Clean up your Resources Easily with Clean Print and Save Extension

I am not a fan of printing especially in an age of digital learning.  However, I do think there are just so may good resources out on the web to teach current, relevant, engaging information to students that teachers choose not to use for a variety of reasons.  Sometimes the article or webpage contains so much information that the important information is hard to focus upon, sometimes it contains information within the text that is too technical or difficult for students, other times a teacher indicates that they just cannot get it to print or save the way that they want it without ads, other information, etc.  That is where Clean Print and Clean Save come into play.  This extension for Google Chrome allows you not only to exclude information on the page with the click of a button, but it also allows you to change the font size to make the information readable to all students. You can add notes, grayscale text, and the frame offers a realtime page estimate on your editing so that you can always determine the length of the article you are preparing.  Once you are finished, simply save to PDF, Google Docs, Dropbox, print or even share through social media and email.  Super simple and super useful in the classroom!  Great tutorial to give you an idea of how easy this is to use:
