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.

Hour of Code

Fourth grade students in Mrs. Kirby and Mrs. Tullier's computer lab at DC Reeves began working on learning to code in school. The students first mapped out algorithms on paper before bringing the concept to the computer. Through the website www.code.org, students have the opportunity to learn basic coding skills that can be applied to future computer science concepts.

The students plan to participate in an "Hour of Code," which is held internationally during the week of December 5th - 11th.
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 45 languages for all ages. Visit the Hour of Code website to learn more! 

Tangipahoa Parish School System talented art students created artwork for the new Technology Building located on South Morrison Blvd. The artwork hangs in the hallways and adds a creative and beautiful atmosphere to the center. Students from Hammond High Magnet School, Loranger High School, Ponchatoula High School, and Independence High School participated in this endeavor and were treated to a reception in their honor.
  • Code.org workshop

    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.
