  17. 17. Chapter 12: Classroom Management  Provide the students with as much hands-on experience as possible with the computers so that they become familiar with the operating system tools, boot menus, control panels, and command-line tools.  If a lab demonstrates a GUI tool, have the students research and bring up the same tool using a command from a prompt.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  18. 18. Chapter 12: Teaching Analogies  All parts of the computer must work together for efficient production. A desk is like RAM. The person at the desk is like the CPU. The filing cabinet is like the hard drive. When working at a desk, a person uses the papers and information on the desk to do the task at hand. When more information is needed, the person looks inside the filing cabinet to retrieve information and bring it to the desk where it is used. Upgrading your RAM is like making the desk space bigger, and upgrading the hard drive is similar to getting a bigger filing cabinet.  A computer with a dual operating system is like having two cars to drive. However, you can only use one at a time.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. Cisco Confidential 18
  19. 19. Chapter 12: Suggested Class Discussions  Why are command-line utilities important for technicians to use with deployments and troubleshooting?  What are the situations in which a dual-boot operating system would most likely be used?  What are some methods for deploying a corporate operating system and applications image?  What are some methods for deploying corporate updates?Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. Cisco Confidential 19
  20. 20. Chapter 12: Best Practices  Have the students create at least one partition as FAT or FAT32 and save a file to the partition. Students should use the convert.exe command from a prompt to convert the partition with the file intact.  On a flat panel monitor, demonstrate different resolutions and how the concept of native resolution is important on laptops and flat panel monitors.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.
