Once again, Google products is here to make our classrooms and classes more interesting than never before.
When I started teaching, I found myself asking students to write an e-mail in a sheet of paper as homework and I didn't understand why they should do so when e-mails do exist and my students -being digital natives- master the use of technology. So, I just told them to actually send their e-mails.
They did, but I was then in a new problem: feedback? I decided to record it and send them the link to check their productions. They did check and enjoy the experience.
CONS: time to produce each video.
Afterwards, I found a new -and much better- option to provide feedback. Students create a Google Doc with their productions and, then, I just add comments where I consider necessary. It saves time and it is user-friendly.
