Students are encouraged to express themselves in many ways. Sometimes as a adults we assume that they can only do this by writing simple sentences or drawing stick figures. With the technology resources that surround us every day students must be wondering if they are able to do those "adult" computer programs, but no one ever gave them the opportunity to explore.
This week students used a presentation format called Prezi from www.prezi.com. This online program is very similar to a PowerPoint, but much more interactive. I took a course in my master's program that centered around this form of presentation and a lot of my colleagues thought it was too difficult or too elaborate to use. Well after two very basic lessons with our second graders, they took off with this program and created amazing presentations that were better than any I saw in college!

graders can be as they explore this tool of presentation. We will definitely be using this in the future and I know the kids are eager too, as well!
