Giving Student Feedback with Google Docs

I recently attended a high school TIP Session titled "Google Documents: Providing Efficient and Effective Feedback," presented by Sean DuBe'. In his presentation, Sean shared how Google Docs can be used to provide feedback and help students achieve standards, goals, and expectations. Students' (9th graders) average essay grades have moved from C+ (79.4%) to B average (83.5%) after a year of implementing feedback on Google Docs.
 
In his presentation, Sean listed several benefits of providing feedback with Google Docs for both teachers and students. For example, teachers can add comments, links, images, and videos to supplement learning, and provide the feedback much faster than handwritten comments. Students can use the feedback immediately and respond to the teacher's comments.
