Virtual Study Abroad Project

The Virtual Study Abroad Project is based on authentic communication, captured on video, of unscripted everyday encounters during study abroad trips in German-speaking countries. The project shows students and instructors attending to everyday needs such as buying train tickets and shopping for cheese. Other segments include interviews with native speakers about their lives and interests. Materials from GoogleEarth are embedded in every video.

From Guilt to Google: Experimenting with Tech Tools to Improve Writing Feedback

From Guilt to Google: Experimenting with Tech Tools to Improve Writing Feedback | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

You know the feeling--that “gotta-get-this-grading-done” robotic trance. The blinding feeling of grading close to 180 essays. The guilt of balancing meaningful feedback without taking three weeks to do it.

 

I needed to change the tedious and difficult writing process in my classroom. So, I turned to Google tools.

 

Google scripts and add-ons to Google Drive drastically changed my approach to giving writing feedback. I have been able to quickly develop meaningful “writers workshops”, give individualized feedback throughout the writing process, and provide timely comments to a large student caseload.

 

With these tools (many of which are included in this list), students are placed in charge of their learning. They engage in meaningful self-reflection, highlight according to criteria, and use academic language to critique their own work. The shift is significant. With Google tools, I can provide ongoing feedback while my students showcase digital responsibility and revise throughout the writing process.

 

Here are my favorite Google tools that have changed the way I approach writing feedback.
