In this week’s #OneNewThing, I am excited to share an extension that I found for Chrome: Black Menu for Google! First, I have to admit – I have quite the addiction for Google extension. I have way too many extensions on my browser but, I swear they all serve a purpose!
Anyways, the Black Menu for Google is an extension that gives you quick access to your favorite Google services with a simple drop-down menu. Check it out!

As always, I want to bring it back to a pedagogical focus. Here are some ways this can support you and your students in the classroom:
- Time Saver – Teachers and students can navigate GSuite quickly and effectively without multiple tabs.
- Student Research – As students are conducting research for assignments, they can search within the extension, rather than another tab.
- Promotes GSuite Apps – There are so many underutilized GSuite tools. By using this extension, it is easy to find and begin using tools that you may not have explored yet.
