    Colleague turned me on to
    http://prezi.com
    and I and the kids love it! Free to educators, kids can access your presentations at home.

    Wow, COOL!

    I spent a few hours playing with this today, and put together a lesson for next week. I'm covering how a bill becomes a law, and so this fit perfectly. Feel free to take a look:

    I really like the flexibility of this, and see it as very good for concepts and other things that I would normally provide a static graphic organizer for. But.... for some things that are more linear, I think PowerPoint would still be useful.

    yes, PowerPoint still good for many things but I like Prezi for an attractive unit intro

    I love prezi! It makes so much more sense to my students who are not sequential thinkers and struggle with PowerPoints.
