Student Feedback: Exemplars / Writing Conferences / Student Generated Tutorials
New to 5th Grade this year Betsy Sise is already leading and sharing out how she uses a Chrome Extension called SnagIt to give student feedback. She was initially introduced to SnagIt at the Boulder Google Summit this past fall and started using SnagIt to create video tutorials for directions, how to's and student exemplars. After sharing this with the Littleton Inspired Writing Cohort and having conversations with other teachers in this cohort she moved from tutorials and student exemplars to student writing conferences.

Betsy uses SnagIt videos for her advanced students to set goals and guide their work so they can self-pace and continue to grow. She uses SnagIt with her struggling students by recording her sit down writing conference with them. This allows students to go back and listen to the conference again, remember the focus area and review their goal for the writing piece.
Betsy is already thinking ahead of these great practices and is providing students voice by giving them the opportunity to lead by creating their own video tutorials on their topic of choice.
