This resource aims to guide students through building the necessary skills to be successful researchers using proper formatting skills. It also gives students the opportunity to use digital storytelling technology. I appreciate that this resource presents the content using visuals and videos; thus, it caters to different learning styles. I also like that it supports student learning with instant feedback after each part of the lesson. The objectives of the lesson could be a bit clearer. This would help to connect the slides around the same theme and to create continuity to help the slides flow smoothly from one to the next.



Technical Remarks:

The question answer section on the first slide does not go to that section in the resource. Also, the next button on the slides for questions 1, 2, and 3 are linked to “Congratulations” feedback. These questions may be linked to the next question or students may not be allowed to see the next question without answering the question at hand. Other than these, this resource is easy to use.

This lesson gives students the opportunity to learn and use digital storytelling technology. The purpose and expectations for this assignment could be a bit more clear, however, the background/supporting information about sources is great and really informative.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use -- graphics are age appropriate.
