Last week I came across 6 Ed Tech Tools to Try in 2015, by Jennifer Gonzalez of Cult of Pedagogy, as I was connecting with one of my favorite Twitter Professional Learning Networks (PLN): #edtech.

In her post, Gonzalez highlights several tools for teaching and learning, and Emaze was a web-based presentation tool that caught my eye.

Think of Emaze as a super-charged version of PowerPoint, with enhanced features similar to, but even more advanced than those you would use with Prezi.  What makes Emaze a great tool is the fact that it is extremely easy to use, cloud based, allows for multi-device access (yes, tablets, computers AND smartphones), and has amazing 2D and 3D templates that will take your breath away!

Here are just a few ways you can incorporate Emaze into your life and classroom:

  • Back to School Night presentations
  • Classroom lesson and instructional delivery
  • Student presentations: book reviews, research reports, etc.
  • Online portfolios

“Record an emaze presentation with a voice-over for use as an instructional video, a video yearbook, or a promotional video for a school, district, or classroom.” – Jennifer Gonzalez

Emaze is FREE and includes a wide variety of templates to explore and create; but there is an education plan if you wish to upgrade to a premium presentation package.
