Technology in the Classroom
What a blessing it has been to be able to give each of students in grades 6-12 a Macbook this school year. Please check back on this page often for updated information about technology in the classroom.
Due to security reasons the Macbook that was given to your child is unable to connect to printers at this time. However this does not mean that they cannot print their material if they need to. Below is a link to a file that will explain a few options for how you can print things that were created on your child's Macbook.
The Apple Store has workshops that are a great source of information that will help you and/or your child with the school?s new technology. The link can be found here: http://www.apple.com/retail/augusta/. The workshops are updated on a regular basis and are on a first come first serve basis. The Apple Store is located at the Augusta Mall.
On another note, we have had our first incidence where a laptop has been broken and needs to be fixed. If you haven?t purchased insurance through the school, please consider doing so. It may come in handy on the rare occasion that the laptop has been damaged. The cost of the insurance is 100.00 up front or charged to your child?s Renweb account at $10.00 per month. The deductible is $150.00 and includes loss, theft or damage.
Amazon.com has a great sale on computer sleeves right now and the link can be found below:
