Parent Orientation Meeting for 1:1 Program

netbookopeningIt is my hope that the 5 minute screencaptures linked below prove helpful in describing to you our 1:1 program.  This digital version of our parent meeting is intended to inform parents who are unable to attend the “live” meetings on September 16 and 23 (Eagle Hall, 6 pm).  The links below are sequential, and last approximately 5 minutes each.  In order to view all of the meeting’s content, it will be necessary to see all six links.  Thank you for “tuning in.”

  1. There needs to be a way to disable the touchpad. When my daughter is typing on the small keyboard her hand touches the touchpad and the cursor moves all over the screen and she ends up typing in the middle of her document. This is unacceptable.

  2. Nice presentation. A couple of questions:

    1) Since no drivers/software can be added, how can we enable our child to print at home?

    2) Is there any simple conversion from your open office formats to basic microsoft word formats and templates (at least then he could email to his home account and print documents off to review/work)?

    Thank you!

  3. Great questions. Probably the easiest way to print at home would be to use a thumb drive (USB). Most printers will print a document directly from the drive. If that is not an option, then using the drive to access it from your home computer – or even accessing it through Angel on your home computer – is probably the best option. Open Office and MS Office are compatible. Open Office documents should be saved as .doc files, and can be opened by MS word or a printer. Our default setting for Open Office on our netbooks should perform this anyway, but if not, the document can be easily saved as a .doc file.

  4. Hey Sean,

    Nice job at the presentation this past Wed. I think it’s great that the school had the capacity and resources to take on the initial complexity in launching this project. Once the initial bugs get worked out and the kids get used to the netbooks, I think it will be a great enhancement to their learning.

    Thanks again!
