Technology for Reading and Writing

Use Google Docs to dictate a first draft; use it to hear your paper read back to you. Because CVCC uses Gmail for student email, you have access to Google docs–you never have to worry about losing a flash drive.



Use Office 365 (free for CVCC students) for immersive reading; there’s a free add-on that will read aloud and highlight words as you go.


Use Adobe Reader to annotate.
