Prezi.com

I've been playing around with a free online presentation tool that I came across last week.   www.prezi.com has been around for about a year now and has made big waves in the world of presentations.  I've seen it around but only just got round to giving it a go myself over the past week.

It works on the principal that you use size to emphasise and after years of using Powerpoint this was the most difficult thing to to get used to.  The application itself is simple and easy to use - much easier to learn than Powerpoint.  Well....this is my first presentation, and there aren't enough images and too many zooms no doubt, but I'll definitely be using this again.  I'm sure it'll get easier and I think it will be much easier to use in the classroom - and should grab the students attention (or make them motion sick!).  The zooming effect is certainly very powerful when using a projector.
