Prezi-licious!

This term in Y8 Rich Task they are looking at ‘Our Changing World’ and I and the other language teachers have been invited in to lead cultural sessions on our specialist areas.  So today I tried out something new, a Prezi presentation that I had been inspired to ‘have a go at’ by Pete Goodman at chinesestaffroom.com during his workshop on ICT in the classroom at SSAT’s Annual Chinese Conference.  My Prezi was based on the marvellous Jan Stuart’s talk from the British Museum and focused on why Chinese should be learnt not only for its language but also for its culture.  We looked at the inventions and discoveries that China and the Chinese have made and without which our world would be unrecognisable!  The students loved it and got really stuck in to their own research!
