Can you hear me now? Personalizing the feedback experience. We leave feedback for our students, but do they read it or even understand it? Moreover, do they use that feedback to revise the work they've submitted? What if the feedback was an actual conversation? According to the Journal of Educational Psychology, the maximum depth of learning occurs with explanatory feedback versus correct answer feedback (Butler, Godbole & Marsh, 2012). In this study, the learning students attained was measured in three areas: recognition, recall, and application. Results demonstrated that correct answer and explanatory feedback both provided the recall level of learning among students. However, explanation feedback enabled learners to better comprehend the concepts, and facilitate deeper comprehension by being able to apply the knowledge to new contexts. This session will review ways to use technology tools to facilitate a digital conversation with students, focused on quick and efficient ways to provide personalized explanatory feedback via audio.
