Did you know Google Translate cannot only be used to translate your emails, documents, and random text?! Google can actually translate an entire webpage for you! Now you cannot say that THAT is not cool! Why is it so cool? Well, if you work with students and parents who prefer another language you can use Google Translate to send them a translated link of websites that you share with students or even to make a translated copy of your own website for them! Now how cool is that?! Check out how easy it is to do to! It literally takes less than a minute to do it! I'd even venture to say it takes seconds. Check it out in the video below!
Cheap, Cheapskate, etc... I prefer resourceful or frugal even, but yes I LOVE FREE! You know like in the cartoons when you have that character go "Ooooh shiny", that's me when I hear FREE! So I've been looking for resources and in my quest, I always lean towards being frugal and I have found some great resources that can be used in the classroom! So behold a list of some neat resources I have found thus far. Again as with my list of Chrome Extensions, this list will probably expand as I find and add more resources. Have fun looking at them and even more using them!

Power My Learning
I love learning, but I often run into issues of scheduling, costs, boredom, etc. So, aside from lots of reading, I find the below sites really great at picking up new skills or enhancing existing ones! A lot of these places even offer courses from top universities ---- and it's all FREE! Some of the sites do have some paid classes, but I have found they often do send out codes for anywhere up to 90% off certain courses and the selection is still pretty great. Happy learning!!
