Presented above is my presentation of the Arab Spring, focusing solely on the major countries involved, as well as the correlation between protests experienced and regime changes enacted.
Thought-Process Behind Using Prezi:
This was my first time using Prezi, and I loved it! Much better than the traditional PowerPoint presentations from Microsoft in my opinion.
After I decided on using the Arab Spring as my historical topic for this exercise, I chose to focus on the countries involved and the protests that took place. This led me to create the following three slides (displayed above):
Slide 1: this slide focused on the physical location of the countries that played a large role in the Arab Spring. I used a map of the Middle East to show where these countries were located, and most importantly their proximity to one another.
Slide 2: this slide focused on the timeline of the initial Arab Spring (meaning the countries that played the largest role in the uprisings). I used a line graph to track when each country was first depicted as being a part of the Arab Spring.
Slide 3: this slide focused on the number of countries in the Arab World that experienced protests as a result of the Arab Spring, and of those countries which then went on to overthrow their regime. I decided to use a pie chart to represent this information in a visual way.
All data used in the charts and graphs was taken from The Guardian.
