Helpful Google Doc Tools

posted Oct 18, 2016, 6:55 AM by Jeremy Noyes

Google has embedded some very helpful tools for students and teachers into its Google Docs platform.  Take a look at the above graphic.

  • Spelling - Everyone uses this feature, nothing new here.

  • Research - Clicking on research allows you to research a topic right from within your document.  

  • Define - Another part of research, allows you to search dictionary terms right from your document.

  • Document Outline - Automatically creates an outline of your document based on formatting such as bold or underline.  

  • Word Count - Self explanatory but great tool for students.

  • Voice Typing - Newer feature that allows you to use your voice to type into the document.  Great tool for those with accessibility needs or requirements.
