Among the many other web tools we used this year, the one my students and I glommed onto most was Prezi. Prezis are like powerpoints on steroids. You can include any information that you would on a powerpoint – word, pictures, videos, etc – but with some cool effects. And it is my belief that if I can use it, anyone can. It is amazingly easy to use and free if you are using for educational purposes, and because it’s a web-based tool, students could work on them from home or wherever they had access to a computer.
