Snapshot: High-achieving students already know how important feedback is to learning as much as possible. They are engaged learners always looking for feedback from any sector, whether it’s from teachers, or comparing themselves with their peers or from self-assessment tools. Imagine if all your students could benefit from the power of feedback in increasing learning without placing undue demands on teachers.
In this webinar, Jane Pollock shows you how you can vastly increase the amount of feedback students are getting in class with simple strategies that any teacher can quickly learn to use. It’s not only teachers who should be providing feedback. Students can benefit from feedback from their peers and from self-monitoring their own progress toward clearly defined goals.
Jane provides many strategies and ideas for creating a culture of feedback in the classroom to help engage and motivate more of your students.
