: visually captivating presentations that lead your
audience down a path of discovery.

How prezi helped a teacher to win a UK national award Resources Andrew Jackson Prezi helped/supported this teacher to win the outstanding teaching resource of the year which is rewarded by the Times Educational Supplement. This is British National Award which celebrated the best teaching in the UK. Mr Jackson believes that Prezi helped him to "create something different and make my work stand out". He also goes on to say that he "immediately noticed its potential within education for creating interactive content". Radnai (2011)

Additionally Mr Jackson claims that Prezi allows him to "produce an interesting and dynamic presentation...[that] allows students to review the work we did" Which is part of a teachers day to day work. Radnai (2011) TES Editorial (2011) Available at: http://www.tes.co.uk/taxonomySearchResults.aspx?keywords=prezi&parametrics=primary (Accessed on 29th November 2011) This article supports the view that Prezi can enhance teaching & learning because... The teacher has used Prezi to create a resource which has won him a well respected award. Psychologists such as Bruner, who produced the spiral curriculum (an extension to Vygotskys Zone of Proximal Development) claim children need to learn a basic piece of knowledge first and continue to build on this. This piece of knowledge along with the claim of the teacher, that Prezi allows the class to "review the work" means that it gives the teachers the chance to impliment this theory which is said to enhance childen's learning and therefore support the teacher. "Interactivity" it is important within education as it supports the teacher in engaging the children resulting in the children learning. 'Teachers First' is a teachers forum which recommends and talks of Prezi very highly. It specifically highlights the positve affects the resource has on teaching. The article claims that Prezi is "an asset to any teacher... [and] is invaluable"
Furthermore the article says that the teacher is able to "introduce a concept with this tool" and they can revisit this introduction as the teacher can go back to this when they wan to "to move onto different parts of the uni". So Prezi is acting as a main hub for the lessons.

Radnai, Z (2011)'How Prezi Helpeda Teacher to win a UK National Award, prezi, 14th July Available at: http://blog.prezi.com/2011/07/14/how-prezi-helped-a-teacher-to-win-a-uk-national-award/ (Accessed 11th November 2011) Giving Children a Voice Resources Prezi is being used more and more within the primary classroom as a 21st century tool to produce presentations - they are now "oral presentations". Prezi is a web based oral presentation tool which supports and enhances children's learning as they can interact with the presention while creating it, which is a cognative theory element.

This specific article backs up that children engage with Prezi and get their brains working. When the young boy called Charlie shares his presentation with the class "the visually stimulating presentation has Charlie's classmates mesmerized".

"Copy. Cut. Paste...previous generation[s]... intructions for a poster board presentation" This article supports the view that Prezi can enhance teaching & learning because... The children are able to create their own presentations and share them with the class - the use of the interactive white board enables this Prezi can be used on existing technologies within the classroom. This means the software is compatible. The children are intrested in Prezi and it is stimulating their minds When the children share the presentation with the class they can assess the children's understanding of the topic and also ICT abilities. The most recent example of children's voices in the classroom is through the use of Prezi, which has "an almost unlimited choice of tools that can be used to not only support children in their learning but give them an opportunity to find their voice" "flex their personalities, shape their identities, think creativily and communicate accross an entire network of friends" Prezis,
that support Prezi enhances teaching & learning This quote supports that Prezi
enhances learning because... As Prezi is a from of new age of web technologies it features enables the children to hav their own voice. The children are able to show their personalities as Prezi is a blank canvas that can incorporate text, images and video. The tools and options Prezi has allowed the children to be creative. For example the different shapes and colours, as well as tools such as the zoom and highlighter. Prezi enables the children to communicate and share ideas across a network of friends, as the children can work collectivly on a Prezi which enables them to share ideas and opinions within a project or piece of work.
"In education, there is adoption from kindergarden all the way through higher education - in teachers and students alike. In general, Prezi is ideal for professionals that depend in inspring communication" (Arvai, 2011) Creators views This quote supports Prezi's positive influence within the education system. When designing the prezi programme, the creators saw the potential for it to be a useful tool in eduction so incorporated various features that would be suitable throughtout. For example the quote specifically refers to inspiring communication. Inspiring in a way that gets both children and teacher engaged and enthusiastic about teaching and learning. Creators quote http://ctl.uregina.wikispaces.net/Prezi (2011) (Accessed 14h November 2011) Our views of Prezi during the project and on completion Both Prezi and Powerpoint has strengths and weaknesses in relation to why it is a good tool in enhancing learning and supporting the teacher. From our research we have been led to believe it is a more professional and personal preference of how children engage and how you as a practitioner prefer to work.


