Teachers can Import their PowerPoints into Prezi



Prezi gives you the option to import your PowerPoints and “Prezify” them. Prezi is a web 2.0 tool that has revolutionized slide presentations. Instead of simple slide transitions that PowerPoint presentations incorporates, Prezi utilizes a zooming user interface (ZUI) that zooms in or out to different slides. Here is the process you will need to take to import your PowerPoints:

  1. Click on “PowerPoint” when you are in editing mode.
  2. Choose the PowerPoint you want to import from your computer.
  3. Insert all, or drag and drop the slides you want to import.
  4. Click the X on the sidebar.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

Here’s one of them:

Comparisons. Studies reveal the brain pays more attention to what’s new or different. It’s natural for people to get curious about something new, foreign, weird, unpredictable or different. When eLearning content is surprising or unexpected, ignoring it become impossible. According to Carmine Gallo’s blog “Why TED Talks Are Impossible to Resist”, experts in the subject explained that “Our brains are trained to look for something brilliant and new, something that stands out, something that looks delicious.” To get your learners to pay attention for a long time, you need to keep giving them new things to think about, but obviously you don’t want to stray too far from the topic. Making a comparison, simile, or metaphor helps focus attention. Plus, if you refer to a familiar aspect of the learner’s life, they may find it easier to grasp your point.

Why It Pays to Write Tutorials

by Sharon Milne, Tuts+ Vector & Drawing Editor

I’ve been obsessed with vector art for over 10 years now. When I say obsessed, I mean that I have sat with nothing on my mind, scanning the room for objects which would be interesting to render in vector. I’ve had dreams where I’m a tool in Adobe Illustrator. I’ve often stared at people in public thinking, “Damn, they’d make an awesome subject for a vector portrait.” There’s nothing I find more relaxing than to vector a complex illustration.

If we rewind back to four years ago, I wasn’t in the line of work I am now. I was in a government job, doing monotonous tasks I had no passion for. I would have loved to make a career out of my passion—I just lacked confidence. I was confident enough to post my illustrations online in the usual art communities out there and had even built up a following of thousands, but when it came to the idea of people paying for my work, I didn’t think I was good enough. I had an interest in writing tutorials and, within the communities I was a part of, I used to share the odd trick or tip for others. I got a kick out of helping people learn.

When I first started looking at becoming a freelancer, I looked at the paths of others in my field. I asked questions about how they got started, and many came back saying they entered the freelance world by writing tutorials. It seemed natural for me to take a similar path.

How to Study: 10 Study Tips to Improve your Learning - ExamTime

Read the original post on the ExamTime blog here.

Memorising textbooks is an outdated form of study. You could spend days on end trying to cram it all in but the results will not be very promising.

Thankfully, there are much more fun and rewarding study techniques that can improve your exam results. Here are some of those study techniques:

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining

Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. Ideally you should do a comprehensive read of a text before you even consider underlining anything. Only on the second reading should you proceed to underline the most notable aspects.

The act of underlining something means you are engaging with certain key aspects of the text. There is no need to go crazy and highlight entire blocks of text. You should highlight one key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information.

Study Tip 2: Make Your Own Study Notes

Taking Notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. In most cases, the key is to be able to summarise the content as quickly as possible while not leaving out any key info.

When creating Notes, you can do it the traditional way with the good ol’ pen and paper or you can utilise online tools, such as ExamTime’s Notes feature.

Study Tip 3: Mind Mapping

A good Mind Map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation.

ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams.


Study Tip 4: Flashcards

Using Flashcards is a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study.

Using Flashcards for memorising can become a fun process unlike a lot of other study tools. On top of this, online Flashcards allow you to save a lot of work and time in actually creating your Flashcard decks.  What’s more is that they are always readily available online so you have access to them 24/7.

Study Tip 5: Case Studies

Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects.

It’s always of great benefit to examine practical cases studies to accompany your study of pure theory. In this way you can better understand the application of the theory and what it’s thesis actually states.

Study Tip 6: Quizzes

Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends.

Study Tip 7: Brainstorming

This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward.

Some ideas that sounded great before will be ruled out straight away afterwards while others that sounded crazy before will be seen to have great promise. Using Mind Maps is an ideal way of capturing all this info as it mirrors the explosive nature of your thought processes.

Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules

Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person.

A classic example is ‘Richard of York Gave Battle In Vain’. This Mnemonic rule is for remember the primary colours : Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

Study Tip 9: Organising Your Study

One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a study timetable gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational. ExamTime has a free Study Planner tool which makes organising your study extremely easy.

Study Tip 10: Drawing

Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text, that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. That is why ExamTime’s tools allow you to add images. ExamTime’s tools are geared towards helping different types of learners as visual learning is often overlooked in classrooms, which are more text or aural based.

Many of these study tips & techniques are not new but are well known to students. However, what is new is the way in which you can now utilise them . Today new technologies have changed how we can interact with these study techniques. So it makes sense to reassess how you use these techniques and see what new tools and techniques you can incorporate into your study.

Make sure to clarify the times and days you are available to hear from parents.  

4. Get Healthy

Taking care of yourself in the first few weeks before school starts is essential to having a healthy mind and spirit that lasts throughout the year.
