With one simple tone...


Sound is pretty amazing. Play that one song on Spotify and it lifts your whole day. You hear the voice of a loved one and you feel comforted. Sound familiar?

This idea was something we heard about at ChromeCamp this past weekend.

Did you know that you can also use sound to help the student computers in your room find a website in a flash?



As you see in this video the process is very simple. To get started there are just two things you need to do.

ONE
Install the Google Tone Chrome extension on your computer and the student laptops.

The computer sending the signal, the teacher laptop, will need to have the sound turned on. The computers receiving the signal, the student laptops, will need to have the mics turned on so they can hear the signal.

TWO
Open the website you want all your students on.
Click the little megaphone icon in the upper right corner. A tone will sound alerting the other computers to go to the site. 

This will appear on the laptops with the extension installed. All the student needs to do is click and the site will appear.
