Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments

Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

Teachers sometimes hesitate to assign writing tasks because of the correction work it creates. However, students benefit from frequent writing practice and the corrective feedback they receive. One solution is for teachers to work longer hours. Another is to find ways to integrate automatic corrective feedback into second language pedagogy.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 15, 1:54 PM

We'd think know what they need to know about learning. But teachers seek professional development for reasons other than hanging out with their bffs. They want to refresh their learning about learning, to learn new strategies, to learn about new research, and to have their instincts affirmed. These fundamentals do much of that.

Pearson Australia's curator insight, February 15, 4:53 PM

I think this is a great post for Academy. I think I could probably write some content around classroom learning and the practice of telling children why they are learning what they are learning.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, February 18, 8:16 AM

The fundamentals listed in this article are easy to do. I suggest trying to incorporate 1 or 2 a month Into your teaching.

How Writing a Learning Journal Can Increase Critical Thinking Skills | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it
Remember reflection? That’s something we used to do occasionally before we all became addicted to checking our Web-enabled devices every few minutes for our much-needed digital data fixes. Prior to the mobile revolution, people could at times be seen staring off into space, just thinking. If you were to spot someone doing that today, you’d …

Um artigo bastante pertinente que nos remete para uma importante reflexão (Writing and keeping journals. A guide for educators and social practitioners)  sobre os benefícios associados à criação de um jornal, independentemente do propósito para o qual seja criado...

 

According to the American Library Association, by 2020, information on the Internet will be doubling every 15 minutes. Consuming information without taking the time to reflect is bad for the development of critical thinking skills. Without reflection, we become locked in a pattern of remembering and communicating information without taking the time to assess whether the information is true, utter garbage, or a valuable missing piece in a puzzle.[...]


Mark Smith

A journal is also a tool for self-discovery, an aid to concentration, a mirror for the soul, a place to generate and capture ideas, a safety valve for the emotions, a training ground for the writer, and a good friend and confidant. (op. cit.)
