Below is a slide presentation with some of my favorite tips, tools, and resources to engage students with Google Classroom.
- Download the separate mobile apps for gmail, docs, spreadsheets, photos, drive, search, slides, and more.
- Download extensions like Screencastify, Share to Google Classroom, Extensity, Bitmoji. Discover more at Bit.ly/50chrome!
- I recommend getting the Extensity extension which helps you manage all your extension.
- Cool trick- if you upload a Google photo of text to Google Drive, locate the file, then right click on the file and choose to open with Google Docs. This will turn that image into text.
- Extensity helps you manage all your extensions so your browser runs faster and isn't full of tons of extensions at once.
- Read & Write– One of the best apps for students that has many features, such as reading aloud whole texts or selections while highlighting the words, defining words with text and picture dictionaries, speech to text, suggestion of the next word to write, and much more.
- Grammarly– Spell checker and grammar checker for written documents, email and status updates on various social media sites.
- Duolingo– Use with the duolingo mobile app to learn vocabulary with various lessons and quizzes. A user also created the Duolingo Vocabulary Manager, which is supposed to do more than the Duolingo extension.
- Lingually– Features include definitions, grammar check, and a flashcard maker with new vocabulary.
- English Dictionary Translate– Defines words in simple terms, translates in native language, provides example sentences, shows the phonetic transcription and gives the pronunciation.
- Vocabla– A dictionary and translator that keeps a vocabulary list.
- ReadLang– Translator that creates flashcards with new vocabulary.
- SpeakIt– Select any text and hear it read aloud in 50 different languages.
- Google Translate also has an extension to translate any word.
