Introducing Sutori!

Many teachers have been using HSTRY, a free web-based, timeline tool. HSTRY has recently been re-branded as Sutori. Sutori is an easy way for students to create and share digital stories by expanding the timeline capabilities of HSTRY. Check out Sutori as a storytelling presentation tool that will engage your students whether writing a virtual essay, play or research report!

I highly recommend that you check out Sutori and if you are a former HSTRY user, you can read all about the changes on their blog post.

Creating Multiple Chrome Profiles to Use Multiple Google Accounts

At the beginning of the year we discussed "logging into Chrome" and the benefits of doing so - being able to access your bookmarks, apps, and extensions.

Many teachers and students have multiple Google Accounts - one for work/school and one for personal use. In order to manage multiple accounts, Google has built this functionality into the Chrome browser.  Users can create multiple Chrome profiles that are tied to different Google accounts. For more information on how to create multiple Chrome profiles, click the link below which is from a great blog that I follow called Free Technology for Teachers by Richard Byrne.
