The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate to teachers how they can use Google Extensions in their classroom with their students and for themselves. These extensions will allow teachers to differentiate and/or enhance their students' learning. The format for this presentation will be in the form of a periodic table. Each square on the table will be linked to a Google Doc with a link to the Chrome Store, a description, and a video on how to use it. This table will be shared via a shared url.
Participants will learn over 80 extensions that can be used in the classroom.
Participants will be given a resource to take back and share with colleagues and students.
Content and activities: The format for this presentation will be in the form of a periodic table. Each square on the table will be linked to a Google Doc with a link to the Chrome Store, a description, and a video on how to use it. This table will be shared via a shared url. During the session I will share/demonstrate several extensions with the audience.
Time: Time will vary depending on what extensions are demonstrated and questions that the audience will have.
Process: This presentation will be interactive with me demonstrating extensions and giving the audience time to explore on their own if they chose.
The majority of my research on what extensions to use was by visiting websites and reading comments made by other educators. I also pay close attention to the star rating in the Chrome Store and any review post about it. After reading review I then turn to youtube videos and watch how others use the extension. If an extension looks like it will be beneficial to my students and/or staff I download it and use and also have students give it a try or two before I recommend others to use it. I can’t really state any research or documentation about using extensions except to share what I have learned and what my students have learned.
