Overview: Hattie defines feedback as ‘conceptualised as information provided by an agent (e.g., teacher, peer, book, parent, self, experience) regarding aspects of one’s performance or understanding.) Feedback is among the most critical influences on student learning. Where am I going? How am I going? Where to next? What are the current mechanisms available to teachers of providing meaningful, instantaneous feedback in a 21st century learning environment? In this workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to explore the use of student feedback tools including AirServer, Showbie etc and discuss the implications of providing quality in new forms of feedback (including voice recording).
