EasyBib

easybibI love using EasyBib to create APA and MLA citations. This Chrome extension makes it even easier to build my bibliography. Instead of having to copy and paste the URL and opening the EasyBib website I can simply click on the extension icon. The EasyBib form pops up and pre-fills in the information.

Scroll to Top Button

scroll up Save classroom time by getting back to the top of the website quickly. Once you scroll down far enough the icon shows up in the upper right hand corner of the page. Click on it to scroll back to the top. Unfortunately this does NOT work in Google spreadsheet or Google Docs.

TLDR

If you are reading a blog make sure you click on the blog post title or it will summarize multiple articles at once. You can choose what level of summary you want. Save yourself time in your trek to find resources for students or looking at articles provided by your PLN.

Check All

Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 9.53.34 PMBeing a high school teacher with around 150 students I find I have to check a lot of checkboxes. Click on this extension to check all of the checkboxes. Better yet, use the uncheck all boxes option so you do not accidentally agree to save your password or other defaults on a website.
