Student Writing Feedback: Voice Comments

Voice Comments in Google Chrome is a fast and easy way to provide feedback on student writing. Use Google Drive to create the documents, share with the teacher, and then the teacher can provide verbal annotations as they read the paper....pretty cool Google! Here is what Beth Holland & Tracy Sockalosky over at Edudemic had to say about this new Chrome Extension:
What if your students could hear your thoughts as you read their work and provided input? With Voice Comments, a Chrome app that works with Google Docs, that is now possible.
While some students may prefer to read your annotations, others may benefit from more of a dialog. Consider the value of having students leave Voice Comments during peer review. Google docs makes it easy to leave text comments throughout the process; however, those remarks do not include tone of voice or inflection. With Voice Comments, students can receive feedback with another dimension as well as with the modality that best fits their learning needs.
