#TCEA17 Favorite Finds
As always, TCEA's annual conference was amazing and did not disappoint. Here are a few of my favorite finds:
G Suite Training Extension - This free Chrome extension provides interactive training lessons on the various G Suite (formerly Google Apps) products. Once the extension is installed, the simple, interactive trainings can be accessed by clicking the question mark in the top right corner of the browser window. When activated, the training lessons appear within the application....meaning you don't have to leave the application to learn about it. The extensive training topics vary from beginner to advanced and are arranged in short videos that are chunked by category. If you are a Google user, this extension is a must!
FlipQuiz - Ideal for interactive whiteboards, FlipQuiz is a quick way to create gameshow-style boards (think Jeopardy) to use as a fun review game with your students. Using this tool, teachers can create new, customized game boards, or search the community for shared resources. FlipQuiz is free, but also offers additional features and options in the Pro (paid) version.
CuePrompter - CuePrompter is a free online teleprompter tool. Simply type your script in the box, adjust fonts, prompter window size, and font colors and you're all set for a professional video!
