Over at the Control Alt Achieve blog, Eric Curts has a terrific post on Self-Editing Tools for Student Writing in Google Docs. Here is a quick summary with links to the tools. I highly recommend you read the full post if you’re interested in sharing tools with your students that can help them with their writing process. Eric’s post has excellent screenshots and easy to follow instructions for using each tool.

  1. Speech-to-text

    Allows students to have their spoken words typed directly into their document.

  2. Text-to-speech

    Allows students to listen as their typed document is read back to them.

  3. Grammar checking

    Scans documents and provides feedback.

  4. Thesaurus tools

    Helps students add variety to their writing vocabulary.
