PREZI

Prezi has been called the "PowerPoint
Killer." This presentation platform goes
beyond the normal slideshow style
presentations and allows you to tell a
visually stimulating story by zooming
in and out of concepts. One benefit to
utilizing Prezi is the ability to create a
presentation and remotely present it to
the class. For example, as the Educator
advances the slides, then each students' device advances as well.

SWAY

Since the launch in 1990, PowerPoint has
been the go-to for presentation software.
However, Microsoft realized the need for
a new platform. This new platform is
visible on computers, tablets and phones
and can be accessed via both website
and app. Social media and YouTube videos can be integrated directly into the
presentations with ease. The major benefit of Sway is the accessibility
across multiple devices. Uses of Sway may include presentations,
processes, portfolios and resumes. Viewing a Sway presentation is
like accessing an online magazine with interactive content.

POLL EVERYWHERE
Engage your students and/or staff by asking a question and taking a live poll. The
software works directly with Microsoft
PowerPoint so that you can add Poll
Everywhere slides directly into your
presentations. Not only can the survey
be set up for multiple choice answers,
it can also be set up for open-ended text
responses with an Education Plan!

TAGXEDO

9

You see them everywhere, but you have
no clue how to make them...the infamous word clouds. Worry no more with
Tagxedo to the rescue. This website
allows you create word clouds in realtime by changing fonts, colors, styles,

with your students and the possibilities
are endless. Try creating word clouds
of key terms from a subject or have
your students describe a type of service. Be forewarned, this site

QR STUFF

10

Businesses are utilizing QR Codes, aka
Quick Response Codes, in many forms
of marketing and advertising. These
codes were originally introduced in
Japan as a way of tagging car parts for
quality assurance. Now, they are a phenomenon that has swept the globe. QR
Codes work in two parts: a creator to
make them and a reader to scan them.
QR Codes can be scanned using a QR
Code Reader App, which can be found for free in the App Store. QR
Codes can be created utilizing a site such as QR Stuff.
QR Codes have the ability to store up to 4296 characters and
can be utilized to direct individuals to websites, provide plain text
information, phone numbers, email addresses, and so much more.
These QR Codes work like hyperlinks to provide you information or
direct you to somewhere. Some school uses could include scavenger
hunts, product knowledge information, and general marketing/
advertising information.
