23 Bootcamp: Mac or Windows? These new laptops will allow you to boot up in either the Mac or Windows operating system (OS)Default for Elementary/Middle School: Mac 10.6Default for High School: Windows 7To switch to the other OS, hold down the Option key while starting your computer- click the arrow under the OSClick on the Arrow below the disk image
25 Changes to Teacher Login All staff and student accounts will use their Network AccountThe Network Account has been referred to as your remote ASPEN at home loginHigh schools and administrators are currently using the Network AccountThis is the first step in a move toward a single sign-on.
26 Network AccountHCPSS is moving toward an Active Directory system meaning that one username and password can log the user into many different systems.Wikispaceshcpss.wikispaces.netDEStreamingInroadsYour Network Account username and password will give you access to:Your assigned teacher laptop (Mac OS)Your assigned teacher laptop (Windows OS)Lab & building computers on the networkRemote Access (https://ra.hcpss.org) (to use Aspen from home)Aspenhttps://aspen.hcpss/orgDocument RepositoryFirst Class /CLCIntranetOver time additional functions will be added to AD. Today everything listed above requires individual login credentials.You must be at school and on the network to change your passwords.
27 Change Password – Preferred Method (Mac) You can change your password by going to the system preferences - AccountsAfter changing your pw:Logout and login with new password while connected to the network (Ethernet cable plugged into the wall jack) so you can login from homeIf you have Windows installed:Username and password are the same for each OSYou need to logout and login with new password while connected to the networkNote: Your login Remote/Home Aspen password is the same as your Mac and Windows login password.Changing the password for one will change it for all of these. Aspen from school is separate from this.
28 Password Change – Alternative You will need to change your password by going to the following website: https://changepw.hcpss.orgAfter changing your pw:Logout and login with new password while connected to the network (Ethernet cable plugged into the wall jack) so you can login from homeIf you have Windows installed:Username and password are the same for each OSYou need to logout and login with new password while connected to the network
29 Home Directory FolderDesktop items and items in the Home Directory are only available on the local machine.In order to access files from other computers when logged on to the network, those files must be dragged to a Network folder (Network Home, Campus, Hand In/Out).House = Local
30 Network Home FolderAll teachers have a folder on the server called “network home” and is represented by their login name.This server has 5GB of space and can only be accessed at school.All students have a folder on the server called “network home” and is represented by their login name.This server has 1GB of space and can only be accessed at school.
31 Campus FolderThe CAMPUS folder is shared server space that can be accessed by any teacher on the instructional network.
32 Hand-In /Hand-Out Folders Hand In folder can be viewed by icon by everyone – but only the individual students can open up the document and edit. If documents must be completed within a deadline – teachers should drag files out of the hand in folder and put into another folder on their machine.Hand in and Hand out does not count against your server quota.Hand out folder is completely open – Any teacher can create folders – strong recommendation to keep consistency for folder names.Process of transfer of old server data will happen on Day 1 and Day 2
33 KB < MB < GB < TB Server InformationStudent dataTeacher dataStudents are allocated 1 GB of server space.Teachers are allocated 5 GB of server space.KB < MB < GB < TB
34 Manually Accessing the Server Folders Itinerant teachers still need to mount the server manually when they are not at their home school.The server address will be different at each school site.Go > Connect to Server > Add specific school server address.This address can be communicated from server admin. The address is also listed in the sidebar/shared area when connected to the server. Itinerant teachers would want to write down the server addresses they will need.Here are examples of school server addresses for teachers and for students
35 Changes to Student Login High School:Login remains the sameMiddle School:Login remains the same (except for a few duplicates in names from each school)Elementary School:Login will be similar to the current login. The new login will add 2 letters to make all ES student logins unique across the school systemi.e. bw12s001 (bw=Bryant Woods)CHECK: schools will receive list of student accounts

58 Working with New MS Office Files The new version of Office comes with new file extensions (e.g., .docx)The “x” is for XML- a file format allows users to share Office files across platforms- a Word document created on a Mac has no problem being edited in Word on a PCThe new Office application file extensions:Word: .docxPowerPoint: .pptxExcel: .xlsx
60 MS Office ConversionChange the default (Preferences)
61 Standard Toolbar- Ribbon (Mac) QUESTION- will the mobile labs be “locked down” or be able to be accessed by other laptops?Office 2008 now has a clean Standard Toolbar that not only please the eye, but also reduces clutter; these improvements make it much easier to use. Toolbars still exist within Office 2008, but they are task-specific and are only available when they are needed. When the task has been completed, they are put away to help maintain a clean workspace.Navigation PaneToolboxElements Gallery
