Happy Media Literacy Week! Check out the Newseum’s site for additional resources.
Before jumping into a few of what I have found to be useful extensions for teaching and learning, it might be helpful to briefly explain what an “extension” is. Extensions are lines of code that run within a browser that “extend” the functionality of the browser. Here are just a few additional things you should also know about extensions:
- The more extensions you have, the slower your browser will become
- The extensions travel with you as long as you are signed into the Chrome browser. FYI… Being signed into your Google Account and the Chrome Browser are 2 distinct actions.
- You can modify or remove extensions by visiting the Chrome Web Store.
- Extensity – Manages extensions in your toolbar
- Loom – Video Recorder: Screen, Webcam and Mic
- Drive Slides – Create a Google Slides presentation from images contained in a Drive Folder
- Google Docs Quick Create – Quickly create Google Docs from your Browser bar
- Google Keep – Easily curate and organize materials on the web, as well as create lists
- Kaizena – Give verbal feedback on student work
- One Tab – Converts all your tabs into a list that can be saved, edited and shared
- Tab Resize – Split-screen layout on Chrome
- Newsela – Daily news sources from the Associated Press, Washington Post, Scientific American, the Smithsonian, the King Center, biography.com and more!
- Desmos Graphing Calculator – Plot functions, create tables, animate graphs
