Try the new Add to Google Classroom Extension #edtech

It's summertime, but that doesn't mean that nothing new is happening the in the Edtech world. I've been putting a lot of these new tricks on a shelf for later but thought this one was worth sharing today.

Copying and pasting content from the web isn't difficult but it does take time. I like tools that let me quickly share content to important groups with a click. The Add to Google Classroom Extension does just that. Found a great article for your Social Studies class? Want to quickly share that new math video tutorial you found on Youtube? The Add to Google Classroom Extension puts a small extension icon in your Google Chrome Browser tool bar that let's you add the link with a click. From there you'll find the necessary drop-down menus to select a specific class and choose whether to post as an assignment or an announcement.

Since it is summertime, don't expect to get a lot of use out of this extension right away, but be sure to add it now and perhaps set a little calendar reminder to check it out again when the school year fires up. Enjoy!
