Using Audio Feedback to Improve Student Writing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Audio feedback gives teachers an adaptable and meaningful alternative to pen and paper comments. It's not merely a tech substitute for the tactile. Students annotate their essays in response to what they hear in the feedback, shifting the ownership of revision from teacher to writer. The feedback teachers prepare for students is overwhelming due to the demands of the curriculum and assessment. Audio feedback is a way to engineer this conferencing--or simulate it--with students. They can hear the tone in a teacher's voice and students can listen again and again until they get it right, and they are far more likely to fix their mistakes with audio feedback. It's not nearly as time consuming as it might seem. Once you have a system in place it is often faster--and certainly more efficient--than written comments.
