ICT and Feedback Practices in the Lower-Secondary Foreign Language Classroom

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review


A central part of language teachers’ work consists in providing
written corrective feedback for their students using wellknown
pen-and-paper practices, and they are often unsure of
the return on their investment of time in this task. This article
will describe the results of a survey among close to 300 Danish
teachers of lower-secondary EFL aimed at uncovering
their practices, not least the role of ICT in their work. The results
indicate that they use ICT much less in this part of their
work than in others, depriving both teachers and students
of the benefits that technology can provide. The article also
presents and discusses some of the advantages that may result
from increasing the adequate uses of ICT in this aspect of
(foreign) language teaching.
