Productivity: Tips and tricks for using your Mac
Log in using your Apple ID. Start with either Badges for Mac or Badges for iPad. You will see a series, they are in a suggested order. Choose Getting start for example. when you get to the page, scroll down and download the iBook to read. when you have read it and practiced the various tasks, take the 5 question quiz to earn your first badge. By the way, you can take the quiz as many times as you want. I do this in my tech class at KSU and my students indicated it takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete each badge.
I guarantee you will learn a ton, even experienced users will learn some new tricks.

Visual Information through Infographics
What is an Infographic and how can it be used in the classroom?
Infographics are visual representations of information. They can include numbers, text, images, or any combination of the three. Just as in traditional writing assignments, infographs can take on any of the various rhetorical modes — informative, instructive, descriptive, persuasive, etc. Infographics provide authors with a quick way to convey a lot of information.
Want to make a seemingly mundane topic more interesting? Check out this infographic on cremation. Who knew that you could have your ashes stuffed into a teddy bear for your loved ones? Definitely, something to consider. Notice that this infographic does include sources, although they may not be in MLA or APA format. This, though, is something you can require of your students if you assign an infographic writing assignment.
