What is a Google Chrome extension?
A Google Chrome extension is a small software program that adds extra functionality to the Chrome browser, allowing you to personalize and optimize your browsing experience. These extensions are designed to enhance productivity, organization, and overall efficiency in various tasks.
To install a Chrome extension, simply visit the Chrome Web Store, search for the desired extension, click on the “Add to Chrome” button, and confirm the installation by clicking “Add extension” in the permission prompt. Once installed, the extension will be accessible from your browser toolbar, and you can start enjoying its features.
One important note: Schools sometimes say “no” to Chrome extensions for teachers and won’t let you install anything onto your device. They want to keep everyone’s data safe and sound and to review extensions before allowing anyone to download them.

5 ChatGPT Chrome Extensions for Teachers
The Google Chrome extensions on this list include a combination of extensions that are specifically for use with ChatGPT and ones that can be used more generally but also work well with ChatGPT. Since ChatGPT is new on the scene, some of these Chrome extensions are new, too. That means they may require more frequent updates or a better alternative might become available.

With the Promptheus Chrome extension, you can communicate more efficiently with ChatGPT. By simply pressing the spacebar, this extension allows you to use your voice instead of typing. This function lets you have faster and more fluid conversations with ChatGPT. Promptheus eliminates the limitations of typing speed, providing a hands-free option for multitasking educators. With the power of voice recognition, teachers can now access ChatGPT’s AI assistance more quickly and naturally, ultimately saving valuable time and effort in their daily tasks.
The Text Blaze Chrome extension is a powerful tool designed to streamline the workflow of busy teachers. It lets you create custom templates for frequently used phrases and ChatGPT commands. This time-saving extension goes beyond basic copy-and-paste functionality and works anywhere in Chrome – including ChatGPT. By using Text Blaze to create shortcuts for common ChatGPT prompts, you can avoid the tedious process of repeatedly typing the same commands.
ChatGPT in Google Sheets and Docs
The GPT for Sheets and Docs Chrome extension integrates ChatGPT seamlessly into Google Sheets and Google Docs. So you can access AI-assisted writing capabilities directly within these popular productivity tools. Built on the powerful OpenAI ChatGPT and GPT-3 models, this extension offers a wide range of text-related tasks. This includes all the ways you might already use ChatGPT for writing, editing, searching, translating, summarizing, outlining, and explaining.
YouTube Summary with ChatGPT
The YouTube Summary with ChatGPT Chrome extension is an excellent tool for busy teachers. It provides quick summaries of YouTube videos using OpenAI’s ChatGPT AI technology. By utilizing this free extension, educators can save time and expedite their learning process as they search for relevant content for their classrooms. Additionally, the extension allows users to view and access video summaries directly from the video thumbnails while browsing YouTube. This convenient feature enables teachers to swiftly identify the most useful videos for an upcoming lesson or assignment.
Evernote Web Clipper
Like Text Blaze, Evernote Web Clipper isn’t made specifically to integrate with ChatGPT but is certainly helpful. The Evernote Web Clipper is a useful browser extension for busy teachers. It lets you save and organize interesting content discovered on the web directly into an Evernote account. This includes any responses from ChatGPT you want to save, tag, and organize into your Evernote account. By keeping all these resources in one accessible location, you can streamline your research and lesson-planning processes. If you don’t use Evernote, a similar web clipping tool called Notebook is an alternative.
