Thing 2 - Round 2

This thing was to explore Prezi, which is another way of creating presentations instead of using Microsoft PowerPoint. I really liked it, but I struggled to figure out what I was doing. This must be a popular web 2.0 tool because when I was working on my video, two different students asked me if I was using Prezi and said they had to make presentations last year for different teachers (some from RB and some from jr. high)...which impressed me. I think I would use this in my classroom as a different way for students to present materials. I often have the students make posters or powerpoints, and I think I'll try Prezi for my next project. That will probably end up being one of my Master Projects for 17 things to chew on.

Here is the Prezi I created for my freshman biology class. The goal was to visually show Protein Synthesis. I'll have to play around with Prezi a lot more to get more creative!
