Al, I like the idea of using Prezi's instead of PPT. What are the differences between the two mediums? How did the students like developing their Prezi's? Do you have any examples of students' final projects for us to look at?

Al-- What a great way to foster two very important 21st Century Skills in your classroom (Integration of Technology and a Global Perspective). This seems like a wonderful tool for visual learners, and a great way to add multimedia and animation to a presentation. Moreover, I really find great value in having your students investigate national and provincial policies related to special education. In far too many countries, including our own, the needs of students with special needs fail to be met. Iím even thinking about ways in which pre-service special education candidates could be paired-up across countries to investigate national policies towards the teaching of students with special needs (maybe via a site like epals or iearn.org)?
