Google Docs

There is more to Google Docs than word processing, presentations, and spreadsheets.

Here are some other things teachers and students can do with Google Docs.

Thesaurus & Dictionary

Google Docs contains an integrated thesaurus, dictionary, and encyclopedia tool. It is a simple tool to use. Simply highlight a word in your document then select "look up word" from the "tools" drop-down menu. From there you can find a synonym, a definition, or an Encyclopedia Britannica reference to your selected word. Also worth noting is an image search tool integrated into Google Docs. Just like using the thesaurus tool, simply highlight a word in your document then select "search for images" from the "tools" menu. Suggested synonyms and definitions appear in a pop-up window that floats over the document you're working on.

Bibliography Templates

Google Docs has templates for creating bibliographies in APA, MLA, AMA, and Chicago Style. You can find these templates in the Google Docs Template Gallery.

The Google Docs bibliography templates could be very useful for any student that needs to create a bibliography.

Translation

Google’s translation tool is integrated into Google Docs. You can translate any document in Google Docs into your choice of fifty-one different languages. To use the translation feature, just select the "translate" option under the "tools" drop-down menu.

Google Docs translation tool obviously could be used in a foreign language class. It could also be useful if you have students that live in homes where English is not the primary language. If you need to send a letter home, you can easily print it out in multiple languages.
