Teacher Tech Tip - Voice Typing

Voice typing in Google Docs!

Voice Typing launched in the tools menu in Google Docs earlier this year. It has been widely publicized and rightfully so as it serves as a great asset to any user. Voice typing is simple as you can quickly dictate your thoughts and the text will appear in your Google Doc. I especially like it for creating quick feedback to students in their writing vs. typed responses. It is also handy for students that have a handwritten report and wanted it in a digital format. Students can read their responses aloud while voice typing does all the heavy lifting.
