Engaging Non-Linear Thinkers: Prezi and collaborative technology in the social science classroom and workplace

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Prezi is a free web-based presentation tool which appeals to a broad spectrum of learning styles in an innovative non-linear format. Although it was created for math instruction, Prezi adapts readily to the demands of socials sciences. It easily incorporates diverse multimedia, allows your audience to visualize historical events in context, and enables you to map out thematic connections to reinforce the "big picture".  This session will explore how Prezi can be utilized by educators, administrators, and students, including real-world demonstrations from an undergraduate history course.  Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate in real time on a special presentation, so bring your laptops!
