Discussion for StAIR 6 Keys to Collaboration
Jason Murray (Teacher (K-12))
This StAIR is loaded with terms and best practices when collaborating as a group. I am having trouble determining the appropriate grade level for this. Lots of big words and elaborate questions. This could be used to launch the concept of collaboration in the classroom. Easy to use, and application should be easy to implement. I might consider shortening up the first few slides and getting more to the point of the later slides.
The presentation flows well, some slides are timed, some are click-response driven. Good use of colors and easy to navigate. Good technical work.

You included great information about collaboration. The video at the beginning was really interesting! I liked that you included checks after each section. One thing I think you could improve was making it so there wasn't so much reading to obtain the information. While I am very interested in the idea of collaboration and making it work better in my classroom, the information was a little dry and I lost interest after a little while. Maybe give more examples and shorten the information to bullet the main points.
It was a little confusing at times to get from one section to the next. If you answered a question wrong, for example, I wasn't sure at first which button would take me back to the questions. There was no option to go directly back to the questions, only back to the information.

Very detailed. Seems a bit simple for adults, but I like the fact that there are quizzes along the way of learning. It ensures that the audience is paying attention and following along. The "help" buttons also are a great idea. I just wish the "home" button took us to a table of contents so we could go back and review certain concepts if we thought we needed to do so.
