3 Tech Tips to Kick Off 2019!

Every month our staff will be publishing a post sharing some of their favorite tech tips! For January we focus on leveraging bookmarking in Google Chrome, creating online lessons, and protecting your privacy while searching.

#1 Save Space on Your Chromebook Bookmarks Bar!

Are you frustrated at the lack of space available on the Bookmarks Bar? To solve this simply delete the name of the bookmark when you are adding it to your Bookmarks Bar. In doing this, you will only see the “Favicon,” or logo, of the website.

#2 Turn Any Website into an Interactive Online Lesson

The InsertLearning Chrome Extension is a great way to teach current events or anything on the web. This extension provides you with a toolbar enabling you to make notations,  insert questions or even add discussions right within a web-based resource. There are even templates to help you get started.

#3 Try Using DuckDuckGo as a Search Engine to Protect Online Privacy

Use the search engine DuckDuckGo to take back your privacy. DuckDuckGo has a business model where they don’t need to track your searches, store or share your personal information to make money. Everything you search for using DuckDuckGo is private.
