Tech Tip for Teachers- Amazing Tools

Extensions make Google Chrome work in some pretty cool ways. Extension are just small additions to Chrome. You already have some in your Chrome like the App Launcher (The 9 squares or the waffle).

If you are someone who has too many tabs open and you are -afraid- to close them… the One Tab extension is just for you! It allows you to keep all your tabs open in just one tab!

Click on the Link.

Click Add to Chrome.

Click Add Extension.

Then you will see the Extension on the top right hand side of Chrome.

Click and be WOWed!

Advisory Corner

Advisory Corner-

I will share a google doc for each grade level to help select the focus for change at OQMS this Trimester.

Reps this past Friday were given two responsibilities:

  • Brainstorm topics for community building circle talks
  • Brainstorm topics for restorative circle talks.

Reps in smaller classes can lead the whole group in the talks but larger Advisories should split in two with the teacher conducting one talk and the rep conducting the other talks during this trimester.