Video Watch Teachers Media Video at the following link... Prezi enhances children's learning because it is fun and interactive. The children enjoyed how they presentation was on one big page allowing them to see the lesson as a whole and the learning journey they would go on through the lesson. Prezi is also good in enhancing children's learning because of the type of interesting things you can do with it. For example the zoom effect is good because you can focus the childrens attention. Also you can import pictures and videos to make the lesson more interactive. Most teachers wanted a resource that is easy to use, quick and versatile. They also wanted something that was clear and visual. In my opinion, Prezi ticks all the of boxes for teachers. This video shows the different views of Prezi and how effective it is in enhancing children's learning. Not everyone enjoys Prezi due to the intense movement. A lot of the teacher interviewed supported this feeling. They believed it could be quite distracting for the children as opposed to enhancing. Some teachers also believed it was too complicated to get used to. They also believed it was purely for presentations and would be better off used in an adult conference situation.

Lesson 1 Objectives:
To discuss what we already know about the Tudors.
To learn when each Monach in Tudor dynasty ruled.
To understand what happened to each of Henry VIII's wives. Discussion Point
What do we already know about the Tudors? The Tudors! Activities What have we learnt this lesson? Have we achieved our learning objectives? EYFS Teachers Input Prezi Idea- English Phonics & Blending C a t Cat KS1 Prezi History Idea Examples of how Prezi can enhance learning and support the teacher in English and Maths. Calculating KS2 When discussing different shapes, the teacher could create a Prezi which includes all of the basic 2D shapes the children need to know. When first learning about shapes the children learn to identify different shapes by the number of sides, corners and lengths.

The teacher can use Prezi to zoom into the corners to help reinforce where the corners are and count them. This can be done for all of the elements to the shape. As well as this the teacher can then zoom out of the shape to show the children what the shape looks like and the shape name while they are learning.

This learning process can then be turned into a game using Prezi. The children have to guess what the shape is, as the Prezi zooms in on and helps them count certain elements before revealing the answer. Shape, Space & Measure The Prezi can support the teacher and enhance the children's learning in relation to calculation through a number of ways. Firstly, if the teacher is introducting a concept to the children they are able to embed a suitable video of explaination or an example in to the Prezi. For example it could be explaining or showing the children ho they can use different objects to add.

Secondly, the Prezi could have the questions and answers to simple calculation processes using both numbers and pictures and physically showing how the two objects can be added together .Through using a Pezi path the teacher can contol when the children move to the answer and get the children to take an active role by clicking the next arrow on the board and the correct answer can be revealed. Linking Sounds & Letters An example of this idea can be found in the Examples section of the Prezi. The Prezi here can be used to help children, begin to blend their phonics letter sounds together to create a word. This is the main foundation of reading. It is very important that at this stage the children say the letter sounds 'C'A'T' and then say the word CAT after. This will help when they come to reading books.This Prezi reinforces the letters and sounds and then the creation of the word. Audio (cc) photo by medhead on Flickr VAK - how Prezi supports this? Visual
The prezi software is very visual orientated and leans itself to visual learners. Some examples of this are the pictures and videos you can embed on the Prezi, also the creative paths you can create to guide the children’s learning. The different sections and frames also help the visual learners because it sections off the specific information. This draws the children’s attention to what you are talking about. Although the Prezi software is good for visual learners it is not as successful for auditory learners. Prezi does not allow you to add audio files on to the software. It only lets you upload video files which is again aimed at the visual learners. However the teacher could add their own audio, by talking alongside the presentation Kinaesthetic There are no elements of Prezi that support Kinaesthetic learners but Prezi does provide a stimulus for explained Kinaesthetic activities. ‍‍
A few ideas on how to use Prezi in teaching and learning:

•Academic and Research Presentations
•Digital Storytelling
•Concept/Mind maps
•Explain concepts
•Online portfolio
•Create storyboard for websites, learning objects etc.

