Digital Doors was created as a place for me to blog and share resources that I think would be helpful for teachers integrating technology in meaningful ways in their classroom. My goal would be to write a blog post a week, but with my busy schedule, that doesn't happen. I write when I can and rely on nifty tools to help me share what I am finding when I don't have time to write.

Prezi is an interesting tool for creating non-linear presentations. This is a fun tool to use when you want to try something a little different than PowerPoint. In fact, you can pop your Power Point right into Prezi for a cool new look. I have to admit to just scratching the surface on using this tool. Lots more to learn. What has been fun though, is as I have shared this tool with other teachers, they have wowed me with the great uses they have come up with for using this tool in their classrooms and in sharing with other teachers.

Greg Doud is using Prezi as a tool to review content from his class. This is a very visual way to share information with his students. He used Jing to record his presentation and posted it on his ThinkSocial blog. Students are able to go back and review and replay as needed.

Teresa Creelman used Prezi to share Blooms Taxonomy Across Stages of Language Acquisition. I loved how she used this tool in a very simple way to make a powerful point.
