Prompt: Write a post about tips and tricks that help you get the most out of your days.

Here are some possible topics to help get you started:

  • What apps help you boost your productivity? Why?
  • Describe your daily routine, What could you do to improve your productivity?
  • Share the story of a time when you were more productive than you thought you would be and how you managed to achieve that.
  • Share your favorite organizational tools that help make you more productive.
  • Create a list of tips that help you stay focused on tasks.
  • What is one aspect of being productive with which you struggle?

Ever see a 360 image on Facebook and say, “I Just Had To Have It!” That was me the other day (much like this State Farm Commercial)

“I know right, I saw it and just had to have it”

I saw a post on my Facebook feed of a 360° image of the Oval Office.

I thought this would be perfect for a ThingLink VR/360° image to be tagged, heck maybe even a digital Breakout EDU. But the image would need to be uploaded into the editor. How do I save an image like this… Hmmm… I did some digging and discovered a Chrome Extension, Azimuth: Download Facebook 360° Photos and Videos. One note, when going through the steps of downloading the image, make sure you are on the image URL and choose to download it as an equirectangular image.

Let me know if you have tried this extension and what kind of an image you have downloaded.

      Cathtemple, I appreciate the compliment, but productivity didn’t have anything to do with it. Just good timing!

    I think there must be a Chrome extension for everything. Love your concise and interesting post.

      Thank you bpd3super for checking out my post. I concur, there appears to be just like the phrase “there’s an app for that”, an extension for that.

        Absolutely! I could spend days investigating the Chrome extensions… your post makes me think I need to explore them more. I know what I know, but there’s plenty that I don’t know!

          Alicia, you said a phrase that I use often in my district, “You don’t know, what you don’t know.”