Educational Implications Refer to the EYFS letters & Sounds Section in the Curriculum. This Prezi supports KS2 as in the National Curriculum the area of study for this topic includes Britain and the wider world in Tudor times which is a study of some significant events and individuals, including Tudor monarchs, who shaped this period. History Prezi Our prezi enhances children's learning and supports the teacher as...
It has the lesson objectives which informs the children of what they will be studying and ensures the teacher sticks to the National Curriculum.
A discussion point is part of scaffolding by finding out what they already know and building on it and it also makes children have an active role in learning.
Timeline is engaging as it zooms into the relevant parts, so a lot of information can be put in a small space.
It is clear and easy to go back and look at the overview to answer childrens questions
The embedded video consolidates what has been learnt in a fun and different way. Conclusion KS1 KS1 ICT in the Curriculum & Prezi KS2 Pupils should be taught how to enter and store information in a variety of forms - Prezi can be used to store information as a form in itself. Although Prezi also offers different forms to enter and store information within the programme. For example the options of the Prezi drawing tool. To use text, tables, images and sound to develop their ideas - Prezi supports and features text options, tables (drawn using the tools within Prezi or from the template in the Prezi drawings), images you can insert your own files or images from the internet and sound files but only in a video form. These can all be used or edited in Prezi to develop the pupils ideas. The pupils development can also be highlighted using the Prezi path tool. How to develop and refine ideas by bringing together, organising and re-organising text, tables and sound as appropiate - Prezi can be used to develop and refine ideas. This can be done through simply re-editing existing work, or through creating a path to show clear development. Prezi also features all of the elements needed (sound has to be a video) and has existing templated which can be edited or used as guides when creating tales. Organisation within the Prezi is easy and achieved by one control. The creator of the Prezi can change the size, position and angle of the elements easily. Resource Review what they and others have done to help them develop their ideas - Prezi allows the user or users to look at what they or someone else has done and alter their own Prezi collectively. Additionally by setting a path on Prei your views can view your work the way you want or need them too. This is another way to show clear development. Prezi has a big impact on learning because it engages the children actively in the lesson. From my own experience it focuses you more on the task that the teacher is talking about. In our recent ICT lessons we made a Prezi to convey the poem ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright. This is a good resource for tasks like this, because the pathway tool allows you to follow the flow of the poem. Also the zooming tool allowed us to emphasise the key stages of the poem. 'My Magic Box'
"a Prezi presentation has the potential to help students understand the context or system in which something has meaning" Impact on learning In my personal opinion I think that Prezi is a really interesting tool and from the evidence given in our Prezi it has a lot of pros against PowerPoint but on the other hand I feel it is just as limited as PowerPoint. The zooming tool is a great new process, but it gets boring, repetitive and the presentations can even become almost predictable. Having saying that it’s a great way for the children to learn because you are able to guide their thoughts and reflect back on the whole lesson. Rachael Learning Theories Vygotsky The child as an active learner... Jerome Bruner Spiral Curriculum Scaffolding Prezi can be used in Key Stage 2 across the whole curriculum. It can also be used differently depending on attainment levels and year groups. This shows that Prezi is a flexible piece of software, which can be adapted depending on the situation. For Example Prezi can be used to support Mathematics. The curriculum states that children must "recognise approximate proportions of a whole and use simple fractions and percentages to describe them, explaining their methods and reasoning". Qualifications and curriculum development agency. (no date)

