Google Chrome

Extensions and Apps for Teachers and Students

The Google Chrome Store introduces more and more valuable extensions each day. Google Chrome extensions can be used to get more out of the device you currently have as well as help to support your instruction.

Extensions, Apps and Add-Ons

Extensions affect something global on your browser. When you install the extension, that feature is available on every single site you visit. Extensions use downloaded components to modify your browser.

Apps are basically websites. They run within Chrome's browser, and they may not even require any downloads. Sometimes they may need to install a small component on your local machine, but that will only make a difference when you're using that particular Web app.

Add-Ons are tools in Google Drive that are built by third-party developers and allow increased functionality in docs, sheets and forms.
