This contribution presents the practice of correcting student texts through the use of symbols, which has been used by and experimented with some lower secondary school teachers since the Seventies, to help students recognize their mistakes and improve their texts. Through the description of a field experimentation, it is shown how this correction strategy can be used in distance learning with the Classroom application, where it reveals to be equally useful.
