Eliciting Students’ Voices through Screencast-Assisted “Feedback on Feedback”

María Fernández-Toro, Concha Furnborough, The European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning (EURODL), Dec 08, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is such a natural application of technology, but I do not recall having seen it discussed before. "Despite its obvious importance, research has suggested that students do not always engage with their tutors’ assignment feedback. This paper focuses on a new approach to examining student responses to feedback received." The idea is to use Jung to record students responses to feedback on their paper. The responses are then analyzed bu the instructional team. Sometimes this works, but sometimes the students aren't able to articulate their responses effectively. "A common problem is that there is often a mismatch between the students’ needs and expectations on the one hand, and the tutors’ assumptions and practices." But, "the fact that recordings were submitted at all shows that the method is potentially viable." From a special issue of EURODL, Best of EDEN 2013-14. Image: EtekArts.
