A new app available within Google Drive allows for the insertion of Voice Comments into Google Docs. The app is free and easy to use. The tutorial below will demonstrate how to install it and begin using it.
This tool allows teachers to provide specific feedback to students regarding their writing using verbal expression. It can also be used for students to provide peer review. In the past I have connected my students with other students around the world to conduct peer review of writing using the comments features. This allows the students to gain the benefits of expressive verbal language. It's also really cool!
