Abstract

This study examined the effect of the use of a non-linear multimedia presentation model, Prezi, on middle school students’ attitude toward learning science, engagement in school science, and impact on learning science. Prezi was used as the primary instructional model for an intense six-week intervention period in seventh grade science classrooms. A total of 29 students, from two science classes, participated in the study. Each student completed a pre- and post-survey to determine attitudes and beliefs about learning science and also completed an open-ended survey at the end of the intervention to determine the effectiveness of Prezi as an instructional tool.
