Share to Classroom Chrome Extension

This past fall, Google announced the new Share to Classroom Chrome extension. With Share to Classroom, instantly "push" web content to student computers in a class with one click! Teachers can share sites, create and share assignments and create announcements to a class all within the Chrome browser. No more opening multiple tabs, copying and pasting links to create announcements/assignments/questions in Classroom. No more writing the website on the board, repeating the web address over and over, waiting to make sure everyone is on the right webpage. To use this extension both the teacher and students must have the Share to Classroom extension. Tech admin has already pushed out the Share to Classroom extensions to all SCS Google accounts. Students with Chromebooks will see the extension when they log on. Students with BYOT devices will just need to login to Chrome using your Google account. For more details on Share to Classroom see sharing for teachers and for students.
