CLASSROOM 2.0 LIVE webinar, “Cool Google Tips and Tricks: Google Search and Extensions” with Paula Naugle.

Aug 8, 2015


00:07 - Peggy George
Here we go!

00:22 - Joe Dale
I have my Chromebook open too next to so I can install extensions straightaway! Does Blackboard Collaborate work on a Chromebook?

00:23 - Peggy George
So excited to have Paula sharing with us today!!

00:55 - Patti Ruffing
@joe, I don't believe you can install java on the chromebook

00:57 - @viralber
Hi Peggy!

01:37 - Joe Dale
That's what I thought. Will be great if it is possible to use Collaborate in the future as well as Skype on a Chromebook!

01:48 - Lorie Moffat
There are mobile versions of Collaborate.

02:17 - Joe Dale
Sure. I can take part with my iPad if need be :-)

02:20 - Susie @shighley
40th Congratulations!

02:42 - Carolyn Stanley
I've fallen so far behind since I've been retired. I brought Google Apps for Education to my district, but it changes so fast. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from Paula.

02:43 - dotty
Congratulations on 40 years

03:08 - Carolyn Stanley
40 years is a trememdous achievement.

03:33 - Patti Ruffing
40 for me too, Paula, don't you wonder how all these years have gone by so quickly? We never would have guessed what we would be doing 40 years into the future.

04:11 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Patti, I still can't believe that this is year 40. Where did all those years go?

04:36 - Peggy George
I can't help but glow when I talk about Paula! :-)

04:43 - Patti Ruffing
Paula is amazing, every word Peggy said is so true.

04:48 - Peggy George
:-)

05:28 - Peggy George
that is such a challenge to find the best resources in a Google search if you don't know some of these tips/tricks!

05:47 - Peggy George
Here's our Livebinder link for today. http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1759970

05:57 - Peggy George
Lots of great links to explore later :-)

06:24 - Peggy George
great idea Paula! Slides first and application sharing later :-) The live demos are always great!

06:32 - Greg PHX
Newbie concern: security and privacy exposures as a consequence of installing and running extensions.

06:55 - Susie @shighley
Or could even have two devices ready

07:04 - Peggy George
Thanks Greg! Lorie will be saving our questions and will ask Paula during the Q/A

07:25 - Peggy George
already learned something new! query box! :-)

07:50 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Finally in here... update java... restart browser... download this... ugh. But, hoping I didn't miss a bunch of cool stuff.

07:51 - Peggy George
hahaha!!! not a chance!

07:56 - aunttammie
It works!

08:00 - Peggy George
So glad you made it Tonya!!!

08:29 - Peggy George
there are even extensions for different countries

08:55 - Peggy George

09:12 - Peggy George
that colon is so powerful!!

09:32 - Peggy George
Hi Clarissa and Dusanka! Welcome!

09:55 - Peggy George
http://www.googleguide.com/advanced_operators_reference.html#intext

10:10 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Thanks, Peggy!

10:13 - stidmama
wow. already "news I can use" this afternoon as I plan our first forays into computers next month!

10:16 - Peggy George
that's a huge help to be able to seach just for a PPT!

10:40 - @careeson Clarissa
Thanks Peggy, glad to be here!

11:34 - Peggy George
this is such an important tip about CC images! It's so important for our students to learn the requirements for sharing online! Digital citizenship!!

11:43 - LisaD
Cute activity starter:)

11:54 - @careeson Clarissa
That's a great idea Paula.

11:56 - Peggy George
CC stands for Creative Commons :-)

12:04 - Greg PHX
+1 @Peggy

12:12 - Susie @shighley
I've also heard of a teacher taking a student's drawing, putting it on the bulletin board, and putting the teacher's name on it.

12:22 - Googlz 1
I use the Tools>reseach and ask them to select Free to use in the Doc, Presentation

12:32 - LisaD
A "Fair"y Use tale is an awesome video too:))

12:53 - Peggy George
Yes LisaD!! Can you share the link for that? It's excellent!

13:07 - Peggy George
What a clever idea Susie!

13:21 - Patti Ruffing
Here is info on how to correctly credit a CC image https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/Best_practices_for_attribution

14:03 - Patti Ruffing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJn_jC4FNDo Fair-y Use Tale

14:11 - Peggy George
this is such an amazing tip!!! Incredible that we can find an image again just by dragging it into the search box! :-)

14:30 - Peggy George
Thanks Patti for those links!

