If both you and your students have the Share to Classroom extension, you can push websites to the whole class at once by simply clicking on it, then pasting in the site you’d like them to look at. (You can also do this using Hapara, FYI.) Students can also share websites with you – and the extension keeps track of who has shared what with whom!
I loved this article on Control Alt Achieve by Eric Curts – “Seven Summarization Tools for Students.” Why would a student need a summary of an article before (or after) reading? What are the best tools out there? Click the link to find out! (And if you decide to use an app or extension that he suggests, let me know so that I can be sure it’s available to students.)
Used a shared calendar for your PLT, your club, or your sport. Go to your own Google Calendar, create a new calendar, invite your teammates, students, parents, anyone!, and use it to keep track of events and meetings.
Once you add people, they’ll get an invite to see, view and edit the calendar, and your work can begin. See the example below for a quick how-to.
