Our promotion today comes from our friends at Prezi. If you’re looking to do something different with your presentations, you know, move on from the typical PowerPoint or Keynote slides, Prezi is a great alternative. From their website, “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.” There is a free basic version of Prezi, but we will be offering all of our STAR Discovery Educators a free 3 month upgrade to the PRO version. The great people at Prezi have created a special Teacher Appreciation Week Prezi for you. This Prezi includes a timeline template that you can download and edit for other projects. Did you know that Prezi recently passed 10 million users? They’ve also recently released a PowerPoint import.
This is a great deal with potential for even more. Prezi has recently created an exciting educational community called Prezi U. This educational community is a place for educators to share resources, find new tips and tricks, discovery Prezi templates, and learn more about using Prezi in education. We are encouraging you to create an account on Prezi U and contribute to the community. If you, as a STAR Discovery Educator, upload and share a Prezi or participate in the Prezi U community, your PRO account will be extended to a full year! Prezi U is a growing educational community and adding ideas and content from our DEN STARs will certainly be beneficial.
For information on signing up for your Prezi account upgrade, visit the DEN Teacher Appreciation Week website.
