With the hook there, a lot of the learners were quite excited to develop a character of their own and use alliteration to help describe their abilities and background. I chose to use a combination of both Explain Everything so the learners could draw their character and Google Slides where they would be able to craft their descriptions. I shared this to the whole group so each learner had their own slide but could also read others as I wanted to introduce the element of peer feedback to the exercise.
After the first session, I began to read through the descriptions and thought that I would use the comment function of Google Slides to give the learners feedback. This was a bit of a risk as most of the learners hadn't had exposure to this form of feedback before however I gave each learner feedback.
The next day I explained to the group that I had read through their initial drafts and had given them feedback using comments. I modelled how they could find this on their slide. In hindsight, I hadn't told them about the 'reply' function of the comments but as you can see from the images below, they soon worked it out.
The majority of the responses were similar to this (NB have blocked out learners full names):
