13 Good Chrome Extensions and Apps for Students and Teachers | Tools for Learning | Scoop.it

By Richard Byrne

 

"Later this week I am going to be a virtual guest in a class at the University of the Philippines, Diliman. The topic I've been invited to speak about is using Google Chrome extensions and apps in education. In preparation for my virtual visit I've created this list of some of my favorite apps and extensions."

Very useful collection.

Some great apps. I think Read and Write would be particularly useful for use with Google Drive

This is a nice simple browser based whiteboard app that runs in the browser on most devices. Would be nice to have a few more features, such as import images etc, but there is also a lot to be said for simplicity.

Easy and usefull :)

Lorie Callander's curator insight, August 16, 2013 11:45 AM

I am trying this too. We'll see. There is also a teacher sign-up for limited sharing with and among students etc. I just want a whiteboard that I can easily access without making plans to leave my classroom to go to where the, difficult to navigate and use, whiteboard is.

There is a standalone version which works with Chrome and Safari. Best citation manager by a long way...

I love Zotero for keeping track of research and citing sources.  Couldn't do without it.

Use Vittle to build a video library on any subject. It is also a powerful tool for collaborating across time and space with any number of people.

Looks interesting,thanks.
Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 11:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

Useful for explaining concepts in a visually interesting way.
