Desmos JUST released a new feature that give teachers the ability to give feedback to students INSIDE Desmos activity builder! This will be such a helpful feature now that we cannot interact with our students in person, and especially for classes that are only able to do asynchronous distance learning.
** Your students MUST be signed in to the activity, with either with a Google or Desmos account, to be able to go BACK into an activity and read the feedback. **
Yes! It works on previous activities! Just today I went into our last activity and added some feedback for students to look at on our first day back. I figured it would be a great way to review, and ease into distance learning.
The feedback is very easy for students to access, as it puts all of the feedback you give them in one place, and they can click to go directly to the screen.
1. You have to TURN on the feedback option in Desmos Labs. Click on your name in the top right corner > Desmos Labs. Then check all the Labs you would like to have.
2. Once in an activity, click the text box at the top of the screen to leave feedback.
3. ALL of the feedback is in one convenient place for your students. And they can just click on the “Go to screen 3” to look at the screen or edit their work.
I am planning on putting a Feedback screen at the end of each activity where students can ask questions once they finish an activity. I am so excited to be able to answer my students questions, right in the activity!
Thanks Desmos! 💚
