  • 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.

  • Oncourse Classroom Assessment

    This school year, our teachers and students in upper elementary and high school have the opportunity to work online using Chromebooks and OnCourse Classroom. Teachers create online assignments through Oncourse Classroom for students to interact with on Chromebooks or desktop computers. Presenting class assessment in this way provides students with the opportunity to practice engaging with technology enhanced test items. Working online in the Oncourse Classroom environment will help better prepare students for testing in the spring.

    Pictured above are the 6th grade students in Mrs. Milton's ELA class at Vinyard Elementary.

  • STEM Pirate Adventures

    It was an adventurous way to spend a Saturday morning at the TPSS Technology Center! Local teachers rotated through pirate-themed stations to explore STEM activities to bring back to the classroom. This crew worked together to print pirate loot on a 3D printer, build a pirate ship propelled by a Sphero Ball to carry coins across water, design a trap using LittleBit robotics to alert pirates when their treasure chest was opened, and much more!

    The technology department enjoys sharing new ways for teachers to integrate tech into their cross curricular activities.

  • DCR Hurricane Breakout

    The fourth grade students of Mrs. Menona's class at DC Reeves participated in a Hurricane Breakout to test their knowledge on emergency preparedness. Students solved clues to discover the combination of various locks. As the combinations were discovered by each team, the locks were able to be removed from the box. Students had to know how to read latitude and longitude on a map to track a storm, use cardinal directions to plan the best evacuation route, and use inference skills to solve several puzzles.  This game was unique because all 28 students worked in seperate teams to breakout of a single box. Inside of the box were materials and resources the students could use to get ready for the hurricane season.
