If Google Was a Super Hero, I Am Pretty Sure That Voice Tools Would Be It’s Super Power!

Technology allows us to accomplish things that have never been accomplished before and using Google’s speech-to-text capabilities, our children are now able to transpose their ideas from verbal expression into text form. This is a huge bonus in GSuite (Formerly- Google Apps For Education), especially for those of us that work with young children or any age with special needs.

In this blog post series, I am going to talk about the three creative ways Google has woven Voice Tools into its suite of apps and how I am currently using them in my elementary classroom to empower student learning:

  1. Speech-To-Text
  2. Text-To-Speech
  3. “Okay Google” Search Option

I will offer a complete set of Google Slides on this topic (They are still in progress) in my final post of this series. My slides – “Using Google Voice Tools”  will break procedures down into bite-sized pieces, offer kid-friendly language and have all the links and images you see throughout this series so that you may easily use my slides to teach your students how to use the three tools above for themselves.

I have received an amazing amount of fantastic feedback on my last four “Google Basics For Kids” series, so thank you for the awesome feedback!!

My next post will walk you through using Google’s Voice Typing Tool in Google Docs and Slides. There is a special trick to getting it to work in Slides!
