Thanks for these great tips. I have been trying to find some creative technological ideas to incorporate in my Business class. I have discovered Evernote and Google Docs are really effective after reading your post. I am going to try to use Screencasts and Livescribe Pen. Thanks again for the great tips for using tech tools to provide timely feedback.

Socrative is a great app to get information from students in real time. I also use Google forms on my iPad to take quick notes and write feedback quickly.

Check out my blog to learn about how I use technology (and iPads!) in the classroom.

Thanks Mary Beth for these practical and easy tips. I'm particularly interested in using screencasts...great idea! I have two more suggestions. Like you, I often use the comment features in Google Docs to leave copious feedback. When I want to streamline, however, I mark the first ten grammar errors using the comments. I only write "error 1, error 2, etc." until I get to ten. The students label these errors by replying to my original comment. I receive an automatic email and easily track the accuracy of their evaluation of their own mistakes.

Second, using MACROS in Word can be a huge time-saver, and they help me create more efficient, accurate feedback. I've recently written my own blog post about how I use Macros: http://wp.me/p1Nk8W-2N. Can't wait until Google Docs supports macros as well.
