Prezi is a creative alternative to PowerPoint. Jing is a screen sharing tool. In the example below, I first made a Prezi, and then I recorded myself manipulating it with Jing. I have been using Jing in my online classes for over a year now with some positive results. Although this was my first attempt at a Prezi presentation, I see huge potential in its educational uses!
Keep your eyes open for upcoming posts that will individually highlight Prezi and Jing.
Update: If you want to find out more info on how to use Jing, read my post here where I was a guest blogger on the Teacher Challenge.
