Create and Edit PDF Files
Office has toyed around with PDF files in past versions, but this time around Microsoft got serious. In the past you could save as PDF, but now you can actually edit. The new Word 2013 allows you to open PDF files, edit them there, and then save them as either DocX files or PDFs.
To save a file as PDF simply click “Save” and then use the dropdown menu to choose the .PDF option. It is one of the many file types you can choose here.
Let’s flip our instruction for a fun day of learning!
FlipFlop PD is a mini conference designed by teachers for teachers. We will spend our day rotating through a variety of sessions to watch our fellow Tangi teachers share how they use technology in the classroom. This conference is geared for all grade levels, all educators, and all subjects taught! Join us for the opportunity to brighten your curriculum with the latest Ed Tech ideas, participate in discussions with fellow teachers, and earn the chance to win technology gear to bring back to your students!
Visit our FlipFlop PD page for more information, and/or to submit a lesson proposal to present at the conference.
Those selected to present will receive additional tech points.
