Safar, Ammar H.
College Student Journal, v49 n4 p491-512 Win 2015
This longitudinal descriptive qualitative evaluation action research case study explored the reflections/experiences (i.e., their perceptions, attitudes, and feelings) of 450 pre-service teachers in the College of Education (COE) at Kuwait University (KU) over three academic years regarding the use of Prezi as a facilitative storytelling presentation tool for the teaching and learning processes of education. The results of this study were very encouraging and in high support of using Web 2.0/3.0 presentation tools in general and Prezi in particular into education. The qualitative nature of the data collection instruments' used in this research, the implementation period, as well as the ability to scrutinize a large sample size all played a remarkable role in strengthening the statistical significance and confidence in the collected data. This study's findings are coherent with the results of research studies conducted over the past five years as well as the assumptions postulated. The results of such research study could assist scholars, academics, educators, teachers, administrators, instructional technology leaders, professionals, practitioners, as well as policy and decision makers determining and defining appropriate solutions/actions to educational challenges.
