Tech Trouble Shooting Tips for Students, Parents, & Teachers

Every week we have kids come to the library media center, flash drive in hand, eyes wide and panicked because their computer or printer didn't work the night before and the paper is DUE TODAY!

And though 99% of the time we can help them - how much less stressful would it be if you had solid tech tips to finish, save & print that report or assignment outside of school?

Visit our MHMS Learning Wiki for step by step directions (with pictures!) on how to email your teacher your work digitally if you find your printer out of ink at 10pm, how to directions on how to save a .DOC (and NOT a .DOCX) and other great techie trouble shooting tips!

First suggestion: Email your work to your teacher! Visit the Murray Hill Middle School Website and follow the directions below (click to go to wikipage)

And giving credit where credit is due! ....ALL of these great directions bar one (the email comic of course!) were created by the AWEsomely talented Instructional Technology Facilitator Mr. Tony Smith of Eastern Wayne High School, NC blog Tech Tips for You Thank you for your amazing ability to write great PC directions that even a Mac grrl like me could understand!
