ALL London organises webinars for the MFL community and this webinar is open to all MFL teachers. We hope that you will like us and want to join!
Findings of an action research project regarding the provision of feedback as dialogue on Google Docs will be shared. The investigation took place with Year 8 students and two teachers with students learning the persuasive writing genre. The aim of the project was to determine to what extent the use of an online writing collaborative platform, such as Google Docs, when providing feedback could support the learning of diverse students. Findings suggest that the use of Google Docs when providing feedback has supported students’ learning of the persuasive writing genre. Furthermore, audio recorded feedback has allowed some literate cultural capital poor students to comprehend the feedback provided by their teachers.
Florence has been teaching Languages and Social Studies in secondary schools for 15 years. Her interest in education in general and equitable learning outcomes for students experiencing various disadvantaged situations in particular led her to undertake further studies. Formative assessment and Feedback, dialogic interactions between teachers and students, and literacy are some concerns of hers which she has been investigated during the Doctorate in Education She commenced in 2017.
