Recome­nda­tions to give proper feedback to our students.
When we give feedback, we usually say: good?, all right, okay, etc. or we use the same answer of the student what with a intonation that recall the student that it is incorrect. These types of feedback are the most common, but not always the most effect­ives.
To give proper feedback we have to be aware of the student we are giving feedback. We need to monitor our students and develop the feedback into an opporunity of learning. We don´t want our students to feel ashamed by the mistakes or we do not want to make them feel like a knows everyt­hing. We have to be careful to keep that thin line while giving feedback.
