Online feedback among peers who know one another is effective. Studies have shown that students can be more comfortable with and adept at critiquing and editing written work if it is exchanged over a computer network with students they know. According to Hattie and Timperley, “…feedback is information with which a learner can confirm, add to, overwrite, tune or restructure.’ With an abundance of cheaper tablets, laptops and phones, the ‘student’ has never been more connected. Teachers have a mandate to make use of this technology to enhance feedback for all learners.

This session looks at the theory of feedback and how technology can provide quality feedback in a quick and meaningful way. It demonstrates ways that technology can be used to enhance feedback, providing students with immediate feedback that can be saved, reflected upon and used as future reference when needed."

This presentation will demonstrate the use of various programs including: Wikis, Blogs, Voicethread, Google Apps, Podcasts/Vodcast, Quia as well as various iPad applications. It will also discuss a global project between a class from Australia and the United States and show how students communicated and provided feedback throughout the task.
