nicolaperry's insight:

Some of these would really help! It seems strange, when you think about it, that English invents new words and expressions all the time but never neew punctuation.

Look up multiple words quickly. Simply copy and paste a list with any delimeter. Definitions/synonyms are immediately available for viewing, emailing, or downloading.

Via Shona Whyte
nicolaperry's insight:

I tried a quick random list of words and the definitions seemed pretty good but not for lower level learners. I couldn't find any information about which dictionary they have used. 

 

It's quick, though, so could be useful in class for instant results and to use for word games.

Providing Feedback | Researched-Based Strategies | Focus on Effectiveness

Providing Feedback | Researched-Based Strategies | Focus on Effectiveness | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

Providing the right kind of feedback to students can make a significant difference in their achievement. There are two key considerations. First, feedback that improves learning is responsive to specific aspects of student work, such as test or homework answers, and provides specific and related suggestions. There needs to be a strong link between the teacher comment and the student's answer, and it must be instructive. This kind of feedback extends the opportunity to teach by alleviating misunderstanding and reinforcing learning. Second, the feedback must be timely. If students receive feedback no more than a day after a test or homework assignment has been turned in, it will increase the window of opportunity for learning. Feedback is a research-based strategy that teachers, and students, can practice to improve their success.

systerwoody's comment, February 4, 2013 2:30 PM
The challenge is in providing timely feedback spread across 3-4 courses with 25+ students each. Nearly impossible with writing intensive programs, which is a majority of doctoral programs. Sink or swim!

By design this model emphasizes the role of play, diverse digital and physical media, and a designed interdependence between communities and schools.
