The Importance of Feedback in Contemporary Education
Keywords:Method, feedback, informatics, lesson, pedagogy
Our study aims to create an analysis, from the following perspectives: pedagogical, philosophical and informatics on the feedback in the contemporary education.
Feedback is the mean by which the teacher can receive opinions about the activity or something he has done. This is very important for the person receiving it to improve their future performance. Given that, in contemporary society, courses can also be conducted online, and it is difficult in some scenarios for teachers to receive feedback from students. That is why it is so important for students to think about how teachers are conducting the educational act. Teachers generally don’t tend to ask students for feedback, even if this would have been beneficial in the act of teaching-learning, as they relied on the fact that they could physically follow them during classes. The bench position, the students' facial expressions and gestures were essential signals for the teachers, who helped them to adapt. However, in contemporary society many students do not interact in video and audio during classes, it is very difficult for teachers to observe from their attitude what they understood and what they did not. So the solution would be to opt for alternative methods of obtaining feedback.
