DEN Teacher Appreciation Week: Day One

Posted on the DEN National Blog by Lance Rougeux
starHappy DEN Teacher Appreciation Week! This is one of our favorite times of the year because it gives us an excuse to celebrate all of the great things our STARs do each and every day. We have an amazing week of special surprises lined up for the DEN community so make sure to check the DEN blog every day.

So, to kick things off with a bang, our friends at Prezi have very generously agreed to provide all STAR Discovery Educators with a free Educator Pro account for a year (normally $59).

All you have to do to get your free Educator Pro account from Prezi is visit this page on the new DEN online community website, log in and complete the form.

Then join us today at 5 PM ET for a webinar where you will learn how to get started with Prezi.

Are you curious about Prezi and can’t wait until the webinar? Here’s some more information.

preziPrezi is a slideless presentation tool that is based on a digital canvas, where you can create relations between pieces of information and visualize your arguments by zooming and panning around.

Using Prezi will help your class stand out because:

1. Prezi uses a spatial approach to present information. Students will remember more of your arguments if they see the big picture and the details simultaneously.

2. Prezi encourages student involvement in the topic at hand. Long monologues are not an option anymore as you move around the canvas together in the classroom!

3. You can simply save and reuse interesting presentations from the growing database of reusable educational prezis.

Check out some examples at the Prezi showcase .

One that we really like is the Day in the Life of a Discovery Educator.

To learn more about Prezi join us today (Monday, May 3 at 5 PM ET) for a webinar.

Happy Zooming and go register for your free Educator Pro account from our friends at Prezi.
