Microsoft Office 2013

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.

  • PhotoBooth in Colette Taillon's classroom
    Hammond Westside Montessori teacher, Colette Taillon, used a Photo Booth app on her iPad to create PhotoBooth pictures for her students and their families on Meet 'n Greet night at the beginning of the 2014-15 school year.  Mrs. Taillon used an iPad holder that fit on a tripod and along with a few props, the fun began!!  Pictured above are Mr. Terran Perry, Principal of Amite High School, and his family. The first grader Terran is in Mrs. Taillon's room this year.

Technology Spotlight

 Mrs. Wilson's 3rd Grade classroom at Amite Elementary was buzzing with excitement as the students used the Socrative App to take a grammar quiz on the iPads. Socrative lets teachers engage their students with educational activities on mobile devices. Through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization, teachers can guage the whole class' current level of understanding.

Through a generous grant made possible through Donors Choose and Autodesk, Jamie Mixon's students at D.C. Reeves Elementary are able to explore the world of 3-D printing. A wide variety of projects can be made using the Maker Bot 3-D printer and files from the Maker Bot Thingaverse website.  Students can also use Maker Bot software to create their own own original designs.
