tech tip

Microsoft Office 2013

Create and Edit PDF Files

Office has toyed around with PDF files in past versions, but this time around Microsoft got serious. In the past you could save as PDF, but now you can actually edit. The new Word 2013 allows you to open PDF files, edit them there, and then save them as either DocX files or PDFs.

To save a file as PDF simply click “Save” and then use the dropdown menu to choose the .PDF option. It is one of the many file types you can choose here.

  • CCE Owl Pellet Investigation

    Mrs. Abby Morse's 3rd grade students of Champ Cooper Elementary connected with the Discovery Center of Springfield through a video conference to learn about animal habits, adaptations of predators and prey, and population control through food webs. Students were able to examine different animal skulls and identify the three different types of teeth to determine the animals role in an ecosystem. Finally, students dissected owl pellets and used the bones found to determine the type of prey.

  • TangiTech Hour of Code  
     Natalbany Middle - Hour of Code

    Ms. Philipson's 4th grade classes at Natalbany Middle School rock the hour of CODE. Students began using CODE at the start of the 3rd six weeks and really enjoy it.  Here are some comments from our students: Jaron says CODE has taught him that it's not that easy to make a computer game, it actually takes a lot of work.  Shaylia likes that there are different levels and you feel like you have accomplished something at the end of each one. Jack says sometimes he struggles, but he enjoys the challenge and knows it is helping him to learn how to process his thoughts. Roneitra calls it brain work, a fun way to learn. Sonia is just plain excited she is learning how to program a computer. Keno likes that he gets to work with images instead of a lot of words.
