One of my biggest struggles is giving students regular feedback on their writing. I am able to look at their writing on a fairly regular basis, but getting that feedback to them is hard. If I have to type it out it takes hours. If I have to meet with them individually to give them the feedback, it takes days.
Then it hit me - could I send them voice feedback somehow - record my voice giving them quick feedback on their writing (probably 30-60 seconds worth). Then they could listen and use the feedback as they write more.
I work with 4th graders, so I think voice feedback would not only be cool, but might be more effective than written feedback.
Any ideas for an easy way to do this? What technologies could I use? I need a system to organize this easily so that students can "pick up" their message.
