I liked the specific breakdown of the definitions and the real life application of the material. I think your content and pedagogical decision making was beneficial, as you would intrdoduce mateiral and then quiz the reader over what they have read. However, I had trouble navigating the slides when running through the show. Honestly, I wish I could go back to look at the slides to answer the question. I truly have a short attention span and it takes me extra long to focus (I really relate to adhd kids), so I need time to work through questions by exploring content. I am sure so kids are the same way.

What a relevant subject.  I think this would have been a better project if it had better design prinviples applies to it.  Also i was able to continue when i got a incorrect answer.  However this was very effective i can use this for my college club.

This StAIR creation is high quality in many ways. I really liked the easy to read background and the sound effect that the “move to next slide button” created. It was catchy, and enhanced the overall theme of the StAIR. It was also helpful to the audience to have the additional information at the end of the presentation. There are a couple of things you may consider when thinking about how this could be best effective for all learners. Many students with learning disabilities get overwhelmed with a lot of new information presented at once. Because of this, it would be helpful to those students to possibly break up the informational slides from one, to two or even three slides. This would allow the students to focus on only a few abbreviations or pieces of information at once. In the same token, for some of the questions there are quite a few choices to answer. Although the scattered layout may look more “fun”, it is hard to differentiate between the choices and to focus on them. You may wish to eliminate some choices and/or line them up. Last suggestion I have would be to label the additional resources. As a learner, I am not sure if I would like additional information or not because I don’t know what the extra links and video pertain to. This StAIR project took me approximately 5 – 10 minutes to review.
