This StAIR teaches students about the dangers of cyberbullying, what causes it, and how they can responsibly deal with it. Students begin by learning basic background knowledge and progress into scenarios where they must provide victims and bullies with advice. The StAIR ends with students writing their thoughts in a 1 page blog posting and creating a list of tips for ways to handle cyberbullying responsibly.
What a relevant topic to cover with your StAIR. This is huge focus in schools today and this is a great tool for students to use. I enjoyed the audio introduction. You also provided users with great resources via the website and videos. I also liked the fact that on the quiz questions, if the user got it wrong, it took you back to review the points.
From my point of view, the only thing I questioned was having a 'bully' as the so-called host. While we are trying to avoid the thought of bullies in school, not sure if the bully should be the one telling us not to bully. Just me opinion, this does not affect the total message or thought of your StAIR. Also, for me it was very informational, but a lot of reading. For younger students, they may get lost in all the reading. I could see this being used for high school and/or middle school level students and an alternate version for the elementary students. This is a tool that could be used by many school districts. Great Job.
I had some issues clicking links that took you out of powerpoint. I had to re-open the file each time to gain access back to the presentation. This could be my version of powerpoint on my mac or some other technical issue.

This is a topic that I know is very relevant in many students' lives. I like that you included a portion where students were to write a blog post, as I'm sure they have much to say on the topic, be it personal experiences with bullying, or seeing it happen to a peer.
