On the fifth day of Google, we will explore around with feedback in Google Docs.
One of the hardest parts with teachers transitioning to online work can be providing feedback electronically. I can see the point. It is really easy to write over text, underline, cross out, etc using paper and pencil. Edtechteam is trying to help teachers with the transition with a Chrome extension called CheckMark.
This extension has pre-determined, common remarks that teachers would be apt to include in a comment to a student. Rather than having the teacher taking the time to type the comment out, with the click of a button, a teacher is able to provide that same feedback without all of the extra clicks/keyboard hits necessary to make it happen.
How it Works:
- Get the chrome extension HERE
- Open up a Google Document you want to provide feedback
- Select the extension (it will turn green) indicating you want to use its features while in the document
- When you want to provide feedback, double click on a word, phrase, or statement. Then determine which comment you want to use.
