Guest post from Mote Ambassador Leader R. Erin Comninaki, Special Education Teacher and Instructional Coach.
Peer feedback has long been an invaluable part of the educational landscape, offering a dynamic and interactive approach to learning and assessment. However, the traditional methods of collecting and organizing feedback often need to be revised. This is where the unique combination of Mote and Doc Appender comes into play.
Mote is an innovative add-on that allows students to insert voice comments directly into Google Docs, Forms, and Slides. The ability to record voice comments brings nuance and emotion to feedback that written text alone cannot capture. Students can express themselves more freely, and the input becomes a rich tapestry of thoughts enhanced by tone and inflection.
Doc Appender is another exceptional add-on that works seamlessly with Google Forms. It takes responses from a Google Form and appends them to individual Google Docs. For educators, this means a streamlined process where each student can have a dedicated document that collects all their peer feedback over time.
When Mote and Doc Appender are used in tandem, the results are transformative:
Incorporating Mote and Doc Appender in your educational toolkit enriches the quality of feedback and radically simplifies its organization. The marriage of these two technologies provides an integrated, user-friendly platform that brings peer feedback into the 21st century.
By employing this dynamic duo, educators can foster an environment that values the depth and organization of peer feedback, setting the stage for more engaged and reflective learning.
