Scrible Edu Pro for Granite Students and Teachers
The Scrible Toolbar extension for Chrome has been pushed out to the Chromebooks and Chrome accounts of all secondary students in Granite School District. Any other users can also add the extension by going to the Chrome Web Store and searching for the “Scrible Toolbar” extension or by using this link.
Once the extension is installed, click on it and sign in by choosing the Google icon as shown in the screenshot below. Sign in using your district @granitesd.org Google account to access the Edu Pro edition of Scrible.
When you first sign up, you’ll need to authorize Scrible to access the requested permissions and then complete your account information. Educators should indicate they will use Scrible at “School (Educator)” and students should choose “School (Student).”
