A New Way For Receiving Verbal Feeback: VoiceThread

voicethread

Receiving feedback’s after doing a piece of work (project, assignment, work of art etc) is always essential and highly appreciated, as it helps us to improve. Sometimes a written recommendation/feedback may not be enough to express all the ideas/opinions and it may not be fully understood by the person reading it. Hence, most often we prefer a verbal form of feedback. VoiceThread, is a great tool allowing voice conversations to take place. Such discussions can be about a document, presentation, image and any other objects that the students may upload. People can access it from all over the world, at any time which suits them.

Individuals will leave their voice or text feedback as a comment, which can be accessed by the student anytime. There are various ways how this can be done, basically:

– Through a call

– Webcam

-By microphone

-By text

-Or File Upload to take active part in a conversation which might be taking place

This way the connection is more humanistic, it is very easy to learn and to use and quite powerful as it can hold very complex projects. After searching about this tool, I have concluded that it is a very interesting one and will surely help the student to understand better the feedback given.

    Giving feedback to your students is essential because they need to know in what they have to improve. It’s useless to give them a task and correcting it by giving a mark. This will only make those students who failed, feel bad. Feedback has to be effective and clearly explained with the main points stating what they got wrong, why they got it wrong and how they can improve it.
