Time for a new blog post… I’ve written before comparing Prezi and PowerPoint, then I didn’t have access to a projector for a year, so I couldn’t really use it much. Now I’ve got the kit again I can give it a whirl (and a zoom).
One of the things I’ve always thought Prezi should be good for is producing content for learners to self-access. I’m trying to think how I can improve this in the resources I produce. The Prezi shared here is based on the much-maligned Skills for Life ESOL resources. I think tat ‘s fine as a resource to display through a data projector, but I’m not sure how to make it a bit more suitable for independent study.
I’ve tried to make sure that these resources embrace the non-linearity allowed by Prezi by providing labels for each section and allowing users to easily zoom to the desired section. Adding useful links,that were not included in he lesson would be useful here for learners self-access should they wish to explore the topics further.
How would you use Prezi to promote independent learning?Copyright info: The pre-existing resources that are used here are Crown Copyright, but “Extracts from this item may be reproduced for non-commercial or training purposes on the condition that the source is acknowledged”; The source is http://rwp.excellencegateway.org.uk/ESOL/ESOL%20teaching%20and%20learning%20materials/Level%201/ The comparative images are my own.
