Beyond Chalk came on site today (March 10, 2011) to provide a full days Mac training which was well received by Grades 10, 11 and 12. The afternoon training session took care of all our Secondary Teachers, some of whom have already had some training provided, see previous posts in this blog.
Three Similar Session, tailored to suit the audience, together with an invitation to the all staff. “Just a note if you have a spare you are most welcome to join in with the students and learn what they learn.”

Back to Basics
The focus of these three sessions was about starting at Ground Zero and working up, our Macbook program for one Student and Teacher has been active for one School Term.
We addressed things like:
Holding down the Shift Key while adjusting the volume will increase / decrease sound silently.
Setting > Speech > “Speak selected text when holding selected Key” Set to ~ key for reading selected text, then highlight any text and have the computer read it back to you.
Command + Space Bar takes you to Spotlight
