I Hadn’t Thought of That! Guidelines for Providing Online Feedback That Motivates Students to Learn

What's Inside

You can provide instructional, performance-based feedback to students using digital communication tools—without losing the explicit guidance provided by face-to-face interactions. Lapp, Wolsey, and Ganz share fantastic strategies for tapping into students' savvy as communication technologists, while simultaneously developing their bases of knowledge. This column is packed with suggestions for using visual and audio feedback tools, such as screen capture software, animated avatars, digital video, and podcasts, as well as websites such as VoiceThread, Vimeo, SchoolTube, and Google Docs.
