ICT and Feedback Practices in the Lower-Secondary Foreign Language Classroom
Kjaergaard, Hanne Wacher
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v26 n2 p161-177 Apr 2017
A central part of language teachers' work consists in providing written corrective feedback for their students using well-known pen-and-paper practices, and they are often unsure of the return on their investment of time in this task. This article will describe the results of a survey among close to 300 Danish teachers of lower-secondary EFL aimed at uncovering their practices, not least the role of ICT in their work. The results indicate that they use ICT much less in this part of their work than in others, depriving both teachers and students of the benefits that technology can provide. The article also presents and discusses some of the advantages that may result from increasing the adequate uses of ICT in this aspect of (foreign) language teaching.
