This presentation had good content for tech exposure for teachers. The assessment at the end was valid guage of learning absoption from the lesson.

Technical Remarks:

It was a bit "decorative" as can be the case with most PowerPoints presentations.

This is a great overview of Web 2.0 for teachers. I liked how it showed many different tools that are available and it gave practical ways to use them in the class. The presentation itself covers many tools of Web 2.0 and the slides are packed with useful material. I can see myself sharing this with other, less technological savy members of my staff to get them excited about the possibilities of technology as a means of engaging students.

Technical Remarks:

Worked fine, easy to download and run.

This is a great tuturiol on Web 2.0 tools for educators. It offers a variety of examples for educators to implement in their classroom, and it explains the examples nicely. It was informable and I learned about a couple of new tools that I wasn't familiar with. Although some of the slides had a lot of information to read. The only thing I would suggest is to change the background color. It was difficult for me to read in the upper right of the slide becaude of the darkness of the grey. But, overall nice work!

Technical Remarks:

It was easy to navigate around, all the buttons worked well and it took me to all the appropriate places. The only problem I had was that some of the links to quite a while to get to, but that might be my computer.

Great job!  I liked the presentation a lot.  It was very easy to move through and the flow made it easy to go faster where you understood and slower where you wanted to take more time.  the incorporation of how to videos kept me interested espcially in those Web 2.0 tools that I had not worked with before. The questions on the quizzes were great and kept you focused.

A suggestion for improvement would be to add more incentive to watch more of the videos, maybe by "selling" them to the audience.

Otherwise I thought it was great!


Technical Remarks:

Worked well, easy to download, a useful STAIR.

I want to link it to my literature circle blog for my kids to use.  Would that be OK?
