We are presenting the initial overview of our community project for St Ann’s Hospice this week. For the occasion we have put together a PowerPoint (well technically a Keynote) presentation.

In the past I have endured some horrific presentations therefore I hope we have got the balance between content and composition correct. It also got me thinking about what alternative tools are out there that can be used for the same purpose. I had a look and came across Prezi.

I was really excited by the potential of Prezi which offers an online system for creating ‘zooming presentations’ – see this example about the pedagogy of blogging. It enables to create presentations that are visualising interesting but also seem to be very conducive to showing relationships and flows of data or ideas.

Hopefully our more traditional presentation will work this time, however Prezi is certainly a tool I will consider using in the future.
