Need to study for a particular lesson in school? Or do you need to work on a research paper or project? As students, we have no way of staying away from all those requirements that we need to submit in order for us to pass our subjects in school. And so, we do everything in order to accomplish all those projects and use the very helpful Internet to work on those.
If you still don’t know, Google Chrome actually has several extensions on how you, as a student, can efficiently work on your projects. It will even make your School life easier! So here are 10 Chrome Extensions that you can utilize as you work on your projects in school.
1. Google books
You can read any book using any device, and you can also read it anywhere – on or off campus. What’s best in this extension is that you can highlight important texts and also make notes on that stuff that you discover while reading.
2. Things to do
Do you have the tendency to forget doing the things that you have to work on for school? There are actually several Chrome extensions that you can use! These are RemindMe, StickyNotes, and myHomework. What’s good in the last extension is that it’s also available on Android and iPhone.
If you have a group project and you can’t have the time to meet and work together, do it virtually! Cacoo is an extension that lets you make illustrations and even collaborate with your group mates on a real time. What’s good in illustrations or diagrams is that it can be edited by several people at the same time.
4. Split Screen
Of course, when we’re working on our school projects we don’t stick with one site, we frequently open multiple sites and compare and contrast the information we get for each sites. Split screen helps you by making your comparisons easier. From the word itself, it splits the screen so that you can easily check the sites that you’re using. It’s also best when you have to watch demo videos while working on your project.
It’s a best practice for student researchers to quote and cite sources for their research papers or even theses, and Chrome can offer you Copy without formatting and GradeGuru Citation Manager Extensions. The former lets you copy texts without having to deal with document-wrecking formatting, which is perfect for quotation and gathering research/information. The latter will help you work on your references and citations correctly.
Having a hard time looking for your files? You can store your documents in the cloud and no need to worry for crashed hard drives! It has 5GB free storage.
Read later fast can let you save links or tabs for quick access and the Session buddy of Chrome Extension can save your current sessions.
Thesaurus and Google dictionary is a big help for every student’s research paper. The former can help you look for synonyms and antonyms, while the latter can provide you the correct spelling and definition of a certain word.
9. Stay Focusd
The StayFocusd Extension blocks out sites that kill your productivity like FaceBook and Twitter. It will only allow you to spend time with those types of websites for a limited time and when time is up, those sites will be blocked for the rest of the day. The Pomodoro technique, on the other hand, will give you a 5-minute break period while working on your projects.
