As research and experience show, much of the feedback that teachers give students is not meaningfully integrated into the learning process, and when students aren’t using feedback to improve, teachers’ valuable time is wasted.

In this edWebinar, learn from Amy Mayer and Mark Schwartz how technology tools like Texthelp’s WriQ and Read&Write can save valuable time for teachers while increasing the effectiveness and transmission of feedback in the writing process for students. The presenters also spoke about tools available with the freemium versions of the products Read&Write and WriQ, as well as other free tools.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through higher education teachers, school and district leaders, curriculum directors, technology integrators, and reading specialists.
