[Athen] Use Siri to improve your spelling

Something I remind students: there are studies that show if you type a word correctly you kinesthetically master it. But if you keep typing it incorrectly, you also master the incorrect spelling.
I was just typing an email and couldn't remember how to spell "initiative". So I asked Siri. "Hey Siri, how do you spell initiative".
I typed as she spelled. This way I don't develop the habit of typing it wrong.
Spell checkers are better for catching typos IMOH; so remind students that Siri (Cortana and Alexa can do this too) can spell it correctly letting you type it right the first time.
