Presentation Title/Description: No code: Written feedback and error correction in the language classroom
Writing in a foriegn language is difficult and a paper returned full of corrections can be demotivating. This session will look at ways to go beyond just correcting mistakes by making feedback content-focused and error correction a more student-centred activity. We will look at ways to do this using technology as well as with just a board and marker.
