Web conferencing and peer feedback

Kevin Garrison

Abstract:

This activity utilizes Web conferencing in a small (10–25 student) traditional face-to-face classroom to facilitate the peer review and peer feedback process. Using a Web conferencing tool, the instructor creates a virtual meeting place, invites the students to the online room, and then shares a student’s rough draft of an assignment on the Web conference’s whiteboard. The students then, in a chat room, offer both positive and critical feedback to the author of the document. This format allows students to share their ideas in an online social medium while learning a crucial component of writing: revision, based on audience feedback
