The challenge of written feedback: Laura Adele Soracco | TELT | Scoop.it

When I was a student, I don’t think it ever crossed my mind how much work giving written feedback would be. I just gladly took it and read every word my teachers would add to my work.

As I learned, so will I teach.  Insights on providing feedback on writing from an ELT blogger working in China.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Thoughts on how the way student feedback is elicited affects its usefulness to the teacher from ELT blogger Michael Griffin. Includes links to other blog posts on this topic.  

 

[I'm trying to track down a post I read a few weeks ago where another ELT blogger used a system of coloured cards: one thing students thought the teacher should stop doing, one thing to keep doing, and one thing to consider.  Ring any bells for anyone?]

"Application disponible via le navigateur chrome qui permet de faire des commentaires audio sur tous les documents textes disponibles sur Google Drive"


Via Elena Pérez, Chris Jaeglin
Shona Whyte's insight:

Très simple à utiliser pour les googleheads - il faut être sur Chrome avec un gmail et G-Drive.

 

On rajoute le plug-in depuis le Chrome Web Store, et ensuite on peut ouvrir un document en mode Commentaires vocaux, ce qui permet de surligner une partie du texte et enregistrer de l'audio.  

 

Si on partage le document, un lien vers chaque piste audio apparaît sous le menu commentaires.  Pour les apprenants de langue, un enseignant peut donner la pronunciation d'un mot, par exemple, ou proposer un retour à l'oral plutôt qu'écrit.  

 

On peut imaginer d'autres activitiés collaboratives du moment que les apprenants installent le même plug-in sur leur machine.

Screencast Feedback for Essays on a Distance Learning MA in Professional Communication: An Action Research Project

Abstract
This action research explored the potential of audio-visual screencasting for assignment feedback on a distance learning (DL) course. A screencast is a combination of voice recording and screen capture, which can be played in any browser, like a video. Here it is used to capture a tutor’s editing and highlighting activities in a document, whilst simultaneously recording spoken feedback. Research suggests that audio-visual feedback may resolve some of the current problems with written feedback. A pilot study is reported which trialled screencasting for essay feedback on a master's level DL module at Sheffield Hallam University. Fourteen students participated and were randomly divided between two groups to receive either written or screencast feedback first. After receiving the first feedback type, students completed a short questionnaire online. The second type of feedback was then distributed to the students, who completed the same questionnaire for the second type of feedback. The results suggest that feedback is received more positively in the richer media of audiovisual screencasting and that this may encourage emotions more conducive to receiving and processing feedback and help to socialise students within the learning context by giving them a sense of belonging to the community. Simultaneous visual cues and explanations appear to help with understanding, and it is quicker to capture screencasts than it is to write feedback. However, preferences for written feedback were related to the holistic overview of a document, which could be scanned and revisited, and which was not confined to a linear delivery, nor time-limited. Audio-visualscreencasting will therefore only be adopted for formative feedback during modules, and will be structured with spoken overviews.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Learners preferred feedback via screencast.

Grammar Gamble - online quizzes

Grammar Gamble - online quizzes | TELT | Scoop.it

Discrete multiple choice questions on sentence-level grammar: choose the correct version of one sentence, or identify grammatical features, then decide how much you're willing to bet.  

 

The set I tested was probably suitable for lower-intermediate/intermediate learners.  Feedback is immediate, after each answer, but shows the correct answer without an explicit right or wrong evaluation. (You need to check your total score for this information.)

Decontextualised explicit grammar practice, but may have its place in your teaching and be more fun than usual.

High school social studies teacher Spiro Bolos guest blogs on Richard Byrnes' Free Technology for Teachers website on combining low-text Powerpoint slides with Voicethread or Google Apps comment options to make lectures less "one-way" by integrating "student voices."

 

In the foreign language classroom, this technique could be employed to improve interaction around student-created presentations also.
