In the presentation above, Julie discusses some of the theoretical underpinnings of using different tech tools and strategies. In other words, why consider changing the way we provide feedback? Where do we start? What are some of the tools that we can begin to use to better identify our students' needs?
During her portion of the presentation, Angel discusses some strategies she's tried recently with Composition students both in terms of self-guided revision tools and in terms of feedback tools that can help address common instructor concerns about consistency and time. The issue of how to work with these tools within WayPoint is also covered.
Julie's resources spreadsheet provides direct links to some of the resources she's made use of that are mentioned in her presentation.
Angel's additional resources include some interesting recent articles on tech tools like auto-graders that are being used more frequently in classrooms as both a way to relieve some stress on instructors and to give students the ability to better self-direct in the writing process. Also, the differences in today's generation of students and the generation most educators are from are covered in one of the resources listed here (which is also where the in-person handout charts came from in the live session), helping us to better understand how to address those students' needs.