14:31 - Greg PHX
Q: Does reverse image search work for cropped images?

14:39 - Carolyn Stanley
I have had a hard time doing this. Will it only find an image already on line. I've wanted to drag a picture I've taken of a plant into the bar to see if it can identify it.

15:01 - Peggy George
I use this conversion tip all the time--especially to find out what something costs in the US if the price is listed as the UK pound :-)

15:08 - Carolyn Stanley
I use the conversion tool all the time.

15:28 - Susie @shighley
Did that on an article about the best laptops yesterday

15:42 - Peggy George
Temperature is also a great thing to be able to convert when we are collaborating with people from other countries!

15:44 - LisaD
Thanks Patti for sharing link:)

16:23 - LisaD
Yes Greg it will work will cropped images.

16:32 - Peggy George
wow! so helpful to be able to drill down right on the site!

16:37 - Carolyn Stanley
I've only done that when there was an actual search box in the site. This is an interesting tool.

16:49 - Susie @shighley
would putting "blue room" in quotes make a difference in the search?

16:50 - Greg PHX
@LisaD: thanks

17:08 - Peggy George
http://www.google.com/intl/ta/insidesearch/searcheducation/index.html (Google Search Education)

17:24 - Joe Dale
I've added some javascript to my browser bar which allows you to find keywords on a webpage or search a site very easily

18:32 - Peggy George
that's a great idea Joe! How do you do that?

19:36 - Peggy George
what an awesome word to know about! Lagniappe! a bonus!

20:16 - Susie @shighley
I haven't heard that called the "hamburger bar" before. I'll remember that!

20:28 - Susie @shighley
I mean menu

20:31 - Peggy George
me either Susie!!! :-)

20:47 - Susie @shighley
It makes sense

20:51 - Carolyn Stanley
Hamburger? I never knew that. Thanks, Paula. neet

21:05 - Patti Ruffing
it's all about food, the apps launcher is called the waffle, lol

21:16 - Carolyn Stanley
I did the timer thing! It works! Fabulous! I need that to remind me not to sit too long.

21:18 - Suzanne Sallee
Recently also heard it referred to as "pancakes"

21:23 - Susie @shighley
I didn't know about rearranging either

21:23 - Peggy George
11? :-)

21:26 - Tammy 1
11

22:10 - Carolyn Stanley
I think the only Chrome extension I have is the Evernote clipper. That is a very useful tool.

22:12 - Peggy George
will all of the extensions automatically appear in the browser if they are enabled or do you have to enable them each time?

22:21 - Susie @shighley
If kids add lots and lots of extensions, does that slow down the browser?

22:34 - Patti Ruffing
yes running a lot at one time can do that, Susie

22:35 - Peggy George
great question Susie!

22:46 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Use an extension manager to easily toggle them off/on/ They do make the browser slow. I use Extensity.

23:01 - aunttammie
I use Extensity, too.

23:28 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Extensity is also an extension, btw, but it lets you easily turn them off or on. Then, you can jsut keep it running and your most used.

23:31 - Peggy George
oh I love hearing about the "favorites" of teachers!!!

23:35 - Patti Ruffing
Extensity has a 5 star rating

23:43 - Peggy George
Hi Thomas! Great to see you!

23:56 - Susie @shighley
Good to see you, Thomas!

24:02 - Joe Dale
Here are some instructions Peggy https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ra1A8SKoeK2ca19yGv-BgD747cfudMnFXAaXfDcA51g/edit?usp=sharing

24:07 - Peggy George
Adblock is a great extension!

24:31 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Until I accidentally disabled Adblock, I didn't realize weather channel had a big ol' ad at the top! ha ha

24:48 - Peggy George
haha! Tonya!

25:10 - Peggy George
(Paula’ blog post on the Chrome extension Grammarly)
http://plnaugle.blogspot.com/2015/07/grammarly-chrome-extension.html

25:12 - Marcie Hebert
I love the Diigo one to quickly add sites to my diigo list.

25:28 - Peggy George
me too Marcie! I use the Diigo extension every day!

25:40 - Susie @shighley
Does it work on google docs?

26:18 - Peggy George
we love FREE!!

26:31 - Pat Swiatek
Free is good!

