Getting Google Day!

On Getting Google Day, (Friday the 4th of September) the awesome 5/6s taught us (the amazing 3/4s) some really helpful skills that we could use for our ICT lessons. There were six workshops in total, and each student in the middle level were chosen to go to two workshops, I went to:
*Chrome Extensions 2 (more known as Awesome Extensions)

There were many other workshops which are:
*Chrome Extensions 1
*Google Keep
*Google sites

At the Sketchpad workshop, we learned skills on the app which we can use for Maths problems E.G groups of. You can also use it for just some fun when you have some free time at school or when you are at home and bored.

At the Awesome Extensions workshop, we learned about the extensions:
Google Dictionary
1-click timer
Recently closed tabs
Adblock for Youtube.

Google Dictonary is good because you don’t have to to go on on Google, then search up “dictionary” and then click on the website and then type the word in, and maybe in that amount of time, you can forget the word you don’t know the definition to, and then when you remember it again, you have to redo all those steps, wouldn’t that be annoying!!!

With 1-click timer, you don’t have to search up “Timer” and then insert your desired numbers and then just press start, you press the 1-click timer button, and drag the little arrow to your desired time E.G fifty-five minutes.
After your desired amount of time, it will alert you that your desired time E.G fifty-five minutes, it will alert that your time is up by playing a sound that you can choose.

On Recently Closed Tabs, you can click the button and it will show you your closed tabs, this is a very good extension because if you accidentally close a tab, you can get it back in a flash.

With Adblock for Youtube, it stops all those really frustrating adds, when you are waiting for a video to start, or in the middle of the video, it puts an end to all of that and the ads that are none of your beeswax!!!

So those are all of the workshops that I went to and all the information about them.

What do you think is the most helpful extension out of the ones that I told you about?
