On any typical day, teachers have to answer thousands of questions. Some questions have easy answers and others, not so much. I know one of my most common questions is, “How do you spell <insert any word here>?” Wouldn’t it be great to have a personal assistant that could help with all kids’ spelling questions? What if I told you that you already do!
Thanks to the brilliance of second-grade teacher, Deby Comfort, you may never have to answer spelling questions again! She recently shared that she uses the Google Docs voice typing feature to have kids check spellings of words. After hearing this idea, I pummeled voice typing with some pretty difficult vocabulary to check it out and was totally impressed!
To access voice typing, click on the ‘Tools’ menu and select ‘Voice typing’. Google Docs may ask permission to access the microphone and be sure to allow it that access. Once you do that, no one will ever have to ask you how to spell chrysanthemum ever again!
