Please post three original research ideas about Prezi before Tuesday at midnight. Each of your posts must include background research and references to web and/or other sources that discuss the use of Prezi. This assignment helps to generate the needed background references and information from which you will build your wiki chapter. This is an individual assignment -- each team member needs to make a minimum of 3 posts with individual reference contributions. These can be informational, help answer the questions you need to answer, or be lesson plan ideas. Make sure you put it in the body of the page - so click Edit at the top of the page. Do not put it in the comments. Also, put your name with your contribution.

The teams will investigate and answer the following questions about the application:
a. What is the title of the application? Who developed it?
b. What is the purpose of the application (that is, what does it do)?
c. How does it work? Briefly, what does one have to do to start using it?
d. How is it related to other applications (that is, can it be used in conjunction with other applications)?
e. What are some unique ways of using this application?
f. How could the application be used within an educational/learning situation? For example, generate multiple content area lesson plans for each of the following areas:
     1) elementary
     2) secondary
     3) post secondary
     4) business/industry
g. What are some examples (e.g., web sites) of it being used to illustrate its current educational value or potential value?
h. For those teams with international partners, how is the application used in their countries? Are there unique features of the application that may be more relevant to those outside of the US?

Hey guys, this source looks pretty useful. It has some opinions from new users as well as some brief history of first application of our program. It should give us a couple different avenues.

Hi everyone! This is a YouTube video that explains the use of Prezi at different venues. Since we will be explaining how to use Prezi in the classroom, this video could help us veiw other presentations in different environments

Here is an actual Prezi presentation that we can view. It is explaining Digital Storytelling, which can be produced through Prezi. I figured Digital Storytelling would be helpful in an Elementary level classroom to make reading more interesting. It turns a normal book into a visually appealing experience!

This site talks about Prezi as being revolutionary. The review is sumed up with the bold statement "Prezi will completely transform the way presentations are given in the future".

This example of Prezi is specific for design. It shows how to create tools such as maps and picture slide-shows. This will help all of us when creating our lesson plans
