  3. 3. Chapter 6: Critical Concepts  What is this chapter about and why is it important?  This chapter describes laptops and other portable devices. Portable devices, such as smartphones and personal digital assistants, have very few parts that can be replaced. These devices usually require a technician with a brand-specific certification to repair them. In this chapter, the emphasis is on laptops, their components, and how to configure them. Laptop preventive maintenance and troubleshooting are also covered.  This chapter is important because more people are using laptops in addition to, or instead of, desktop computers. There are differences across makes and models of laptops, but certain technologies apply to all. Today’s IT technicians are likely to spend much of their time maintaining and troubleshooting laptops. For those students who do not have access to a physical laptop computer in the lab, Chapter 6 also provides a Virtual Laptop. The Virtual Laptop labs demonstrate laptop component installation and removal through animation and student interaction.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

  13. 13. Chapter 6: Classroom Management  Plan for a lot of interaction and discussion in this chapter because many schools may not have laptops to use in the classroom.  Use the virtual laptop labs if laptops are not available.  Disassemble a laptop in front of the class.  Provide a non-functioning laptop for students to practice assembling and to use for part identification.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  14. 14. Chapter 6: Teaching Analogies  A laptop is like a mini-bike, whereas a desktop computer is like a motorcycle. The laptop may have all the same components, but it is not as big. You could also use the same type of analogy with a mini-refrigerator. It serves the same purpose and is easier to move.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

  15. 15. Chapter 6: Suggested Class Discussions  What do laptops and desktops have in common?  How do laptops and desktops differ?  What makes laptops more difficult for technicians to support?  How have cellular developments influenced the growth of laptop technologies?Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  16. 16. Chapter 6: Best Practices  Obtain old laptops from the school or through donation when possible. Obtain manuals for the laptops and disassemble one in front of the class. Use egg cartons or small plastic bags to organize the screws and pieces. Take notes the first time the laptop is disassembled, because laptops are more compact and each brand is unique with their re-assembly steps.Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.
