Providing students with feedback

Using tech!

The tools

  • Smore
  • Screencast o matic
  • Remind


I like to use smore to send out to my students a brief run down of the class for the next week. In this digital newsletter of sorts I send out information and projects we completed during the week and what to look ahead to for the week to come. Students enjoy the update and review.

Screen cast o matic

Is a great free screen capture tool. You can create 15 minute videos and share or download them. I liked using this tool to give my students video feedback on their digital portfolios. It is easy to use and easy to share.

Remind is a 2 way communication tool that you can use to "remind" your students about events, assignments, test or quizzes. It is great because the students don't know your phone number and you don't know their number either! GENIUS! This is a great tool to keep you and your students on the same page and on top of assignments. I use this tool to send out short 140 character messages about:
  • Reminders about class
  • Assignments
  • Due dates
  • Bonus opportunties

The tutorial below was created by one of my students. He walks through how to create a teacher account and how to create a student account.
