Instant Corrections

Ginger_MSWord_300DPI Teaching young learners or those with disabilities to write without stopping to correct everything can be the difference between frustration and a completed essay. Ginger Software follows along with kids, watching what they’ve typed and behind the scenes making changes in grammar, word choice and spelling. On top of Word, the program now works in Internet Explorer so it’s the perfect add-on for online blogs and forums. Without the student ever knowing he or she’s being watched, teachers can keep track of their progress with reports that look at the frequency of errors. The software sells for $145 for three systems or as little as $1 per computer with a district-wide license. There’s a free trial available.
