Straight from the Google labs, Google Scribe! This handy dandy new tool has word prediction capabilities. Oooh, ahhh! Did you get as excited as I did when you read that? If not, maybe you were not thinking about young students trying to type. Instead of having your students type a paper in Word, they could type the paper in Google Scribe. This could save them a lot of time and help them produce a higher quality of work.
I recommend that students type a few sentences or a paragraph in Google Scribe and then copy and paste their text into a Word document or a Google Docs word doc to save the text.

This is one lab tool that I hope Google continues to develop.
