I’m glad to have been introduced to Prezi. I think it has some great potential for the writing classroom. I’ve seen a few sites where it has been used to teach poetry, for example. But I think it has interesting application for a range of composition approaches. It allows you to easily fly words and text around, along with images and video. I see it as a pretty cool way to to present lesson material, but I think putting it into the hands of students, with the combination of graphical composition of their own words and publishing their work to their fellow classmates, would offer a compelling invitation to the composition process.
I’ve included some links below to a few Prezi poetry and composition sites that I took inspiration from for the Prezi I made for my final New Media Text document.
