Facilitating Feedback using iPads with Classroom/Classwork

I found tech needed to enhance my pedagogical beliefs around feedback rather than compromising my established culture by playing with the latest thing.

Realistically I use iPads in my classroom in 3 ways:

1. Getting the work - so students are accessing the work in a time effective manner.

2. Creating the work - ensuring tasks are specific and promote creativity.

3. And now I wanted complete the work flow cycle by linking feedback loop. I have found this to be the most challenging when utilising iPads with my Year 3s. I noticed that last year when we started using 1:1 ipads I found I was missing those ah ha and celebration moments. So I thought how can I do this better...

First Strategy is Screen Mirroring with Classroom - Yes Classroom is a great tool to lock iPads but it helps me in three main ways: ACP

Accountability is key - as my students say "it puts pressure on." I can see the work flow in live time allowing me to judge how clear my instructions have been and where help needs to be given.

Check in - this is my favourite as i get to see and celebrate students work - selecting students, projecting their learning to the screen and sharing with their peers how they got the answer.

Plenary - Towards the end of lessons, screen mirroring helps me work through a plenary by connecting to the Learning Intentions. This again links back to building a feedback culture.

Strategy two - Shared keynotes through classwork: I was nervous that classwork somewhat slowed the marking process and I was not willing to sit at my desk becoming frustrated with it's clunkiness.

I was inspired at the thought of having a collaborative space for peer to peer feedback I set up a shared student keynote through classwork. Here students were able to use a learning intention checklist to reflect and provide each other with feedback.

Here is an example of completed work - here I was able to clearly see the learning intentions and explanations.

Thanks for sharing!

Have you considered using solutions such as Showbie? It's designed to help close that feedback loop, giving lots of tools for assessment.
