Seven Essential Chrome Extensions for Teachers and StudentsTuesday, September 8, 201512:02 PM
Most of the technology I use in the classroom and in my professional practice has one of two goals: transform learning or make life easier and more efficient. One of the best tools to help with these goals are Google Chrome Extensions, which I always describe as free extras that add functionality to the Chrome Browser. Extensions are found in the Chrome Web Store, where you can also find add-ons and apps. You can Google terms like “best Chrome extensions for teachers” and find so many articles on the topic, or pose the question on Twitter like I did and get some great ideas.
One of my goals this summer was to explore extensions more and develop my list of the essentials for education, to use both with teachers and students. I always share these during PD sessions and teach students how to install them and use them to make life easier in the classroom. I find extensions to get a lot of buy in from all audiences because of their simplicity to find and install, and their power to make complex tasks so much better.
