Presentations

Photo Peach provides an easy way to create slideshows from pictures.
Once registered, simply upload your photos, choose some music and you will have a slideshow!
See this example on Year 7 thoughts on learning journals.

Prezi allows you to create dynamic presentations which provide an overview and allow you to zoom in on any element. There are no individual slides, you work on a large canvas on which you can zoom in and out. You can create a path to show parts of your canvas in a particular order. Learn Prezi.
