In addition to learn about incredible apps for the iPads at the EdTech Teacher Summer Workshops with Shawn McCusker, he also shared some of his favorite Chrome extensions that “make life easier”. I’m still on the fence about Chrome, as I can’t seem to get off the Safari train :/ But after reading Melinda Miller’s post about TabCloud, I thought I’d give it a serious shot as my “go-to” browser.
Here are some of my 2 of my new favorite Chrome extensions & why I love them:
goo.gl URL Shortener
Obviously, this extension helps shorten the URL website you are on to make something easily sharable, but I love the feature that creates a QR code that will allow others to easily access the shortened URL with one quick click. This extension will be incredibly awesome to use next year as our teachers and students collaborate and share in a 1:1 environment.
If you’re anything like me, you have TONS of tabs open at the same time in your browser. This extension allows you (again, with one click) to take all of those tabs and consolidate them into a list. Again, the share/collaborate factor exists where you can share out the “one tab” via a QR code with others. Here’s a OneTab that Shawn shared with us.
I would love to know what your favorite extensions are…..comment below!
