In Joni Garcia's blog titled Communicate Nutrition, she introduces Prezi presentations, "a cloud-based presentation software that launches you into a new world between whiteboards and traditional slides...you can create visually captivating presentations that explore ideas and the connections between them....[Prezis] allow more creativity in a 3-dimensional platform." Therefore the presentations are not linear! Some of the cool features outlined by Joni about Prezi are:
--> Add storyline
--> Present online or offline
--> Collaborations in real-time
--> Prezi Viewer iPad app: view, retouch and present your Prezis from you iPad
Prezi is only one example of many applications that will help my students and I learn. I could use the iPad to download books and share them. There are many educational apps available from, "...interactive lessons to study aide to productivity tools, there's an app for every learner." First, I would download the lessons, videos, and applications that I chose and organized. Then I would use the iPad as a presentation aide during classroom time. I could divide the students into groups to interact and learn through various applications and games. I would also use the iPad to create study aides and reminders to the students.
Overall, the iPad is just the beginning of the all the educational tech tools that will help. Hopefully, I can incorporate more when the time comes.
