We are in the process of developing a Technology Help Site that can be used as a reference for our teachers and students with laptops. We just posted a page with some places on the internet you can locate technology tutorials. Here are sites you can visit.
- ThinkTutuorial – a site providing free, easy to follow tutorials on a variety of web services and software, including Pages and Numbers.
- LearnItIn5 – Learn it in 5 is a powerful library of how-to videos, produced by technology teachers, for the purpose of helping teachers and students create classroom strategies for today’s 21st century’s digital classroom. The step-by-step how-to videos walk teachers through Web 2.0 technology, demonstrating how to use Web 2.0 applications like blogs, social networks, podcasts, interactive videos, wikis, slide sharing and much more.
- makeuseof – This site offers free downloadable ebooks and cheat sheets for a wide variety of software and web applications.
- Smart Notebook Tutorials – From the Smart Board site, this page contains tips and tricks for using the Smart Notebook 10 software and Lesson Activity Toolkit. The Smart Notebook software is available on all teacher and student machines.
What other information could we include on the STSD Technology Help Site that would be helpful to you?
Two answers were just posted to the STSD Technology Help Site – FAQ page about using a printer and printing wirelessly from the laptops. Please visit the site if you have similar questions. If you have another question or need support, you can always submit it using the Support Request form found on the home page of the STSD Technology Help Site. (You will need to log in with your Falcon Apps login information to see the form.) We will get to your request as soon as we can!
