Happy Friday!



This week, we have two new Google tidbits to share. First, Google Chat in Gmail has been upgraded to a new look with circles for avatar pictures. The look resembles Google + and should happen for everyone over the next few weeks.

New Chat Look:

Secondly, a wonderful Chrome extension called Read&Write for Google is now available with all advanced features for FREE to teachers! Read&Write works with Google Docs to provide additional supports for students including highlighting, vocabulary help, read aloud features, translator, and access to talking and picture dictionaries.



To unlock the premium features of this Chrome extension:
  1. Install it from the Chrome Store by clicking HERE and clicking on the +Free button. 
  2. You must register at http://rw.texthelp.com/drive/home/RegisterTeacher with your school email to unlock the premium features.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
