Google Chrome has become the de facto internet browser surpassing competition, with Safari, Firefox, and IE combined well below Chrome’s nearly-50% market share. Over the last weekend, Team ScooNews spent sometime curating some of the best Chrome extensions for teachers. Our selection is based on criteria such as popularity of the extensions, ratings, ease of use, increased efficiency and relevance to educators...etc.
According to Google - Google Chrome Extensions are “applications that run inside the Chrome browser and provide additional functionality, integration with third party websites or services, and customized browsing experiences.”
Please note that too many extensions can slow your browser down, and speed is one of Chrome’s shining points.
Capture all or part of any web page. Add annotations, comments, blur sensitive info, and share with one-click uploads. Awesome Screenshot is the highest-rated screen capture & image annotation tool on Chrome with over 2 million users.
Blocksi is the top rated extension for Web & Youtube Filtering, Internet access time management and trend analysis for Chrome and Chromebooks.
Grammarly makes sure your messages, documents, and social media posts are clear, mistake-free, and impactful. Adding Grammarly to Chrome means spelling and grammar will be vetted on Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr, and nearly everywhere else you write on the web. https://goo.gl/iYjBLn
