One Tab Chrome Extension

Chrome extensions are tools that enhance what the Chrome web browser can do. Extensions can be downloaded from the Web Store, and each one you install is shown as a small icon just to the right of your URL bar (also known as the Omnibar).

OneTab is an extension you might want to check out. Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs open, you can click on the OneTab icon in the upper right-hand corner of your browser to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once. You will not lose your list of tabs if you accidentally close the OneTab window, if your browser crashes, or if you restart your computer. Depending on how many tabs you have open, it can also speed up your computer.

Quizizz Teleport and Google Classroom

In the last newsletter, I shared a Quizizz tutorial with you. Mickie Mueller has posted two videos on YouTube that makes creating a Quizizz quiz so easy by using questions from public quizzes that have already been created. In the second video she shows how to share a quiz to Google Classroom. I tried this with an Excel 2007 quiz for my junior high kids, and it worked well.