Using this software, the main part of the Prezi would be a pie chart. The zooming tool would allow you to zoom into the relevant section to describe it in terms of percentages, fractions, and decimals. This would allow children to clearly see the relationship between fractions, percentages and decimals. It is argued that there are negative points about Prezi that impact teaching. It takes longer to create than PowerPoint and designing it is conceptually more challenging because you have to look more into the relationships between aspects. Overall, it could depend on the circumstances of the teacher whether they have the time to spend creating Prezi, or would it be more worthwhile to use a quick software that still gets the point across. The main positive about Prezi from this information is “a Prezi presentation conveys not just content (like a PowerPoint slide) but relationships among different content elements.” Centre forTeaching Excellence (No date) This is good for teaching it allows the children to see the ‘big picture’ and the zooming tool allows children to see more information about how the topics could be link cementing their understanding. Centre for Teaching Excellence Centre for Teachng Exellance (no date) Prezi. Available at: http://cte.uwaterloo.ca/teaching_with_technology/netsavvy/prezi.html (Accessed 15th November 2011). Prezi helps educators think more freely about how to convey information effectively and how to use multimedia to engage with students. As time is going by technology is advancing rapidly with multimedia being the way forward. Prezi in the Classroom Chris (2011) 'Prezi in the Classroom'. Prezi Training, 20th AprilAvailabe at: http://www.prezitraining.co.uk/2011/04/20/prezi-in-the-classroom/(Accessed: 17th November 2011 Giardina , J,T, (2010) What is prezi? Educational Users? Available at: http://prezi.com/dq5dw-vhfmoz/what-is-prezi-educational-uses/ (Accessed: 6th November) Middle school focuses on problem solving, collaboration Like a concept map, a Prezi presentation has the potential to help students understand the context or system in which something has meaning. Unlike a static concept map, however, Prezi allows a presenter or user to pan around and then zoom in on specific parts of the system in question. Centre for Teaching Excellence It allows learners to be creative with their learning so they can use it in a way that best suits them rather than a statutory approach. This gives the children more freedom and control over their learning This shows prezi enhances learning because... Prezi gives children the opportunity to ... This quote is saying to us that Prezi has a positive impact on learning because it allows you as a teacher, to help guide the children's thinking and understanding, especially with the pathway tool. National Curriculum, En 3 Writing, Knowledge, skills and understanding, Planning and Drafting, 2a, Available at: http://curriculum.qcda.gov.uk/key-stages-1-and-2/subjects/english/keystage2/index.aspx (Accessed: 21st November 2011) Planning and drafting Prezi is a good tool to use in the Planning and drafting stage of English Writing. From the national curriculum it states that “Children should be taught to plan - note and develop initial ideas.”

Prezi can incorporate this idea effectively. For example it could be used as a mind map to plan a story. The different paragraphs would occupy a different frame and the zooming tool would allow each point to be explored more deeply. The paths could also emphasise how the points are linked together. As prezi is automatically saved the child would then be able to come back to it at a later date. Britain and the wider world in Tudor times According to the national curriculum key stage 2 students need to “study some significant events and individuals, including Tudor monarchs, who shaped this period”

The prezi we have designed below is an example of a lesson which could be taught in accordance with this. It has the learning objectives which can be referred to throughout the lesson, and discussion points to find out what the children already to know to build on existing knowledge. The main part of the prezi consists of a time line, which gives an overview of the monarchs of the Tudor period. The zooming tool zooms into each monarch showing specific details which keeps the children engaged. We have also incorporated a video which could cement the children’s understanding. In the plenary we could zoom back to the learning objectives to see what the children have gained. This lesson structure supports the three part lesson.

An example of a prezi to use in this context could be for the main part of the prezi to be a map. This could be either local or international as own photographs from fieldwork or images uploaded from the internet could be used. The zooming tool could also be used to focus on specific areas to study in more depth. Video This video shows Prezi being used in the classroom and how Prezi enhances the childrens learning. "Middle school students are learning skills that educators hope will better prepare the for life after school" Prezi is a software that students have used which the teachers believed supported the children in completing the tasks preparing them for life after school. They believe Prezi 'offers plenty of creative control to the users' and they are able to work in groups and create their own communities. Allowing the children to work in groups and in affect be a small community, will enhance their learning as they can consult and discuss. This can help to consolidate their learning. As well as helping the children to learn from one another and developing their communication skills. Jennifer Heidi In my personal opinion I think that what Prezi allows and provides is essentail and an asset to the Educational system. I feel that it can support the teachers in delivering and supporting the childrens learning. This is because of the different tools such as the zooming and drawings, which make the Prezi interesting and engaging. I also believe that Prezi is child friendly as the videos can be ocntrolled and also the children questions can be answered throughout the lesson as the teacher can zoom back out to the over view. I do believe that there are negatives to Prezi, such as not being able to add a sound file, but overall i feel the positives out weigh the negatives. Prezi inc (2011) About Prezi.

