Google Tasks

Tasks have been a part of Gmail and Google Calendar for a while, but I have always found going into the app to be an obstacle to using the tool. With the extension, the task list is always in front of you.

Google Keep has become my go-to note taking app not only because it syncs between different devices, also because it communicates with Gmail and Google Calendar. Google Keep also has potential for student research projects.


Google Similar Pages

Google Similar Pages is an extension I just came across. This extension does what it says: it finds similar pages to the one you are currently reading. Google Similar Pages seems to be a great tool for research.

Thesaurus is a tool that does one function but does it incredibly well. To find synonyms and antonyms of a word you come across, simply highlight the word and this extension will show them to you.

Stay Focused

This is an extension I would like to see more students use. You can input websites into Stay Focused and put a daily time limit for those sites. When you have spent that amount of time on a site, Stay Focused blocks the site for the rest of the day.

There is a way to turn it off if you need more time on a day, but it reminds you of what you are doing.


There are many extensions educators can recommend students to use and this list if by no means complete. What extension have you recommended?
