I wanted to share a few other things. In class I was going to show you how to "publish" various notes and/or resource lists using Diigo. Instead I made one more video for you. Both of these "publishing" options were ones I suggested you do for a Brain Rules Notetaking Challenge.
On that note, I wanted to share this video I just found and watched. It helps confirm that what/why/how of the Notetaking Challenge. It could also be a fun one to share with students and/or administrators!
Finally, I was wondering how/why many of your Prezis looked similar. Prezi now does templates! Ha; I didn't know that! From playing with prezi, watching what others do with prezi, and facilitating a workshop or two on prezi, I've come up with the following three types/categories of how a prezi is organized:
- Prezi Blocks: Prezi gives you the ability to mark area with frames & shapes. You can use these to help make layers as well as make your path through the presentation. Most of your templates, as well as my first prezi (my dissertation defense, yeah, I'm crazy that way) used this organization patter.
- Master Image: Having one large image as your background (it can be a more "normal" image, or something like a Wordle or something even more abstract) and then move in, out, and around the image. Consider clicking through at least 10 steps in my "normal" image example. See how I buried images and text within the larger image. You don't really see them until after you've zoomed in on them.
- Master Text: Like the master image, having one or two key words or a phrase that you then weave your presentation around and through. (Example 1, Example 2).
