More Google Goodness!


Last week I shared the Docs add-ons EasyBib and Table of Contents. Joyce Valenza highlights more of the most useful Google Apps Add-Ons for education in her NeverEnding Search blog:

Among the launch partners of most use in classrooms and libraries are:

  • EasyBib’s Bibliography Creator: allows you to search EasyBib and generate citations in MLA, APA or Chicago Manual of Style formats.
  • Thesaurus: highlight a word and synonyms appear in a sidebar box to the right of your document
  • UberConference: seamlessly organize a Web conference within Google Docs
  • Table of Contents: creates a clickable table of contents in a sidebar box
  • OpenClipArt: Find clipart from among more than 50,000 images and click on an image to insert it into your document
  • Kaizena Shortcut: opens your document immediately in the audio feedback app
  • ProWriting Aid:  offers a plagiarism, redundant phrases and grammar check
  • Template Gallery: allows you to select document formats, for instance: resumes, letters, invoices, calendars, planners, attendance sheets
  • Track changes: Manage the editing process when collaborating on a document
  • LucidChart: create and insert flowcharts, mind maps, and diagrams directly into your document
  • Calculator: a simple calculator appears in the right sidebar for help with basic math

Note:  Add-ons are not available for Google Spreadsheets unless you’ve installed the Google Sheets refresh.
