Google document recommendations + students

First time writing on this platform. Want to give it a good shot.

I have found great pleasure and convenience using the google doc recommendations that help suggest the next word in your sentence. You know… the kind that you must confirm with the tab button. For those who use docs often however, I am concerned about the product/code altering the path of the writer and possibly even pushing groupthink.

As I write, if I see google’s recommendation as “stronger” than the word I intended on placing, I would choose google in an instant. But as this code gets stronger and stronger, is my work really my own anymore?

Just thoughts. Open to other thoughts.