26:37 - Tonya from Missouri 3
I use Grammarly constantly on my school computer, but it hasn't worked great on my laptop. I think maybe you have to keep it enabled when you start the browser. I have issues toggling it on.

26:48 - Joe Dale
I find One Click Extension Manager https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/one-click-extension-manag/pbgjpgbpljobkekbhnnmlikbbfhbhmem and The Great Suspender are very useful https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-great-suspender/klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg?hl=en

27:08 - LisaD
Wow!

27:19 - Peggy George
that's fascinating! didn't know about the weekly email from Grammarly! Wonder what would happen if you copied the text in that email into a Wordle? Would be interesting to see if the words are repeated.

27:26 - Marcie Hebert
If you open a lot of tabs, Onetab is a favorite. It will take all open tabs and put them into a list that you can get back to through onetab.

27:32 - Peggy George
Thanks Joe!! Can't wait to check that out!

27:55 - Joe Dale
I have added a bunch of these to my iPad too in Safari!

27:58 - Tonya from Missouri 3
I agree. OneTab is my choice (I hadn't heard of Great Suspender, but OneTab has 5 stars)

28:02 - Fern
clearly is wonderful! Nice for reading without visual distraction; also works with Firefox.

28:17 - dotty #2
I use one tab it is convenient.

28:35 - Peggy George
(Paula’ blog post on the extension Read&Write)
http://plnaugle.blogspot.com/2013/06/love-this-google-doc-extension.html

28:37 - Carolyn Stanley
My husband will enjoy Clearly. Thanks.

29:03 - Doug in San Leandro CA
@Peggy: Here's a website on using javascript in the address box:
http://pteromys.melonisland.net/code/addressbar.html

29:25 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Hmm.... love her example. But, my school blocks Bitly AND Twitter.

29:44 - Peggy George
One Tab has been a huge help for me! When I go to webinars I often open many tabs and it can crash my browser. Can save instantly and keep going. :-)

30:04 - Peggy George
there are lots of different shorteners for URLs

30:22 - Suzanne Sallee
Goo.gl is one of my favorites!!

30:26 - Peggy George
that is a bonus for the Google shortener--you can get a QR code for the link!

30:30 - Tonya from Missouri 3
I use the goo.gl one in class. They unblocked Twitter for teachers only this summer, though many Twitter URLs are blocked.

30:42 - Joe Dale
The QR code Extension extension is great for generating a QR code of any page you are as well as being able to scan although holding up a Chromebook to scan a QR code could be problematic! https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-qr-code-extension/oijdcdmnjjgnnhgljmhkjlablaejfeeb?hl=en

30:45 - aunttammie
I wonder if tinyurl has one of these extensions....gotta check

31:01 - Peggy George
thanks Joe!

31:07 - Suzanne Sallee
Being able to get the QR code is a timesaver

31:17 - Peggy George
great question Tammie! I often use tinyurl!

31:19 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Guess what's also blocked at my school... Flickr... yep. :(

31:29 - Patti Ruffing
@Joe, wouldnt it be great to have a Chromebook that you could reverse the camera!

32:10 - Peggy George
We've added a lot of additional resources for Google search and Extensions in our Livebinder today! http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1759970

32:10 - Joe Dale
Defo!!!!!

32:23 - Doug in San Leandro CA
@Patti: Need to invent a little periscope to place over the camera...

32:31 - Joe Dale
Can someone post the link for the CC Flickr extension?

32:54 - Peggy George
so sorry Tonya! Flickr is such an awesome tool! Sounds like your district blocks anything that has a social media component. :-(

33:14 - Tonya from Missouri 3
Pretty much, but new Superintendent this year so that's why teachers have social media access now. Hoping for a postiive change this year.

33:59 - Peggy George
I just learned about the fish lens for an iphone that allows you to get a wider view when you are hosting a Periscope. Just ordered one! Learned about it from Tony Vincent!

33:59 - Tonya from Missouri 3
It is super annoying. I teach web design and graphic arts. Many resources are blog. All blogs are pretty much blocked? SERIOUSLY??

34:16 - Joe Dale
I've just added Alan Levine's javascript to the Google Doc I posted earlier which lets to create CC attribution for any FLickr image. You click it from the browser bar when you are on the particular Flickr page

34:41 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
I installed this extension for our GAFE users :D

34:42 - Carolyn Stanley
0.5% is more than what my bank gives me as interest - 0.01 interest is ridiculous!

