Since there is never enough time in a school day, educators must be smart about their communications. Whether sharing feedback with students or collaborating with colleagues near or far, Voxer brings personality and convenience to quick communication.
When sharing feedback with students, it’s challenging to deal with critical matters through writing. The tone is hard to set and can be misinterpreted by students reading written comments on their work. Instead, using voice to deliver that important feedback, students can hear the intonation of my voice and understand that although critical, there is concern and compassion. This concern helps students hear feedback and internalize it without shutting down. Also, they have the opportunity to listen to it more than once, which can be helpful.
