It’s no secret that teachers are always looking for ways to save time on tasks and spend more time doing what we do best: helping students succeed. One way to do this is through the use of time saving Chrome extensions.

With Google Chrome, you can customize your experience using time-saving Chrome extensions that extend the functionality of your Chrome browser, increasing your productivity and helping you reclaim that all too precious commodity: time.

Here are some of the most popular time-saving Chrome extensions that you can start using today in your classroom.

Tab Scissors

This extension splits a window into two at the selected tab, splitting 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.

This extension works great with Tab Glue which will glue all those pesky Chrome windows back together.

Save to Google Drive

With the Save to Google Drive extension, your Chrome browser connects to your Drive to let you explore the web and save useful resources directly to your Drive.

You can later rename these files, share with colleagues, and organize them into folders that best suit your needs for your work.

Cluster is a tab management extension that lets you quickly view all your tabs in Chrome then search and categorize them.

You don’t have to search through all your open tabs for your gradebook, assignments, or resources to stay on track. Cluster gives you the power to organize them for easy access and exploration.

Another useful extension for those of you using Google Classroom is the Share to Classroom extension.
