Chrome Apps, Extensions and Add-ons


Welcome to Chrome Apps, Extensions and Add-ons bootcamp!  In this crazy cool PD we will be digging into the wonderful world of the Chrome Web Store and all of its awesomeness.  I have complied a fairly extensive list of Apps and Extensions that I want to show you and have you play with in today's session.  Today we will be looking at many different resources that will hopefully make your classroom lives easier.  The break down for today is as follows:
  • What is the difference between an App, Extension, and Add-on?
  • Where do you find these things at?
  • How do you navigate the Chrome Web Store?
  • How do you add an app and where does it go?
  • How do you add extensions and then use them?
  • Where do you manage all of these features at?
