USING CHROME EXTENSIONS

You may have heard of extensions (not the hair kind... the computer kind), but what are they exactly? Extensions are small software programs that can modify and enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser. When you add an extension, it places a small icon at the end of your address bar (where you type in a web address), which allows you to easily access the extension. There are tons of extensions available that you can use in your classroom.
