I had some students choose their own questions from a list I provided so that they would think more deeply about their novels. Students read novels in groups, and then used these questions to have discussions. The students then proceeded to write answers in their OneNote notebooks that I provided them with the OneNote notebook Class Creator.
Two-thirds of my students... have a personal device, be it a parent's old laptop, a small android tablet, or an iPad. The rest use the class computer, or do the assignment on paper in point form, and enter it online when they go home where they have a computer.
I don't tell them their mark in the recording, but keep their mark in my mark book. when the student wants to know the mark, they have to approach me, and tell me the feedback I gave them in order to know their mark. I have learned that kids only pay close attention to the written feedback if they are negatively surprised by the mark they receive. Often students need to go back and listen again to my feedback, and this has improved their reading and writing skills.
If students are using OneNote online, they need to right-click on the audio file, download, and then playback the comment.
If they are opening their OneNote notebook in a desktop program or app, they should be able to play it back by clicking on the play button to the left of the recording.
My students have told me they like having personal messages recorded into their homework, and it allows me to provide better feedback, closer to the time the student finishes their work. It saves me time, a lot of effort, and I don't carry papers home with me to mark. Try it yourself!
