Slide presentations are common in nearly any work place or career path. They are useful tools for writers because they tell a story or convey information in very concise terms. Prezi is a free online program that can be used to create presentations. It offers templates which can be modified to suit the user’s needs.
Telling a story through slide presentations requires a similar multi-literate understanding of technology as creating an artifact in iMovie. Particularly, choosing the best template, language, images or animations to work in conjunction to successfully convey information or stories requires keen attention to detail and creativity. Furthermore, these elements working together are key to today’s media convergence movement.
Like news stories, slide presentations require an economy of language and precision because they tell stories within limited time and space.
