Recently, I became aware of an AMAZING Chrome Extension: Draft Back. Veronica Tadeo (@MsTadeo) introduced me to this. It’s simple, it plays back your, or your students’, Google Docs.

Once the Extension is installed, you will see a Draftback button next to the Share and Comment button on the top right corner.

Once the function is selected, it creates a playback. Choose ‘View’. Once selected, a new tab will appear with the playback.

You can see that at one point I copied and pasted text. Pretty cool, right?




Jazzing Up Your Chrome

One way to personalize your Google Chrome is through Themes. Themes can be found in the Chrome Web Store. Themes are browser skins that are fun to use and can change the look and feel of the browser. The full image of the theme will appear on a new tab.

It’s easy to change: Navigate to the Chrome Web Store. The default is set to Apps. Following the list to the end, you will see Themes.

Themes 1While in Themes, you can choose to navigate by artist, those by Google, or just peruse the available Themes.

Theme 2Once you find a theme you like, click on it. You can see an overview, details, and reviews. If you choose to use the theme, simply click on the blue button, in this case the theme was Free.
