This week is a super quick tip about a free Chrome Extension that will change your life. Literally.
Remember back in the day, when we would clip an article from the newspaper, make copies, and write questions on the board for students to answer?
Well, you can do it all digitally now with insertlearning.com. It’s so simple.
1. Find your article.
2. Click on the “IL” extension.
3. Pick a template if you want (all this does is give you questions and directions to copy and paste, which I love because it makes life easier).
4. Highlight, insert questions and sticky notes, and even insert videos!
5. Grab the link to share with your students or share it directly to Google Classroom.
6. Student responses will go to your dashboard.
***A couple of things to keep in mind first–your students must have the extension and they must join your IL class (you can create as many as you want). They will join with a pin just like they do in Google Classroom.***
It’s so easy and such a great tool to get our students reading and analyzing more current events and primary sources. And, since the internet is at your disposal, it’s perfect for any subject.
