History 390 Prezi on Prezi
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.
