Chrome Classroom (2014)

Why Chrome?
  • Google tools are optimized for Chrome
  • Apps and Extensions provide endless possibilities
  • Ability to sync data across devices
The Basics
  1. Logging in to the Browser
  2. Multiple Accounts
  3. Extensions and Apps
    • An App is essentially a stand alone web application that works within a SINGLE browser window. Some of these apps offer OFFLINE options so if you lose your Internet connection, you can still work. 
    • An Extension is adds some sort of functionality across all tabs and windows of your browser, usually by clicking on an icon at the top of the browser.
    Educational Uses
    • Apps and Extensions for teacher productivity
    • Apps for student projects
      • Most use Google to log in (kids don't have to create new accounts)
      • Some use Drive for file storage
    • Google Play for Education now allows teachers to push out Apps and Extensions to students
