Evaluation Matrix #1

Name of teaching resource:
Prezi
Weblink (if web based)
http://www.prezi.com
Who should this digital teaching resource be used with? (ie year/grade)
This could be suitable from year 4 as a teaching tool. 
How should it be used? (e.g. individual, whole class)
It can be used for the whole class as kind of a “power-point slide.” The great thing about Prezi is that it can be accessed by up to 10 students at one time.
Which subject or learning area would it be most appropriate to use in?
Prezi in this case is appropriate for Health and Physical Education.
Identify the strengths of this teaching resource
It’s interactive and because of this, is much less monotonous than a normal power-point presentation.
Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource:
It can cause motion sickness in some people.
-It’s web based, so if you have a bad connection or no access to the internet you can’t use this resource.
Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource:
I would use this for a Physical Education class, I’d have a picture of the human body on the screen and use the zoom features to focus on particular parts of the body e.g the skeletal system. I would give access to the students to use the program and get them to reiterate the information in their own words on a blank piece of paper that has an outline of the human body. I’d have them also draw what they see (filling in the organs etc) and discuss in a group why each part of the human body is important.
