Prezi the most thought out advancement in presentation software in years has taken the presentation community by storm.
Powerpoint, the very word instantly brings thoughts of boredom and despair. Boredeom because I immediately know I'm going to mentally check out. Despair because a Powerpoint usually means I have to be present for this "revealing" of information.
Ok, for those of us who try to make them fun (some are better than others) I'll give you a break. However, why are we trying to make them fun? Because most of us would rather be on the clean up crew after Mardi Gras rather than try to engage with a boring, linear tool called Powerpoint.
With all the buzz where is the beef? To put it simply, Prezi allows you to add text, images, videos, and more into a canvas. The unique feature is the zooming capability. It allows you to see the big picture but to zoom in on details to see how critical pieces of information interconnect. It is a wholistic approach that is combines the left and right lobes for bihemispherical integration.
