Teachers and students are usually the people who need to give the most presentations so it is important to stay motivated and use fresh ideas.
A boring PowerPoint filled with nothing but bullet points is the last thing anyone wants to see. However a Prezi presentation with the wrong use of zoom can be even worse, as the audience will only remember the spinning and zooming transitions, not the content.
So how do make make your presentation better, but not overkill it? Generally a Prezi presentation consists of one “big picture” concept and then you would simply zoom into the details of the picture. For example you can take an image of an apple tree and you could zoom into the individual apples on the tree. Of course every presentation is different, but it is important to stay creative and not let presentations become the most boring part of learning.
