This research aims at studying the influence of corrective feedback made through digital tools by Canadian students in the development of Brazilian students' writing of a textual genre. In order to achieve our goals, we rely on the Socio-discursive Interactionism (SDI) studies proposed by Bronckart (1999, 2006, 2008). The research based on SDI is grounded in the vygotskian studies (Vigotski, 2004) about formal education, which hold the belief that higher mental functions, features of the human species, have their origins in interactions and are constantly restructured under educational influence. According to Vigotski (2004), all these features come with the aid of an instrument. In our research, we plan to investigate whether corrective feedback can be considered as an instrument that would allow students specializing in French to act on their own writing process. (AU)
