    Myst by Maria H.

    I thought it would be of interest to post my thoughts, conclusions and also comments from my class after our first week of exploring and using Myst in our classroom.

    Using Prezi as a lesson starter 

    Prezi is an amazing online presentation tool that makes creating dynamic presentations very easy. I’ve only found out about this tool and I’m posting a rather quickly created Myst presentation for a lesson introduction tomorrow but I’m very impressed with it’s¬†capabilities.

    Some other uses for Prezi in the classroom

    • Story boards – include children’s own drawings, video work, written ideas
    • Lesson introductions on any topic if you have the time to create it
    • Mind mapping ideas with small groups or as a whole class activity
    • Instructions
    • Directions
    • Explanations
    • Recounts that come alive

    There are no doubt many more so feel free to leave your ideas in the comments. Have you used Prezi? What do you think about it?
