FUN File Management
Do you have too many papers? Are your file cabinets bursting open? Are you having trouble finding that Microsoft Word document you JUST typed out? Are you curious about the "cloud?" What is the difference between my h-drive and the cloud anyway? Transitioning from paper to electronic documents can be a challenge and sometimes the great organizational techniques we use for paper just do not work well with electronic files. This section will provide answers to the questions above as well as introduce you to a few tools that can help you along the way.
Up first, lets review how to save a file to your h-drive. Remember, your h-drive is storage that you can access from a school computer on school grounds (you have to be connected to the network). It is not available at home or on the guest wifi network. For a refresher, check out this quick slideshow showing how to access your h-drive, as things look a bit different with our new Office 2013. And for your students who are confused with the new look of Office 2013, watch this slideshow for students to help them save to their student numbers!
