Providing Feedback in a Technology-Mediated Environment
Teach Writing More Effectively
Success in the teaching of writing rests in part on at least three key factors:
- Showing students the necessary skills and techniques for improving their writing,
- Encouraging them to take ownership of their growth as writers
- Cultivating a healthy rapport between teachers and students that supports individual writing growth.
Instructional technology that supports each of these factors can go a long way toward achieving success in the teaching of writing.
Learn more about available instructional technologies for teaching writing effectively as William Beasley, Ed.D., and Brian Harper, Ph.D., present insights and methods to enable you to help students improve their writing and enrich learning.
In this content-rich, 90-minute seminar, you will:
- Review the full range of feedback options available in Microsoft Word, including audio possibilities.
- Be able to base decisions for providing student feedback on research data grounded in theory.
- Become more aware of the interaction between different forms of feedback and commonly used hardware and software.
- Understand the distinction between feedback provided internal to student work and feedback provided externally.
- Be able to compose and deliver feedback on student written work that is appropriate to specific instructional goals.
In addition, you’ll learn about the results of preliminary research comparing written and audio feedback regarding students’ perceptions of the learning climate they experienced, and you’ll receive a series of “how to” handouts about specific technologies covered.
