Chrome Apps for Mobile Learning
I like OneDrive for GoogleChrome Applications because you can keep all of your files like pictures, and documents all in one place. Would be useful for the person who has many files and lessons to keep track of.
This would be great in the primary levels of elementary school giving them hands on technology tools to help them build words for language comprehension.

WeatherBug or The Weather Channel for Chrome
In the grade six curriculum, there is a Science Unit discussing weather patterns and cloud formations. This app, 'WeatherBug' would be great for students to get a real-time look at the weather in their area or even in other areas of the world. How fun, interesting, and descriptive for the student. The app is engaging, colorful, and easy to follow and read. A great app , that I highly recommend using in the classroom when needed. For more information on WeatherBug, read below information that is from the source:
Download WeatherBug to access the world’s largest network of real-time weather and lightning sensors for the best forecasts, the fastest alerts and more. When minutes matter (and they do when severe weather strikes), get more time, and Know Before™.
Digital Clock, Timer, and Stopwatch on Google Apps
Timer and Stopwatch are both for the student or teacher who is always busy or on the run! It can be implemented in the classroom as a tool to use for the interactive whiteboard on the digital projector to use in an exam setting or in gym class to calculate distances, and keep track of times.
