Tech Tip of the Week
Recover a Closed Tab
Are you certain that students are NOT on task in class, but every time you get near their screen, they close the tab of whatever site they're fooling around on? Lean over, press these three keys...and PRESTO! Magically restore whatever they were looking at! They will think you are an evil genius!
- All at once, press CTRL-SHIFT-T
- Boom, tab restored!
- Each time you do it, another previous tab is restored!
SIGNED UP FOR TWITTER YET?
Summer is a great time to discover Twitter. Twitter is a great source of professional development and collaboration to add to your personal learning network. Most educators understand how useful a Google search can be to find resources online but how would you like to conduct a search online along with personal recommendations from your colleagues and friends? Twitter could be considered a social search engine. Sometimes it is easier to search for information on Twitter rather than Google. Not only do you find some good resources but you can see who among your friends and colleagues are using that same resource and how. Some users of Twitter even have regular Twitter chats on various topics. What a great tool for professional learning.
Why Twitter for Educators ?!
