  1. 1. Screen Shots… Student shortcuts Correspondence with colleagues Student project work
  2. 2. Ever used with your students? It’s a great site for readers, emerging readers and non-readers… … BUT … It requires reading to navigate the site! So … how can you support your students … and set them up to be successful at using the site independently???
  3. 3. The initial screen requires a choice of bandwidth …
  4. 4. Next comes the choice of where to go … they might choose playground …
  5. 5. In which case they are presented with an indescript text list nestled inside an array of additional options … in a seemingly invisible box… with a scroll bar that doesn’t seem attached to anything!
  6. 6. <ul><li>Suppose you wanted your students to go to the </li></ul><ul><li>One Fish Two Fish Matching Game… </li></ul><ul><li>Think about how many places your students could get lost, distracted or sidetracked on the way to the activity you’ve chosen … </li></ul><ul><li>There’s a ‘better’ way… </li></ul><ul><li>You can bypass all of the Seussville craziness by providing a shortcut that takes your students directly to the web activity. </li></ul><ul><li>You can provide shortcuts in a number of ways… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bookmark the site as a ‘Favorite’ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a desktop shortcut </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a page of multiple shortcuts (an ongoing shortcut library) </li></ul></ul>
  7. 8. A picture of your computer screen can be captured and pasted into any application you like. Hold down the Ctrl key and press the Print Screen key (upper right) It doesn’t appear that anything has happened – BUT – you have placed a copy of your screen image on your computer’s Office Clipboard.
  8. 9. You can view the images on your clipboard using the Edit menu. <ul><li>The Clipboard works on a </li></ul><ul><li>Last-in / Last-out basis… </li></ul><ul><li>When you ‘say’ paste , </li></ul><ul><li>it will automatically paste the last thing you copied. </li></ul><ul><li>You can paste images in 4 ways: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Edit menu – Paste </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ctrl + V </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Right-click – Paste </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Click the Clipboard Paste icon </li></ul></ul>
  9. 10. If you want to paste something other than your ‘last-in’ item from you clipboard , you can select it … 1 2 3 4
  10. 11. Once an image is pasted from the clipboard … You may want to trim it down - to show just what you want… You can use the cropping tool on the Picture Toolbar to do just this!
  11. 12. Here are some cropping basics… Crop as close as you can on the first pass. If you need to perform finer cropping – enlarge the image and crop again… If you over-crop – you can always un-crop … the rest is still there – just not viewable. If you can’t find the picture toolbar … Click on the picture… If this didn’t do it – Go to the View menu, Toolbars, Picture to turn it on. This toolbar floats – you can drag it up into your standard toolbar area if you like.
  12. 13. You might want to offer multiple options for your students to choose from … a Filtered Word Web Page is great for this.
  13. 15. In Microsoft Word, paste and crop images that represent target activities…
  14. 16. Add a hyperlink to each picture … creating a link to the associated website activity. Advance to the next slide to see how this is done.
  15. 17. Right Click on an image… Select Hyperlink from the pop-up menu.
  16. 18. A hyperlink dialogue box will appear. You’ll need to copy the web address from your target website and paste it into the ‘Address’ field.
  17. 19. Highlight web address, right-click and copy
  18. 20. Right-click and paste – then click OK .
  19. 21. <ul><li>Once you have your pictures hyperlinked … Save your document, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>then also </li></ul></ul><ul><li>‘ Save As’ a Filtered Web Page . </li></ul><ul><li>Place a shortcut to the filtered web page on the desktop. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(File, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Send, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shortcut to Desktop) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Right-click and rename the shortcut as needed. </li></ul>
