In the world of a teacher, time is the commodity that we can't seem to get enough of. We're always looking for ways to get extra minutes in our day, especially writing teachers. Imagine having to grade or review 120 papers. How long will it take you? You need tools to give you time back. Enter the Checkmark Chrome extension by EdTechTeam.
Checkmark was developed by the fine folks at EdTechTeam to help writing teachers reclaim a small part of their lives. Once you have the extension installed, it's simply a matter of highlighting text and clicking a button to leave a comment for students.
