Last week I was introduced to the site prezi.com by my boss, Michael McBrien. He had been exposed to it after being a panelist in one of the schools here in Singapore, and was impressed by how dynamic it had seemed. After a while, he mentioned, it was a bit too much. Perhaps all the whirling and zooming that distinguishes prezi from PowerPoints got a bit sickening.
Nevertheless, he asked me if I had known about it.
I hadn’t, but I tested it out. I AM IN LOVE. Not only is it clear and easy to use, it also allows you to focus on different key points of your presentation. You also get to monitor the flow of your information. (And this thing is probably perfect for mind-mapping!)
