How to Use Google Drive for Descriptive Feedback Using Sharing Options - TapintoTeenMinds

How to Use Google Drive for Descriptive Feedback Using Sharing Options - TapintoTeenMinds | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

"The consistent and effective use of Descriptive feedback in classrooms has become a popular strategy due to its positive influence on student learning. Based on the research of John Hattie, my colleague, Jason Lynn has given me an in-depth look at Hattie’s work and how we can use it in the classroom.

 

Although the research suggests that providing students with descriptive feedback has the largest influence on student learning, it can be difficult for teachers to find more time to provide this meaningful assessment as learning and assessment for learning tool with regularity."

This quick video, with written steps as well, shows how to make a separate document to comment on student work. I'm not sure why you need a separate document. Couldn't you write the comments on the original student document?

A good start... and better than no descriptive feedback at all.

Fernando Ortiz's curator insight, February 6, 2014 2:49 AM

This is great for teachers/professors to help them connect more with their students. As a student, majority of the web tools were introduced to me and were actually very helpful. However, not many teachers/professors know or do not prefer them; my assumptions to this is that the web tools were introduced to me by 3 out of all the past teachers I had.
