My lesson tomorrow is content driven, so I need a similar background with the flexibility to house all the topics and sub-topics I need to cover. I am thinking that it is best for me to come up with my own background and content-holders from this point on.
I spent some time working on Prezi in between writing this post and getting my act together this morning. I am now thinking that I will use Prezi on days when I have light content. It is easy to use, fun, and interactive. However, for heavy content days, I think Power Point will work best. Here's why:
- I am presenting linear content that will need to be shown in tables/charts or graphic images
- I am also needing to stop the presentation for the class to interact (yes, Prezi does this, but I have found that because of the interaction between the slides, you have limited landscape to devote to specific topics)
- I think PPT will hold my content better and will keep me on time (I was a little over yesterday)
