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.

Picture creating your own async classroom and having the abilty to have different instructor contribute to the lessons. Very cool functions that are easy to use. Well Done Apple!

The addition of discussions moves iTunesU from an elaborate textbook to something that involves collaboration - a good move. Pity it's only for private courses.

Oxford University Press Launches e-books for Learning English Through Microsoft’s Office 365 | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Oxford, Oxfordshire (PRWEB UK) 9 July 2014 -- Oxford University Press has collaborated with Microsoft to make its enhanced e-books solution, Oxford Learner’s Bookshelf, available through Office 365, a SharePoint app. The app transforms Oxford’s coursebooks and Readers for learning English into smart digital books with a balance of interactivity that encourages students to study independently at home, and tools that help teachers to engage students in the classroom.

A very interesting development from Oxford University Press. If you want to use the books on your iPad, it seems you have to first download the "Oxford Learning Bookshelf" app (free: https://itunes.apple.com/app/oxfordlearnersbookshelf/id617832312) and then within in the app you can get the books. Some books appear to be available only for institutions, and as yet I can't find a way to be able to evaluate them.
