Peer feedback via mobile devices: Is it useful? Is it trustworthy? Is it safe?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers

Abstract

This paper reports focus group findings from the first phase of a two-phase teaching development grant (TDG) project at a university in Hong Kong. The students joining the focus groups were enrolled in a course of a higher diploma programme in early childhood education. They were guided by their teacher to conduct peer feedback during a session of oral presentations on group projects. The peer feedback practice involved students writing feedback comments for peer groups on iPads or mobile phones and uploaded the peer feedback to a free e-learning platform called ‘Padlet’. The focus groups revealed some findings that reinforced existing evidence as well as new findings. Copyright © 2018 Advance HE.
