Holly from Year 4 made her Prezi on CATS.

I have introduced and posted a number of things about Prezi before....
use the search bar if you missed them.
This Prezi example is a young students one.
If young Holly can create an interesting Prezi 
we can assume that many of our students (and staff members) 
would be able to use this tool too!

What will our kids think of todays technology?

Technology tools are being superseded so quickly these days. So many tools that have been invented and popular are not having a long life at all.

I remember looking forward to being able to have my own walkman. By the time I could afford one they were well and truly old technology! They were looking to get the newer technologies-iPods.

My first mobile phone in 1994 was a bag phone to use in the car. The reception out in the rural areas of NSW was very intermittent. I wonder what kids would think if they saw one today.

Spencer whipped up a fun Google Docs presentation that I've embedded below for your enjoyment.
