Here are 14 infographics for the writing classroom. My personal favorite is the one explaining parallel structure. Share these infographics with students to talk about writing basics or to learn about visual rhetoric.

Hacking Prezi as a Platform for Visual Composition and Design Experimentation – ProfHacker – The Chronicle of Higher Education

Check out this article for ways to use Prezi as a platform that extends beyond a presentation tool:

If one looks past the presentation use case, the combination of the flexibility of a nearly infinite digital canvas and easy-to-use design features makes for a powerful and highly accessible tool for developing thought maps, prototyping designs for digital interfaces and physical spaces, creating bespoke visualizations, and as a platform for comparative visual analysis and annotation.

In Tech Comm, have students create their definition/description assignment in Prezi, using it to annotate and analyze visual representations. Likewise in Intermediate Comp, students could also visually represent arguments, creating texts that analyze how people/groups define the terms of an argument.
