Tab Scissors - Useful Chrome Extension for Multitasking

​​Tab Scissors:  This extension splits a window into two at the selected tab.

This simple tab organization tool divides one window into two.

If you have at least two tabs in the selected Chrome window, it will split that window into two smaller side-by-side windows. All the tabs on the left side of the selected tab will stay in the left window, and the rest will move to the window on the right.

It is especially helpful for those who have lots of tabs opened at a time.

Classcraft ~ Make Your Classes Unforgettable!

Don’t change what you teach, supercharge how you teach it.

Powerful Tools To Drive Engagement

Classcraft is a free online, educational role-playing game that teachers and students play together in the classroom. By using many of the conventions traditionally found in games today, students can level up, work in teams, and earn powers that have real-world consequences. Acting as a gamification layer around any existing curriculum, the game transforms the way a class is experienced throughout the school year.

Classcraft can be summed up as ClassDojo meets World of Warcraft.

Students play in teams and pick from three unique classes (warrior, mage, healer), each of which come with their own health, AP (ability points), and powers.

Classcraft isn’t right for every teacher or every classroom. For those of you who are looking for more adventure type incentives for older students - give it a try! (It's free.)

Classcraft integrates seamlessly into your classroom work flow.
  • Keep assignments and resources organized with interactive forums.
  • Assign points for students directly in the forums when they answer questions correctly and help each other out.
  • Give parents a clear view of how their child is participating in your classes with integrated student analytics.
