Abstract 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.
