Bite-sized PD from Innovative Learning: Chrome Tip

For: All

This week's quick tip makes sharing websites with students, families, and colleagues easier than ever! In the Chrome browser, notice the share icon at the end of the address bar (looks like a page with an up arrow in it, right next to the star to bookmark the page). Using that "sharrow," you can copy the link or even send it to another of your devices. But they also recently added the option to create a QR code. Click that option to create and download a QR code that you can then share in a slide presentation or on a flyer to make it easy for your audience to get to any website.