34:52 - Marcie Hebert
Also love Google Drive Quick Create - lets you create a new doc, etc. from the extension.

35:03 - Peggy George
http://tonyv.me/lens (this is the lens for Periscope)

35:44 - Peggy George
do some extensions slow your browser down more than others?

35:46 - Joe Dale
Do we know which extensions are the worst offenders for hogging bandwidth?

35:48 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
Use SimpleExtManager to make it easy to DISable installed extensions

35:55 - Pat Swiatek
I think also Dyslexifont is a Chrome Extension?

36:48 - Peggy George
great to have a demo!!

37:09 - Patti Ruffing
Sometimes extensions don't play nicely with other programs you are running, I once had to test extensions one by one to find out which one kept my Lucid Chart from working

37:30 - Peggy George
very helpful tip Patti!!

38:14 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
I wouldN'T want anything to get in the way of Lucid Chart...or Lucid Press

38:30 - Peggy George
wow! look at that! Clearly is wonderful!

38:44 - Susie @shighley
We have had problems at school with students having extensions that interfered with some of the programs the district has purchased.

38:51 - Patti Ruffing
my offending extension was deMobo

39:13 - Peggy George
very interesting Patti! haven't used deMobo.

39:41 - Patti Ruffing
it lets you use your smart phone as a presentation tool, to advance your slides

39:56 - aunttammie
I may have to switch from tinyurl to bitly!

40:22 - Carolyn Stanley
I haven't seen much activity with QR codes lately. Are they losing momentum?

40:24 - Peggy George
what's your favorite QR code reader? I usually use i-Nigma

40:33 - Joe Dale
Me too

40:36 - Patti Ruffing
that's what i use Peggy

41:05 - Peggy George
I've seen lots of people using QR codes in Google Hangouts recently--especially places like the EdCamp Global conference

41:22 - Carolyn Stanley
Thanks!

41:34 - Patti Ruffing
they are on all our parking meters so you can pay for parking via smartphone

41:40 - Peggy George
that's incredible! didn't know that about command blue.

42:05 - Peggy George
We need Paula's Symbaloo link!! :-) Looks like an amazing resource!

42:37 - Peggy George
Announcify

43:03 - aunttammie
IT blurs the text?

43:20 - aunttammie
Oh, it must read the text.

43:20 - Carolyn Stanley
I didn't hear it read aloud.

43:30 - Lorie Moffat
it reads text, I think. We couldn't hear.

43:42 - Peggy George
haha :-)

44:03 - Susie @shighley
I just checked and saw that a couple of companies had added extensions to my browser== I didn't realize it. One was Enterprise Car Rental

44:17 - Peggy George
Maybe Paula can clarify what Announcify does :-)

44:47 - Susie @shighley
Great that she is demo-ing these for us. We should do the same in our presentations

45:11 - Peggy George
really helps to see it in action!!

45:25 - Susie @shighley
I've tried it with weird insects I've come across

45:30 - Peggy George
:-)

45:49 - Joe Dale
Split screen is a useful Chrome extension too https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/split-screen/fdomcmiaceknibplahmcgmcpdkhmbgej?hl=en

46:18 - Patti Ruffing
I just drag the tab to the side and it automatically goes to a new window

46:21 - Peggy George
the advanced search really helps to narrow things down that you might want and the CC license is so important!

46:56 - Peggy George
is split screen just for Chromebooks?

47:17 - Joe Dale
I presume it works just in the Chrome browser

47:21 - Peggy George
yes! I was so sorry they dropped readability level!!! :-(

47:45 - Peggy George
lots of questions :-)

48:33 - Peggy George
turn on your mic Paula

48:33 - Harvey
Do you have a link to your presentation slides you used today?

48:42 - @careeson Clarissa
I will be definitely be using the image drop!

48:57 - Joe Dale
I saw you had the Spritzlet bookmarklet installed. What is that? I've had a quick look and it appears interesting

49:04 - Peggy George
I can add the slides as a PDF to the Livebinder Harvey. I'll do that after the show. :-)

49:30 - Peggy George
great teacher tip!!!!

50:15 - Peggy George
if it's in quotes you will only find things that use that phrase exactly

50:23 - Tammy 1
Nice yes please show that one

50:34 - TIZIANA ANGIOLINI #2
Thanks a lot! I have added some more extensions and they work nicely! I feel we should all learn more because CHROME has a lot of extensions

51:06 - Harvey
Link to black & white copier app?

