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

Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments | Tools for Teachers & Learners | 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.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This looks like a great tool to support the marking of written work and give students detailed and supportive feedback which they can actually take forward.Worth watching the introductory video: http://youtu.be/Wu0TMqPfW_0