Scaffolding is the term given to the provision of appropriate assistance to students in order that they may achieve what alone would have been too difficult for them. Visual scaffolding is support that includes images and words that can be seen as well as heard. Prezi can be used to support KS1 in many different ways but it is useful to engage the younger children. Atagana, M . (2011) Memeburn. Available at: http://memeburn.com/2011/10/qa-with-prezi-ceo-on-non-linear-presentations/comment-page-1/ (Accessed: 26th October 2011) For Example Prezi can be used to support RE within the classroom. In my personal I think that prezi is an exciting and up to date tool which can engage pupils of any age across the curriculum through the use of the zooming tool. My view on prezi has changed throughout the project. At the start I felt quite confused about how to use the different tools but as time went on and with practise i gradually felt more comfortable with it andi now believe that Prezi is a piece of software that allows you create presentations easily. However i still feel that there are some negatives that could be addressed to make prezi better still. For example there is no spell check or not being able to change the size or font on a single word in a text box England. Department of Education (1999) The National Curriculum.

Prezi can help the children learn in an active style and interact with the lesson because of the learning paths and zooming tools which help engage the child with what you are trying to teach. This is backed up in the impact on teaching and learning section. Prezi is a good tool for KS1 because the learning paths and zooming tools help focus the childs learning. 'A curriculum as it develops should revisit this basic ideas repeatedly, building upon them until the student has grasped the full formal apparatus that goes with them'

The Spiral Curriulum that Bruner talks about is saying that in order for the child to be a successful learner, the teacher must allow the class to come back and revisit the topics, and build on existing knowledge. After doing this the child should have grasped the basic understanding, however if they have not then they can always come back and revisit it again. Something New Prezi is a new tool which can be used in the classroom by all teachers. It can stimulate the children's learning and it can help to engage them ully in the lesson. It also has a big impact on teaching because the teacher could use it to make their lesson plans on. If they were to make a lesson plan on Prezi, you could use the zooming tools and pathways to focus in on the main learning objectives. This means that for future reference you have a electronic copy of the lesson which shows the intentions of what you are trying to teach. Using the software, the story can be out on the Prezi and use the zooming tool to focus in on the important messages of the story, which can lead to a discussion. Also, in regards to the telling of stories the Prezi can show a story map to prompt the children when they are being story tellers. "telling stories, real and imagined" Prezi can be used in the KS1 English Prezi can also be used in KS1 Maths Prezi can be used in
KS1 Science In KS1 Science the children should have a basic understanding of life cycles, so therefore Prezi can used to explain a life cycle. There many shapes made by Prezi that the teacher could use. Then they could use the zooming and pathway tools to focus the children in on the specific questions you are asking. Prezi can support Keys Stage 1 Maths because you can use it support counting to 10. You could make a number line and use the zooming tool to zoom in on the numbers to help them count. This also helps inforce the one to one principle, because the zooming in on the number allows you to attach the counting words to it. You can use a Prezi within an RE lesson to highlight the stories within the religions, for example you could create a story map using Prezi of the Easter story or Christmas story.

You could also use it to time line in a year the religious festivals which are celebrated in one religion. This video is a good source because we can see the different perspectives from different age group teachers. From what we can see in the video, the children in the older classes enjoy it more. This is because they are older and enjoy the presentation more, as opposed to younger children who tend to get distracted from the large amount of movement.

Using Prezi has been a good experience and as a group we have grown in our professional development, this is due to not being able to use the programme before we started the project. After the completion of this project we now feel very confident at using Prezi. Although it has been a good experience, we have had some difficulties along the way for example, the lack of hard copy resources. A lot of the resources we have used have been internet based articles, because Prezi is so new. There are very few books on Prezi and the only ones we could find only had 1 page of writing about it. The articles we have found are from reliable sites, but this has made our research much more in depth because we have had to sift through many articles that are deemed unreliable. Another problem we have faced is the fact that we are all in different a groups. We knew it would be difficult but the extra work and reading done outside of the meetings we have had has made a massive difference. We have been able to really get to grips with the programme and what other professionals think of it as well as our own conclusions. Professional
