Play store / Web store
The Google play store is a central platform where students can download apps. This differs from the online Play store as the Highland Council controls the apps available here. This is a teacher led platform and the more teachers requests for apps the more will become available here.
Google Chrome Extensions are “applications that run inside the Chrome browser and provide additional functionality, integration with third party websites or services, and customised browsing experiences.” While there is some grey area between Google apps, extensions, and simply shortcuts to websites, the right extensions can turn your browser into a Swiss-army knife of utility and efficiency.
