Theme: Collaborative Learning through Technology

Length: 45 Minutes

Target Audience: 7-12 Teachers who use student-centered approaches like project-based, challenge-based, or inquiry-based learning

Peer feedback is an age-old teaching approach shown to boost learning outcomes and improve student work. Peer review is now unnecessarily difficult in modern “digital” classrooms. Digital content, digital workflows, and other complications that arise in teaching with technology make this once simple task too cumbersome and time-consuming for many teachers. As a result, teachers opt out of engaging students in this highly effective instructional approach.

Learn how easy it is to implement this evidence-based instructional practice into your classrooms with several different technology tools. Teachers who use student-centered approaches like project- or inquiry-based learning will be especially interested in learning how the technology-based peer feedback process creates a written record of student learning over time.

Participants will explore the use of technology-based peer feedback within face-to-face, blended, and online learning environments. You will walk away with the practical knowledge of how to set-up a peer feedback process that:

  • Facilitates quality feedback and work outcomes
  • Promotes self-reflection and metacognition
  • Provides formative assessment data you can use to guide planning, intervention and enrichment strategies, and instruction
  • Frees the peer feedback process from constraints of time and space by enabling anytime, anywhere peer feedback from Internet-enabled devices.
