They made it with Prezi on iPad!



We reached out to top Prezi Viewer users, to ask how the Prezi iPad app helps their work. Middle school teachers Ben Robinson and Mark Davis, and PR communications expert Gonzalo Adriasola agreed: Using Prezi Viewer completely changes their work routines, and opens up new horizons in their careers. Upon our request, they kindly shared their experiences with everyone.

 

What do you use your iPad for?


Gonzalo Adriasola (Internal and external communications expert at PR agency Hill and Knowlton): In meetings with my team or clients.

Ben Robinson (Middle school World History teacher in Great Valley, Pennsylvania):
In the classroom we use apps like Google Earth to explore places like Egypt and the Great Pyramids. They use Prezi Viewer to review prezis that I have made and get a better understanding of the topics covered in class.

Mark Davis (high school science teacher at Westview High School in Avondale, AZ):
I use my iPad for nearly everything: email, Facebook, twitter, rss feeds, blogging, Skype, reading, and light word processing. As an educator, I use my iPad as a tablet to control my school laptop and SmartBoard, take roll, type and post assessments on the fly, and communicate with students through the class Edmodo website and text messaging services.

How did you get to know Prezi Viewer?

Gonzalo Adriasola: I love Prezi, so once I got my iPad I was looking for the app.

Ben Robinson: I have had ten iPads in my class room since January 2011, and knew that being able to show my prezis to my students on the iPads would have big benefits. For example, they can view the prezi at their own speed and move back and forth on the path freely until they are ready to move on. So basically, I would check the app store frequently hoping it would appear, and it did.

Mark Davis: I just started using it and testing its features to see what it could do. I looked at each of my Prezis on the Viewer to learn what its capabilities were and came up with ideas for how I could used it in the classroom.

How does Prezi Viewer help in your work?
 

Gonzalo Adriasola: It's very useful to bring my ideas to every meeting.

Ben Robinson: Prezi Viewer allows my students to view the Prezis I have created at their own speed.  Students can zoom into different parts, and explore more freely.  The prezis are far clearer than on my smartboard, and allow students to see pictures in much more detail. The Prezi Viewer allows students to sit in small groups and explore. This helps foster discussion and deeper understanding. They also can use Prezis that I have made to help them stay organized. I have created virtual notebooks for my students that helps them keep their papers in order.

Mark Davis: It allows me to show my Prezi presentations on each student's iPad. I simply installed the Viewer on each iPad and synced it to a classroom account through which my students can access the presentations.

What would you suggest for other users?

Gonzalo Adriasola: To always innovate. Prezi is a field of opportunities…We can all play there.

Ben Robinson: If you are a teacher and not using Prezi, what are you waiting for? I think Prezi is far superior to PowerPoint and so do the student I teach. I feel that Prezi allows me to be far more creative in my presentations and the students can see more connections between the ideas I am teaching. I never feel as though I’m leaving a concept behind when moving to a new one. We are able to move seamlessly from one concept to the next.

Mark Davis: I would suggest experimenting as much as possible with Prezi and the Prezi Viewer to learn what they can do, whether you're in business or education. The options for creating presentations are at the right mix for creativity and engagement, without going overboard with every bell and whistle imaginable. It actually makes for a very eye-catching presentation that takes less time to produce than using the popular slideshow makers; anything that saves time, yet is a quality product or service, is a must for hardworking teachers.

Where is the zebra tool with the iPad prezi app?

Prezi for iPad has been a disappointment. It's okay if you have no embedded files in the presentation (pdf, png), but if you do, they look like rubbish. Makes it impossible to use for corporate presentations.

The lack of custom logo for embedded presentations (with the Pro subscription fee) is infuriating. Many of us need to embed in HTML, but can't do it because you exclude this. You don't understand corporate needs at all.

Prezi Viewer for the iPad features a simple editor, which allows you to tweak your presentations before showing them. It does not feature a full editor, neither the bubble menu. For more information, please go to: http://prezi.com/ipad/.

Hi dasein,

could you please be a bit more specific about your problem? Could you send onver a Prezi URL that features "rubbish" looking files when opened on the iPad? Also, we don't fully understand what you mean by "embed in HTML" Would like to see clearer what you meant here.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free.

The options for creating presentations are at the right mix for creativity and engagement, without going overboard with every bell and whistle imaginable.
Maybe nip over to Investment Property for well-researched news.
