Transcript of Intro to Prezi

Use the templates as a metaphor Obstacle 1 Obstacle 2 Obstacle 3 Goal Start Layers: The Twists and Turns Create something that connects with the students and let the students create something with depth and understanding. Journey Into Prezi More than pretty
More than zooming Trigger an Action Tell a Story that Entertains How to Write in Prezi A prezi is an adventure and should move like one. So put frames inside of frames to build and add to the content.

Twist a frame or turn it in another direction to give it some texture...but don't make them sick.

Think of it like a movie. Have fun! Writing in Prezi Don't Go Overboard What do you remember more... Lists? Sights? Sounds? Experiences? Horizon Convey perspective as you move to/from detail Side 1 Side 2 Tension? Writing in Space Create a Journey Method of Loci "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." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Method_of_loci Keep the Focus 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. Basic Slide Prezi 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. Spatial Organization K.I.S.S. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah if your prezi looks like this, please work a little more, scale up main points, place subtopics into larger frames, etc... Chaos Boxes Title Order Order Order Order Order Order Order if your prezi looks like this, it's too rigid, and easy to lose context as you move around Narrative structure flow Like a floor plan...
It makes sense from the overview Reading Directions Classic linear
list arrows indicate flow You need both Bullet Lists The 'Zen' Approach Prezi Our small team of technology specialists have a team leader
have a support team
work toward a goal
BYOD Traditional, but hard to visualize the relationships between the team and the goal Simple and stylish, but it doesn't give us the detail we need to truly understand. Tech Teams reach the Goal The Road to BYOT The Team Team Leader Teacher Support Steps needed to integrate technology The End of the Road BYOD!! Working spatially, you can compress the information into a meaningful overview structure and zoom to see the relationships in more detail. The Squint Test Squint and view your overview from a distance...does it still make sense? 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 This overview has been blurred,
but can you still guess the overall theme? The overview implies the tension between the two sides. takeaways: keep it simple let a metaphor inspire you create structure text & overview choose your path with care explore the space! "Prezi is helping reinvent the art of presentation. Farewell, one-dimensional thinking. Welcome instead the power of inter-connection, flexibility, and the unexpected 'Aha!'"
-Chris Anderson, TED Curator Put together by Laramy Wells BBC's "Sherlock" use of the 'Mind Palace' Keep it Simple Silly
