Tech Tip Tuesday: Google Apps vs Extensions


Lets clarify the definition of an app and an extension while using the Google Chrome browser.

App

  • Applications and websites that open directly in your browser
  • It can be found when you open a new tab
Extension
  • It is an extension of the current browser
  • It gives more functionality to the current webpage
  • A small tool that runs in the background
  • It can be found on the right side of your tool bar

Here is a list of apps and extensions that would be helpful in a classroom environment.  The user needs to be using the Google Chrome browser. These apps and extensions can be found at the Google Chrome Web Store.
