Ed Tech Tips with E. Mosier

Make your classroom more E-fficient!

Resources Available to Students and Teachers


For this week's Ed Tech Tips, I have called in a little assistance. The students in my 7th grade Computer Applications class have created short explanations of different tech tools. The purpose of these are they are all available on student (and teacher) Chromebooks. This was a project developed by my Collaborative Teacher Team and answers the question, "What is this tool and how can I use it?" The following are a few of their explanations of various Chrome Extensions, add-ons, and resources that students in the DCSD have.
