How I Use It
I have used this product for brainstorming before writing with students who have trouble organizing their ideas. In addition I have used it with students who have motor skill issues- such as tremors to complete some of their writing assignments to speed up their work completion and take some of the stress out of an assignment. I have had students use this when revising their samples to help with spelling.
My Take
I like that students once introduced can use this independently. It allows students to be more independent when completing their work. It can also be used as a spell checker during the writing process and or the revision process.
