Eno Board Training Videoes

Submitted 4/17/2014 in Announcements

Hello educators,

If you use an ēno board for instruction, you may find these training videos useful. They were made in Mary Adley's room on April 14 at a training session conducted by Amber Lane, our rep for ēno/Steelcase (they are now the same company she reports).

In Part 1, Amber explains how to set up your laptop display so that it is compatible with the LCD projector you are using with an ēno board. She also shows what it looks like when that is not set up correctly. There are more basics about using the stylus, the magnetic tool strip, other ways to access the tools, use of the keyboard tool, and how to save images.

In Part 2, Amber shares websites with useful teaching resources for all content areas. We see Katie Hall demonstrating as Amber leads her through various uses of the eno board.

Creating/Using Folder in GMail

Submitted 11/7/2012 in FAQs


To create folders in GMail select the checkbox next to an email that you wish to move into a folder. At the top click on the image that looks like a folder and select "Create New". Put in the name of the folder and click on the "Create" button and the folder is now created, with the email that you selected in it.

 

 

To move emails into the folders that you have created you have three options:


Option 1: Drag the email into the folder when you are looking at your list of emails.

Option 2: Select the checkboxes of the emails that you would like to move and at the top of the window select the image of the folder and select the folder that you wish to move the email(s) into.

Option 3: While reading the email at the top of the window select the image of the folder and select the folder that you wish to move the email(s) into.

Google Docs - Upload & Sharing

Submitted 9/20/2012 in FAQs

 

We have had many questions this year about using Google Docs, which is fantastic. Since we are now using GMail you all now have access to Google Docs by going to (amongst many other ways) http://docs.carrabec.org
 
One question that we have had a lot of is if documents that you have created on your computer can be uploaded toGoogle Docs. You can upload almost any document that you have on your computer to Google Docs for easy sharing and editing. Google can take Pages, Office Documents(MS, Open, Libre, etc), Spreadsheets(MS, Open, Libre, etc), Presentations (MS, Open, Libre, etc), and many other formats that you are using and convert them.

Thank you and I hope that you all have a wonderful day.
