Discussion for Art Element Shape (STAIR/Power Point Presentation)
Iman Zaatari (Teacher (K-12))
This STAIR project demonstrates a great job in introducing the shapes and its different kinds. The presentation clearly introduced, explained and practiced the concept very well. It was very well organized and appropriate for lower elementary grades. Fonts, slide layout, images, animation, and transitions were easy to view and read. The videos were not working. On the video slides, there were text included and the video but there was no audio. It might be a good idea to include audio for those as well since the presentation is for young students. It would also be a good idea to have audio on the first and last slide. In addition, it would be useful to explain how to go from one slide to another or what to do when you got a correct or incorrect answer. Adding audio might help in explaining the process at the beginning of each section. It would be helpful to have some sort of explanation when getting the wrong answer. Overall, it is a great presentation and I am sure that your students will enjoy working through it.

This StAIR is a great resource for art educators. This stand alone instructional resource does an excellent job introducing the art element, shape. Students usually know what shapes are. If you ask them they can tell you about a square or triangle, this presentation introduces shapes to students in the art perspective. The presentation is very age appropriate, and well designed. The students will have very little problem if any at all navigating through the PowerPoint. The author has offered audio for all text for auditory learners, which also reinforces word recognition when working with 1st and 2nd grade students. The presentation offers immediate feedback to students when testing their knowledge.
Video didn't work. I wasn't able to get my videos to work either, I ended up including external links instead of trying to embed them.
