One of us was at an awesome training today on Google Classroom, and the presenter mentioned a Chrome app for annotating on PDFs. Our immediate thought: this would also be fantastic in regard to our handouts! If you use our PDF handouts and want students to be able to annotate on them digitally, you need to try out Doc Hub.
Doc Hub is a free Chrome app that allows students to sign in with their Google account and easily annotate on a PDF! It's awesome.
Here's a quick silent screenshot video showing how it works here (on our Twitter):
Do you like Poll Everywhere? It's a great, FREE tool that will let you do all kinds of formative assessments during a lesson including multiple choice questions, open ended responses, and word clouds.
Poll Everywhere has always played nice with PowerPoint. Now it also plays nice with Google Slides. By installing the Chrome extension "Poll Everywhere," you will find an extra menu item at the top that says "Poll Everywhere" whenever you open Google Slides. You can them click this menu item and begin creating polls in the Google Slides.
Remember that your students can work in Google slides too as it's a great collaborative tool. You can have as many as 50 people working in a Google Slide set at one time (that number may change in the future).
See the screenshots below showing installation of the Chrome extension and where it can be found one you open Google Slides! Click screenshots to enlarge.
