Tab Resize allows users to split their screens and resize tabs. Great for side by side comparisons, multiple monitors, research, and organization. No more flipping between tabs or windows. With Tab Resize, you can customize to fit your needs.

Video use within my classroom or in presentations helps to engage an audience, tell a story, or transition into a different activity. This Chrome extension allows the user to download videos (if legal) or collect them into a library to access easily and without distraction on the rest of the page. Use Video Downloader Professional to keep all of your videos in one place!

One of my new favorites! SpeechPad is an extension that allows diction into any text field on the web. Holding down the Control key in a text box and clicking on the trackpad, Speechpad appeared as an option (see image below). It also has a “settings” page where you can designate the specific language spoken! Perfect for foreign language class innovations! I tried it out on twitter and it worked on the first try!
