This was a great STAIR for teaching students concepts about lights and mirrors. Working through the project it provided positive feedback for students who answered questions correctly and review points for students who answered questions incorrectly. The addition of a youtube video was a great resource to engage the students before reviewing more material. Real-life examples provided meaningful learning. Having the students create a note sheet at the beginning is a great way to help them focus throughout the presentation.

Technical Remarks:

The only technical issue I had was trying to open the presentation on my mac with OpenOffice. The file format didn't transfer correctly on my computer, but when opening the document on another computer with PowerPoint I did not have an issue. It may have just been my settings that were causing the problems.

This is a wonderful Stand Alone Resource for students learning about mirrors.  It was very easy to use and navigate with great images and information was clearly thought out and portrayed.  The use of picture and word-based instruction was very nice (The T-Shart slide stood out).  Another strength was the use of the original learning material reposted on the slide that was displayed after the user input the incorrect answer during the quiz.

One method that could be used to make every user accessible to the content would be to offer some sort of text to speech function, such as recording your voice for each slide reading the text. 

Technical Remarks:

It was very easy to use the material.  It was glitch free
