Barr firstname.lastname@example.org Technology Resource Teacher Fayette County Public Schools Lexington, KY Florida Educational Technology Conference 2001 Barbara Barr Page 2 of 2 1/23/01 Before we begin, a few important notes: < I am not an employee of Microsoft! < No one in my family is an employee of Microsoft! < I am not receiving products or special treatment from Microsoft! < Most of these tips, tricks, and techniques can be used with ClarisWorks/AppleWorks, Lotus SmartSuite, and other similar products. < Technology use is easier when one uses software with common terms and features. < Technology integration can be simple, and does not require lots of software. < MS Office, ClarisWorks/AppleWorks, Lotus SmartSuite have just about anything an educator could want to integrate technology and make real life connections. < There are many other wonderful resources to help you integrate technology with ClarisWorks/AppleWorks, Microsoft, and similar products. < Keep in mind that almost every function in Office programs has multiple ways to be accomplished. I may show you only one way, and there are usually a number of other ways to do the same thing! WARNING Be sure to try these things at home, at school, at the office, or where ever you can find a computer! Barbara Barr Page 3 of 3 1/23/01 Similarities of Menu Bars in Office 2000: The commonalities of the Office Menu Bars, Tools Bars, etc. make it easier to learn and use the various programs. This is also true in ClarisWorks/ AppleWorks, and other such programs. Word: Power Point: Publisher: Excel: Access: FrontPage: Barbara Barr Page 4 of 4 1/23/01 Wonderful Word Where to use Word: In the classroom, Word can be used for just about anything for which you would normally use a paper and pencil. < Student workstations < Center activities < Small group activities < Large group presentations with a multimedia projector, SmartBoards, scan converters to televisions, and etc. < Computer labs < Teacher/Administrator workstations Barbara Barr Page 5 of 5 1/23/01 How to use Word in the classroom: < Daily student check in < In place of an easel < Daily student responses < Create tables < Daily student check lists < Text for web pages < Create class books < Student centers < Reports < Spelling activities < Research papers < Language Arts activities < Portfolios < Writing activities < In place of a chalk board < Math activities < Menus < Cropping or altering < Newspapers/Newsletters pictures and photos < Brochures < Lecture notes < Advertisements The uses for Word are literally unending! The program can be used individually, in small groups, or in large groups. The more we learn about technology integration, the more uses I’m sure we’ll find for the word processing programs. Keep in mind that almost every function in Office programs has multiple ways to be accomplished. I may show you only one way, and there are usually a number of other ways to do the same thing!

In the dialogue box, select your desired Font, then select your desired Font Style, followed by selecting your desired size. Click on Default to set your program for this font. Barbara Barr Page 6 of 6 1/23/01 Personalizing Word Styles: It is easy to personalize Word to meet the needs of individual students, or to work with special projects. It is essential to set up new styles for younger students in order to keep the computer developmentally appropriate for them. I set up some of the following styles for teachers: Primary writing: For writing projects in the primary classes Student writing: For writing projects in the intermediate classes. Writing: For secondary writing projects. Spelling: For spelling and related projects. Small group: A larger font, perhaps in a color, for small groups of people working at the computer. Large group: A large font, generally in a color, for viewing on a television screen or SmartBoard. Individual student name: For students with special needs. Math: Includes superscript for formulas and math symbols. Creating New Styles: 1. On the Menu Bar, click on Format. On the drop down menu, select Style, and click.

Lastly select the size for your style. You will see a sample in the box at the bottom on the dialogue box. Then click OK, OK, and Apply. It is a fast and easy way to change fonts and formats for school activities! Word Tables: Word tables are great for novice computer users and experienced computer users in a hurry. For students of all ages, and teachers of all grades and subjects, we have used these tables for nearly everything. They are especially great for daily sign in or daily activities which provide computer equity. Here are some of our favorite uses: Question of the Day Daily Opportunities for Computer Use A simple way to provide equity! Barbara Barr Rosa Parks Elementary BBARR@Fayette,k12.ky.us 859-381-3132 The “Question of the Day” is a very simple classroom project that offers each student a few minutes daily computer time. It provides equity, as each student gets a turn each day. I have used it for first through fifth grade classrooms. The template for the “Question of the Day” is easily made in a 2-column Word table. One column is used for students’ names, the other for the students’ responses. One of the beauties to a Word table is the ability it has to expand to the size of the students’ responses. A sample of the template follows. I recommend keeping an extra template on a disk or in a folder. Barbara Barr Page 8 of 8 1/23/01 Topics for the “Question of the Day” are unending. Open-ended types of questions work best. This is a great way get a acquainted with new classmates at the beginning of the year, assess writing skills or specific knowledge, enhance a unit of study, and compare progress rates of students. The most important factor is the daily opportunity to spend time on the computer. Some topics I have seen teachers use include: 1. What is your favorite ___________ (color, food, TV program, animal, etc.)? 2. What did you do ____ (last summer, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, etc.)? 3. Can you write a number that has a 7 in the ______ (hundreds’ place, thousands’ place, etc.)? 4. Can you write a number with 7 figures in it? 5. Can you think of two words that begin with the letter B? 6. If you were traveling on the Mayflower, what would you bring? 7. If you were running for President, why would people want to vote for you? 8. Can you predict how many days it will be until our seeds sprout? 9. Can you predict which car shape would provide the best airflow? 10.Who was your favorite character in this book, and why was this person your favorite? 11. What do you think will happen next in the book? The opportunities for questions are endless. Creating the Question of the Day Template: 1. On the Word menu bar, click on Table. Word Table 2. On the drop down menu, select insert, and then table. Insert Table Barbara Barr Page 9 of 9 1/23/01 3. Select 2 columns. Use the number of Students in the class to select the number for the rows. 4. After clicking OK, you should have a two-column chart with spaces for each student. 5. Write the students’ name in one column. HINT: For younger students, you may want to increase the size of the font. This can be great documentation for Parent Conferences. To share with parents, highlight the name column, and delete all the student names (except the name of their child). Print a copy, then use the back button to return all the other student names. Sample Question of the Day Template: Question of the Day Date: Question: Student Response Barbara Barr Page 10 of 10 1/23/01 Sample responses from a 2/3 class: Mrs. Chapman’s Question of the Day Date: Friday, September 1, 2000 Question: What are your favorite things to eat for lunch?
