I chose to use Prezi for my PowerPoint alternative. I did some research and visited many different sites, but I found this one to be the most user friendly for the needs of this assignment. I also signed up for powtoon.com as well because it had more of an elementary school vibe. As an elementary school teacher, I think that the site might be better and more user friendly for my students. I truly enjoyed using Prezi and I will use this more often then PowerPoint. The graphics and images seemed to be more engaging for students.
As for my students, I believe that the students can express themselves differently through these non-PowerPoint sites. Allowing students to use these sites will allow them to show understanding of the subject as well as share with other classmates and keep their attention.
I do believe that I will use non-PowerPoint sites as often, if not more so, as I do PowerPoint.
Here is a link to a non-PowerPoint presentation I did about the Lewis and Clark expedition. I encourage you to take a look!!
