  • If my presentation is linear, I may use PowerPoint...I’m really not a big PowerPoint fan , but it works OK in some situations. If I want to incorporate interactive components such as games into my presentation, I usually use SMART Notebook software. This software is great for when you want your audience to be actively engaged. If I want to show relationships between concepts or I want to show the bigger picture and then focus on the individual parts, I have started using Prezi. Prezi offers moves away from the linear limitations of PowerPoint and offers more flexibility for presenting than Notebook software. I just discovered a new application called Ahead that appears to have even more possiblities.
