This stand alone kiosk would be great for any one who wants to learn about Gas Laws. I enjoyed how it started out with music playing in the beginning of the activity. This is a great instrinsic motivator and will definitely get students excited to learn. There are also many sounds that appear to be from movies that students will also enjoy! I thought that this presentation was supported with many real world scenarios. Students were expected to create their own tool after learning about the Gas Laws and apply it to what they just learned. I like the idea having hands-on activities within this experience as well. I think that this activity includes many forms of differentiated instruction. It includes videos, questions, an engaging activity and a lesson they need to complete on a Wiki site. I believe that this Kiosk would be a great way to futher learning about Gas Laws to any students at that level.

Technical Remarks:

A few technical issues that I experienced during my time viewing this kiosk was a broken link and continuing to the next slide. When moving throughout the kiosk, I had to make sure that my mouse was in a specific spot in order to click the the objects I wanted in order to move on. Another problem I ran into was being unable to access the Wiki link. I tried the link on two different computers and still could not access it. Maybe it was my internet connection or a glitch on my end, but I wish I was able to view the wiki! Overall, I really enjoyed this presentation!

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes - reviewed on two different computers
