Here’s a trick that will come in handy for innovative educators who have times when it becomes helpful to have lots of tabs easily accessible. For example, say you are having several students present one day and you don’t want to have to click open each presentation or connect and disconnect various devices from the display station. Or, maybe there are tabs that you use each time you conduct a particular class. And, everybody has the usual tabs that they need each day.
Using Chrome bookmarks, you can put all those tabs in a folder, then have them instantly open at your command.
Now you don’t have to worry about what device you are on or if your computer restarts or if someone accidentally closes a window. You have a tool to quickly and easily open all the tabs you want.
What do you think? How could you see using this strategy to streamline the work you do?
