#1 - Zooming into details of a picture
Add an arrow pointing to a key detail in an image.
Clicking on the arrow during "Show" will zoom in
until the arrow fills the screen - a quick and easy way to focus on key details in a diagram (e.g. a political cartoon, a diagram of the human body, a map, a work of art).
Press the space bar to zoom back out.
#2 - Dynamic Venn Diagram
Create overlapping circles using the "Frame" command.
Use these to create a venn diagram containing images and text investigating a key question (e.g. "Was Life Good or Bad in the Middle Ages?")
Images can be dragged (in editing mode) into the correct spot by students during discussion.
#3 - Embed YouTube Videos Embed a YouTube video by pasting the url of the video into an empty text box. This only works when you are online and with the new editor version.
#4 - Get Students to make a Prezi
Prezi is a great way to get students to revise or break down a topic.
Provide them with this Prezi Quickstart Guide as a handout.
What key question will they investigate?
What images will they use?
How will they lay the material out on the canvas?
What path will they draw through their animation?
Students are imaginative: they will produce timelines, venn diagrams, living graphs and much else besides!
#5 - Build up a Prezi over the duration of a topic
Start with a topic heading.
Surround the frame with topic strands.
Within each topic strand add smaller frames with facts, links, pictures and media as you tackle each strand.
Although other tools exist, Prezi is free and simple to use. Simple is good. And unlike most mind maps (except the superb VUE from Tufts,) it doesn't impose any structure.
#6 - Use Prezi as a mind map used at Island Pacific School
I don't want to steal the idea, but here is an example of a mind map I made with Prezi and the blog post I wrote about it!

#7 - Prezi for vocabulary Type in the word to be defined and zoom in on the definition ... good for introducing, review, studying vocabulary. Add images to the words and Zoom into them, too. @vbek
#8 - Global Learning Collaborations Students from schools around the world plan and work collaboratively on Prezi presentations. @vbek by woodleywonderworks

# 11 Using Prezi to Study Urbanisation by Embedding Google Street View Videos I created this prezi to look at the processes of Urbanisation and Suburbanisation. I created Screencast whilst using Google street view, upload them to Youtube and embedded them in to my Prezi as Youtube Videos. http://prezi.com/7xoybadwy3r2/people-in-cities-newcastle/ Mark Rollins:- http://muppetmasteruk.blogspot.com/
#12 - Upload documents for class discussion
Upload a PDF and use Prezi's frames to zoom in on relevant sections for discussion. You can use this for all sorts of activities such as source analysis in History or examining a poem in English.
#13 - Using Photographs from History
Gradually reveal the wider context of a photograph by first zooming in on a small detail and then gradually zooming out. This is a good starter activity as it gets pupils to ask questions. http://prezi.com/osqkveggruux/civil-rights/
