Prezi: Trading Linear Presentations for Conceptual Learning Experiences in Counselor Education
Rockinson-Szapkiw, A. , Knight, A. ,& Tucker, J . (2011, January) Prezi: trading linear presentations for conceptual learning experiences in counselor education. Counsel for Higher Education Pedagogy. Blacksburg, VA. Available at: http://works.bepress.com/amanda_rockinson_szapkiw/18 Concepts are not learned in a vacuum, rather in relation to and in context. Thus, it can be argued that that instruction presented in a linear fashion does not align

with how students think and may unconsciously discourages hierarchical thinking as it forces viewers to progress from one concept to another without
relation or integration with the foundational concept. Prezi enables educators to escape the confines of linear presentations and encourage knowledge construction via higher order thinking skills in a manner that uses both visual and auditory channels. Unlike the linear model that moves from concept to concept, Prezi encourages learners to identify patterns, comparisons, relationships, and differences between information. Like a concept map, Prezi s hierarchical style moves between concepts, topics, and subtopics while still retaining its relation to the foundational idea visually and, through the instructor s voice, auditory.

creators are encouraged to think in terms of groupings and hierarchies. The presentation becomes a visual [concept] map of the content, with the layout also reflecting the relationships between items within the presentation. (Emphasis is mine)
