Google Tone {To the Rescue!}

It sure have been awhile since my last Bright Ideas Post..but I am so excited to be linking up for this month's June Bright Ideas Hop!

Do you use technology in your classroom? 

If you answered yes to the above question you have probably experienced the headache of explaining, redirecting, waiting, and trouble shooting your 28 little angels to a certain website (where you plan to begin your lesson or activity). During this time, you have probably also witnessed little voices shouting out and hands being raised asking "Wait..what was I supposed to type?" or "What was I supposed to click after this step?". 

Today I have the solution to this problem! 

Google Tone allows teachers to send webpages directly to their students through a sound wave. 
Accessing a site will now be easy and quick! No more wasted time.

Here's how to get started:
Download Google Tone from the Chrome Web Store.
After downloading, you will get a little blue megaphone icon added next to your URL address bar. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
 I hope that this tip can save you some precious time in your classroom :)
