ISTE Top 10 - #6 - Google Tone Extension
one session I learned that Google has a chrome extension
called “Google Tone”. Once you add it to your computer you can go to any website
that you want to send out to students. The extension then generates a “tone”
from your computer that other computers pick up (they also have to
have the extension). The tone will be “read” by the other computers and will
automatically direct someone to the website you want. It was pretty cool.
Since students would also have to have Google tone there is an element of abuse
potential with students sending out their own tones. I am not sure if that would be
embraced by our teachers but it would be fun to highlight in a PD setting.
I started this blog many years ago as a classroom science teacher with the express purpose of sharing notebooking ideas with other educators. I have since moved into a technology coach position within our district so this site has morphed into a general teaching blog. Basically anything that I see or do in schools that I think is pretty cool gets highlighted here. If you are visiting to find notebooking information please look at my earlier posts. I have tried to label all my posts so information is easier to find...so, when in doubt look at the labels. As always, if you have any question please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help!
