    • Spring 2010
    • Dr. Wall
  • 2. Number 10 Consolidate Your E-mail using Gmail Consolidate Your E-mail using Gmail
    • Do you have a separate e-mail account for work?
    • What about an account for strictly personal use?
    • Do you ever check your APSU account?
    • Wouldn’t it be nice to just check one account?
    • With a Gmail account you can read all your emails by checking only ONE account!
  • 3. Number Nine: Forgotten Attachment Detector
    • Do you ever get email replies that say something like, “you forgot to attach the file”?
    • You no longer have to worry! If you are using Gmail, it will remind you that you mentioned an attachment but did not attach it.
  • 4. Number Eight: Show Options to refine your search Show Options to refine your search
    • Overwhelmed with the responses your search returned?
    • Click “Show Options” to refine your search and find exactly what you are looking for without searching through useless information.

  • 5. Number Seven: Highlight Your Gmail with Labels Highlight Your Gmail with Labels
    • Now that you have all of your email coming in to one account, how do you keep track of the really important ones?
    • You can highlight and/or flag emails using Gmail labels.
    • Create labels for items that need urgent attention, items that need to be put on your to-do list/calendar, or even highlight the ones that have information you may use later in lesson planning.
  • 6. Number Six: Google Custom Search Engine Google Custom Search Engine
    • The custom search engine allows teachers to manipulate the information their students are searching
    • You control where the information is coming from so you don’t have to worry that your students are being misinformed or seeing things they shouldn’t.
  • 7. Number Five: Chrome Pass
    • There are so many websites that offer lesson plan prep materials and the each require a login name and password.
    • Do you have too many different logins and passwords to remember?
    • Chrome Pass allows you to look at the user name and passwords for sites you have accessed using the Google Chrome browser.
  • 8. Number Four:
    • Want to share information from a webpage with your colleagues or your students?
    • By using the pdf download bookmarklet you can create a pdf file from any web page.
    • pdf files are easier to print and easier to email.
  • 9. Number Three: Reopen a closed tab Reopen a closed tab
    • “AAACCCKKKKK!!!! I didn’t mean to close that tab, and I don’t remember how I got there!”
    • If you are running the Google Chrome Browser you can imply press Control+Shift+T to reopen closed tabs.
  • 10. filetype:???
    • Do you wish you had a PowerPoint to share with your students but don’t have the time to create your own?
    • Do you wonder if someone else has already created a handout related to your current topic so that you can use your time to focus on something else?
    • Google allows you to search the internet for specific types of files. Just use “filetype:” followed by the abbreviation for the file type while searching. For example to find a PowerPoint on The Diary of Anne Frank type “The Diary of Anne Frank filetype:ppt”
    * Note you can view the file as HTML before downloading it to your computer. Number Two:
  • 11. And now, what I believe to be the Google tip for teachers...
  • 12.
    • Pictures are great to use as attention grabbers before a lesson, as well as to help students visualize concepts being taught in the lesson.
    • You no longer have to worry about finding a picture that relates to your lesson. If it is out there Google images will find it for you!
