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.
We have finalized the process of moving everyone’s “My Documents” from servers here in Tangi to One Drive in Office 365 in the Cloud. You can now access all of your files from any computer with internet access!
All four of the TPSS Instructional Technology Facilitators attended theCode.org workshop held in Baton Rouge recently and came away with some fantastic resources to share with Tangi Teachers and students. Code.org's vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Code.org increases diversity in computer science by reaching students of all backgrounds where they are at their skill-level, in their schools, and in ways that inspire them to keep learning. TPSS will offer a free Code.org workshop this summer for our teachers at the Technology Center which will hopefully inspire our teachers to offer these opportunities to our students.
