Use the thread below to make daily updates (during the first week for sure) of your work on the MacBook, the SJSD network, and your home network, etc. The feedback you provide throughout the remainder of this first semester will go a long way toward helping your school district best meet your mobile and connected learning needs well into the future. These updates need not be lengthy, nor in a great deal of depth. However, of course, the more detail you are able to provide- the better we're able to help. And remember, every little thing that helps your workflow, likely also impacts hundreds of other students in a positive way later on this year.
Thanks so much...
Today, October 25th, I had no issues whatsoever logging onto my computer at Central High School. I had no problems re-doing my DC Bio questions, and could get on Yahoo and Google with no issues. The only issue I had was on my email on Yahoo, and the internet just froze, and I had to exit Safari and re-pull up my email, and it worked just fine after that.
Another note... I don't know if it's my own internet connection at home, but Youtube won't work on for any video for the music videos I tried to watch.
Another note... If you're on safari (And I don't know if I'm just out of the loop, or whatever) But if you slide your fingers across the trackpad, left or right, then it will go back or forward to your previous web pages, instead of pressing the back/forward button.
Oct. 26- I wrote a paragraph yesterday, but I can't find it now, so I must not have sent it somehow. Yesterday I talked about how I couldn't figure out dropbox(but I'm sure that this is an effect of my inadequacy with computers). I also said that for a school assignment I had to do research by reading blogs, watching videos, and listening to podcasts. I didn't have any trouble with any of that.
For today, all I've done is a lot of work on google docs. I am also having a little trouble with my flash drive. When I plug it in, it doesn't show up on the desktop, which is confusing. It took me forever to find where my flash drive was on the computer so I could use it and safely eject it.
Your other reply (from yesterday) is in the "comments" to the 2011-2012 group itself. I'd love it if you'd copy-paste that into this thread.
The flash drive not mounting on the desktop is likely a very easy thing to fix. In fact, I'm pretty sure where that setting is myself. ;) I'm glad you had the confidence (or determination) to root that out and find where the disk actually mounted. Keep 'em coming...
