Split Screen for Access to Multiple Tabs At Once

 


Split screen saves the students and yourself from the hassle of toggling between tabs. 

Split screen for Chromebooks:

First, the students open the tabs that you want them to use.  Once they have them open they click on one tab and pull it off the others creating 2 separate windows.  On this window they click alt ] (next to P) and it will move it to the right side and 50% of the screen. Next, click on the other tab and do alt [ and it will move that tab to the left and take 50% of their screen. In between the two tabs there is a dark section, they can click and drag on this to make one side larger or smaller.

Spilt Screen for Laptops:

If you or your students are using a laptop, I suggest you get a window tiler extension.  The tiler does the same thing as above except it's a click and can do up to 4 screens.  To get the window tiler extension go to the Chrome Web Store, I use the one pictured above. Once it's added you can put it on your toolbar for quick and easy access.  When you want to use it, you pull the tab(s) off to make separate windows and click it and it will resize your tabs. 

I encourage my students to use so they have access to the calculator and the assignment.  I use it almost daily but my especially when inputting grades. I pull up the assignment on one side and the grade book on the other.  

I hope this helps you and your students.

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
