Goals

Goals: Improving the students writing skills

Methods

Methods: By using google drive we can share documents between students and students but also between students and teachers. Doing that we can develop peer assessments skill. The students can work in the same text from different computers at the same time and that allows them to get feedback and feedforward from their classmates.

 

Materials

Google Drive

Assessment

In the same way, the teacher can give the students feedforward during work, and the formative assessment demands that feedback are given as soon as possible if we want students to use it. One of the biggest gains by using shared documents is the immediate and precise feedback the student can get during work.

ICT

Before we used google drive the students didn’t use our feedback as much to improve their writing. Now we can see that their creative and writing are getting better and they develop their texts.
