This re-mediating project has definitely taken a toll on me. My original thought was to make a Prezi. What better way to share facts about adderall with students to try to convince them that it is not a casual study buddy like they may think it is? However, the major issues I am coming up with are that A) Prezi is pretty sensitive (and confusing) and B) I want it to be EXCITING and ATTENTION GRABBING! Is Prezi capable of doing that??
A) When I say Prezi is sensitive, you probably don’t know what I mean unless you’ve played with it yourself. If you want to add something in, change a path, or move any shape or symbol, there is one specific way to do it. The shapes or symbols move very very easily, which makes it difficult when you are just trying to move things around or mess with the layout a little bit. Your entire base could be messed up just by a quick tap on your trackpad.
B) I would love to add in video clips and photos and interesting facts. For the facts, Prezi is absolutely the way to go. However, for the MEDIA (video clips for the most part), It would probably be MORE exciting and attention grabbing in the form of an I-movie. However, when I finish messing around with Prezi, I know I will be able to get it to where I want it.
Lastly, I think it would be extremely cool if I were actually able to show this Prezi to students, and it could hopefully have the real affect I was hoping it would have on Michigan Students. Once my final draft is done, I need to figure out who to talk to about possible getting my Prezi shown on those TVs in the UGLI. Does anybody know who I could talk to about that?
So, as my title says, I have been re-mediating and re-mediating again and again. It is definitely a difficult process, but I know the end result will make it worth it! More importantly, I can’t wait to see what everyone else has been working on!!
