I thought this was an overall excellent StAIR on bullying and cyberbullying. The information was presented in a very easy to read and understandable manner. The organization of the text and the vocabulary was uniform throughout. There was a lot of great information in general about methods in avoiding bullying and cyberbullying that could really give victims of bullying options in dealing with their problems. Bullying is always a problem in schools no matter the age of the students, so giving out valuable information like in this powerpoint is extremely important. Cyberbullying is the newest and most dfficult form of bullying to stop, so bringing attention to it as an issue is extremely important and is well presented in this StAIR. Technically, the StAIR is quite well done. The questions and answers sections make sure that the student is paying attention consistently. I especially liked the way that the presentation would take you back to the page where the information was contained if you missed a question. I did notice that a few of the buttons didn't work in the question section. I knew the correct answer on one slide, but the button didn't work so I had no choice but to answer incorrectly to go onto the next slide. Also, I wasn't exactly sure what the sound buttons were for. I initially thought they were spoken words to the slides, but when I clicked on them nothing really happened. These are just nitpicks to an overall pretty good StAIR. I would definitely use this in an anti-bullying lecture.
