Students submit work, teachers grade work, we move on. Sound like what happens in classrooms? Mine neither. However, when we transitioned to remote learning I found myself falling into this cycle. The consequences were obvious immediately–student work deteriorated.
I quickly had to figure out–how could I incorporate the feedback cycle that was so effective in my classroom but online?
I made a few tweaks to ensure students were engaging with that feedback that I think you can learn from:
1. Find a way to see student work during class time
In my classroom, I use EdLight to collect images of student work in the moment. Students submit photos of their work using their Chromebooks towards the end of class. I prefer collecting work during class because I’m more likely to get students to submit than if I asked for them to submit it asynchronously. I think it’s so important to have a point in class where students show me their work so they are held accountable for the standard.
