To run Office on your chromebook free, you will need to sign up at the following link:

https://office.com

Enter your school e-mail and your password. Select Account through you school.

Although Office 365 is not exactly like the Office 2016 version we use in class, it is very similar and you will be able to complete most of your assignments. The file format will also allow you to edit your documents on your computer in the B321 lab!

One problem with office.com is that is stores documents on the cloud OneDrive and not the Google Cloud Back up and Sync. You will need be aware of where you are saving.

To get the practice files into office.com, you can use this link to open Computer Concepts shared folder.

Can you multi-task? or Why can’t I have my phone in class?

Students think they can do many things at a time and do them all well. There are many studies and articles out  that contradict that belief. A recent article (1/24/2015) can be found here was based on research conducted at West Point. This article (11/15/16) compares distracted web surfing to second hand smoke.

Laptop multitasking hinders classroom learning… Ruminating...

More recently this research has been conducted about smartphone use (7/30/15) and teen friendships and social media (8/6/15).
