Learn Prezi: an alternative to Powerpoint

   

"Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them. The result: visually captivating presentations that lead your audience down a path of discovery." -Prezi.com

Quickly becoming the new standard for presentations, Prezi is an excellent tool for teaching students of all ages. Learn how to create attractive Prezi's and capture your peers, students or professors attention.

Learn SMART Technology in the Multimedia Classroom

SMART technology is another great way to enhance your presentations for both classes you are taking and classes you are teaching. The interactive white board, or SMART Board allows you to use a stylus to circle and highlight parts of the screen, giving further emphasis. You and your students can touch the surface directly when working with Prezi or similar softwares, making learning fun and intuitive. 

SMART Notebook software allows you to create presentations designed to work perfectly with a SMART Board. A variety of tools, images, animations and more are just a small part of the benefits of using Notebook Software. Notebook can be downloaded to your personal computer as well so you can prepare presentations at home or on the go. Clickers are another fun feature of SMART Notebook Software, which allow you to create tests or quizzes. Each student in the room gets a clicker (like a small remote control) which allows them to select answers to the questions. At the end of the test or quiz, you can display a poll of the results and identify how many students answered correctly or not.
