|Who should this digital teaching resource be used with? (ie year/grade)
This could be suitable from year 4 as a teaching tool.

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.
