Internet-Mediated Corrective Feedback for Digital Natives
Saadat, Mahboobeh; Mehrpour, Saeed; Khajavi, Yaser
TESOL Journal, v7 n1 p233-245 Mar 2016
In this article, the authors examine different ways of using the Internet to receive feedback, and discuss advantages of language learners' use of the Internet to improve their own writing. In effect, the article elaborates on how Internet-mediated corrective feedback (IMCF) can be used as an efficient tool by language learners to become competent writers. The authors show how artifact-mediated options offered by the Internet such as web-based search engines and corpus databases can help language learners write more efficiently. In addition, forums on writing problems can serve as another source of feedback for the learners. Accordingly, the authors suggest that IMCF be incorporated in feedback taxonomies as a new category, and that language teachers should teach their students how to benefit from one of the most valuable assets of the 21st century--that is, the Internet--in order to enable learners to correct and revise their own writing.
