Amazing! I love that the students can interact and get feedback from this PowerPoint. They can work at their own pace and review concepts even through online resources or supplemental questions/explanations. This is a great resource for your students. Thanks so much for sharing! The only thing that I would change would be the timing of the animations; the letters don't seem to be appearing quickly enough. Though, I am not an elementary teacher and am not sure if this is a strategy to ensure that the students read each sentence completely before moving on; if it is, then it works!

I really liked your presentation.  I especially enjoyed the fact that if a student is still confused, they are linked straight to a video to explain it a different way.  Fantastic!  

Technical Remarks:

Great.  The only thing that I would suggest is to speed up the animations a little.  Big deal though. . . it gets the point across just fine .

The StAIR is very easy to follow and the flow is great.  Working with the different scenarios gives students an opportunity to check their skills. Each of the steps were well broken down and provided a good depth of information. I believe the instructional strategies for the reviews and practices will allow the students to better understand this project. Sometimes the flow of the document was interrupted by the I accidentally clicked on the page away from the button which forward the page. I don’t know how to fix this, but it would be an improvement to only let the links move the pages. Your use of color, fonts, and animation helped to meet UDL guidelines.  I can only suggest one more improvement because this project is amazing, but that would be to add an option to use text to speck for the student that needs help reading.  Otherwise awesome job. I spent about 15 minutes viewing this project and have to say it was very informative.

Technical Remarks:

Nice use of technology.  Animation, buttons, excellent

      This StAIR is easy to follow and provides good information. To work with the multiple scenarios gave me an opportunity to check my skills. Each of the steps were well broken down and provided a good depth of information. I really think the instructional strategies for the reviews and practices allowed me to better understand this StAIR. Sometimes the flow of the document was interrupted by the accidental clicks which forward the page. It would be nice if only the links moved the document forward. Regarding Assistive Technology A.T., I like the use of color and font, it makes it easier for those with visual problems. The only thing I would like to be different is to have some auditory representation during the presentation.

Technical Remarks:

The page is active and can throuw the flow of sink. It would be nice if only the links worked.
