    Beskrivelse

    The project at hand focuses on the use of technology for providing
    written corrective feedback to Danish 8th-grade students of EFL. My
    focus is on teachers’ thinking and practices and how it may be
    affected by the introduction of a specific tool for giving feedback.
    The questions the study seeks to answer are:
    • In what ways do teacher beliefs and practices change when
    teachers are involved in an intervention which (1) aims to update
    their knowledge concerning feedback (2) introduces interactive,
    technology-mediated feedback?
    • How are student attitudes and practices influenced?
    The study uses a variety of methods to answer these:
    questionnaires, interviews, sound recordings, screen recordings,
    and document study. The intervention involving technology was
    carried out over eight months at three schools (three teachers,
    three classes). The project will be presented along with some
    preliminary results concerning teacher practices, just as problematic
    aspects will be presented for discussion.
