Have a link or resource you want to send to students or parents and the URL is long or clunky? Simply visit the site you wish to share and click on the goo.gl URL shortener to the right of the omnibox (where you type a website address). You will be able to customize the short URL or that page to make it easy for people to visit and remember. Once you set the URL it will stay!
The goo.gl URL shortener is already installed in your Google Chrome browser! Just click it once your at the page you want to shorten. Try this shortened URL now! http://goo.gl/RWto7E
About Tech Bytes
This idea stemmed from a Twitter chat with the my #connectEDtl PLN when we were talking about how better to break down technology in to simpler chunks. Cate Tolnai from Loomis USD decided to partner on this to put it in to action! This is true collaboration in action!