51:07 - Peggy George
There are a lot of other resources in the Livebinder for favorite extensions from other teachers/educators :-)

51:27 - Joe Dale
Save as PDF is good https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/save-as-pdf/kpdjmbiefanbdgnkcikhllpmjnnllbbc?hl=en and you can mark it up with DocHub https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dochub-view-edit-sign-pdf/adgncicbhbjfpijkdmbijninnhnmiblj

52:05 - Peggy George
but when you type in Google docs it shows you misspelled words without grammarly

52:44 - Joe Dale
True. I don't know if you can proof read in different languages in Google Docs

52:49 - Tammy 1
Do you use google docs often for your classroom

53:05 - Peggy George
guess we'll just have to use trial and error like Patti did! try one extension at a time to see if it is interfering or slowing things down

53:33 - Tammy 1
TY

53:36 - stidmama
@Paula Completely off task, but I just read through your list of how to get ready for the new school year... this is the first time I have kept a classroom (and grade!) so my first time to think about how to get ready with more than a few days' lead time. Thank you for posting your tips! And thank you for today's session.

53:38 - Peggy George
what an interesting thought Joe! never thought about proofreading in another language!

53:57 - Joe Dale
:-)

54:37 - Peggy George
Librarians are super users of QR codes so students can read/listen to book reviews by students

55:14 - Joe Dale
Has anyone used the Chirp extension in Chrome? Does it work with mobile apps? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chirp/fbakjmdiblphhpgkgnpecabekokmiano?hl=en

55:24 - Peggy George
I'm definitely going to have to go back and watch this recording again to try everything out!! So many great tips!

55:54 - Joe Dale
Does it recognise different languages?

56:05 - Carolyn Stanley
I've been playing with reverse image search - interesting - thanks, Paula

56:14 - @careeson Clarissa
I agree Peggy, lots of great tips for making life easier.

56:25 - Joe Dale
Spritz

56:27 - @plnaugle(Paula)
@stidmama Thank you. Hope it helps.

56:37 - Carolyn Stanley
Can you show us how to enable and disable extensions again?

56:39 - Joe Dale
I'll try!

56:49 - Fern
Can you spell Scripslet, please?

57:00 - Joe Dale
Spritzlet

57:19 - Susie @shighley
Thanks for rec of SimpleExtManager. Just added it and turned off extensions that I questioned

57:24 - Peggy George
I love that you can take a picture of something you don't recognize like an object or a scenic location and upload it to Google and find out what it is! Amazing!

57:46 - stidmama
Have to head out. Thanks again for a perfect topic! I am definitely better as a teacher because of these webinars.

58:01 - Peggy George
love that tip Paula!!! icon reading :-)

58:04 - Joe Dale
I love how you can upload an image to Google Drive and open it in Google Docs which turns it into text!

58:46 - Peggy George
wow Joe!!! Didn't know that! We need to have you come back and do another webinar with us!!!! :-)

58:58 - @careeson Clarissa
Thank you Paula for sharing your ideas again. I appreciate all your efforts to help us become more familiar with new technology tools.

59:09 - Carolyn Stanley
Thanks! Yeah!

59:23 - Laura Antichi
Thanks, Paula!

59:45 - Joe Dale
One Click Extension Manager is great for quickly enabling and disabling extensions

59:57 - Carolyn Stanley
If you trash them, I assume you can download them again

1:00:10 - Peggy George
Thank you so much Paula!!! Fantastic tips for all of us!!!

1:00:14 - Susie @shighley
Joe, I just heard about that yesterday in a Voxer group

1:00:24 - Patti Ruffing

1:01:19 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Thank you, Peggy.

1:01:33 - Carolyn Stanley
I'm so glad I chose the webinar over going to the Farmer's Market, Paula.

1:01:45 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I hope I didn't make your brains hurt. I know that was a lot of information at one time.

1:02:17 - Susie @shighley
Well organized, Paula

1:02:23 - Carolyn Stanley
We are so glad to have the Live Binder and the recording. We can watch you again and again. :)

1:02:53 - Susie @shighley
He does such a good job on those interviews. He does his homework!

1:03:19 - Carolyn Stanley
That is very cool!

1:03:41 - aunttammie
I'm so in love with Steve! I've learned so much from the things he's provided.
