#BASDedchat Twitter Chats Starting March 14!

Many BASD educators and administrators have been using Twitter to form connections across the district and the world. A popular way to collaborate using Twitter is by participating in a live Twitter Chat!

We have had so much excitement during our past Twitter Challenge that we have decided to start holding our own #BASDedchat starting on March 14 at 7PM. Keep watching the #BASDedchat hashtag on Twitter or follow @mdjames67, @ezundel or @LAMartinLAM for more details!

Check Out These Chrome Browser Extensions!

GSuite Training

G Suite Training is a Chrome extension that offers simple and interactive training lessons to get you up and running fast with G Suite (formerly Google Apps). Install it and then go to the G Suite app you want to learn about (Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Sites, Google Drive, etc).

Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon 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. When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome.

Screencastify Chrome Extension

Screencastify is the easiest way to Record, Edit, Annotate, Store, and Share video screen captures. Record a specific tab, or your whole desktop at the click of a button. And your whole experience is synced with your G-Suite. The free version allows for recordings up to 10 minutes.
