Prezi Is Now Available on Android Devices - Present Remotely

Cross-posted from my other blog, Android4Schools.com.

The popular presentation tool Prezi has released a new Android app. The new app allows you to access all of the presentations in your Prezi account. You can view your presentations and present them remotely from your Android phone or tablet.

The remote presentation option in Prezi Android works the same way as it does in Prezi for iPad. To present remotely select "present remotely" in your presentation's sharing options. Prezi will generate a remote sharing link that you should then distribute to your audience. Through that link your audience can follow your slides on their laptops, iPads, or Android devices. When you move the slides, the slides move on the devices being used by the members of your audience.

Applications for Education
Using remote presentation services like that available through Prezi's new Android app is a good way to keep your students on the same slide that you're projecting. Likewise, remote presentation services provide a good way for students to share with classmates.

H/T to The Next Web.

76 Examples of Using Haiku Deck in School

Last weekend Kristen Swanson shared some ideas for using Haiku Deck to promote visual literacy. This morning I noticed that the Haiku Deck blog has a post containing five examples of using Haiku Deck in school. That post contains a link to Haiku Deck's Education Case Studies Pinterest board. That board currently contains 76 examples of Haiku Deck being used by students and teachers.

If you're not familiar with it or haven't tried Haiku Deck, here's what you need to know. It's a free iPad app for creating slideshow presentations. There are two features of Haiku Deck that stand out. First, Haiku Deck intentionally limits how much text that you can put on each of your slides. Second, Haiku Deck helps you find Creative Commons licensed images for your presentations. When you type a word or words on your slides you can have Haiku Deck search for images for you. The images that Haiku Deck serves up are large enough to completely fill your slide. You can also upload your own images from your iPad or import images from Instagram and Facebook.

Applications for Education
Here's an example of Haiku Deck being used by first and second grade students.
