As you’ve probably heard already, wifi at our school is pretty much nonexistent. What’s even more frustrating is that our regular internet is also very unreliable. As a result of this, visiting the computer lab often turns into a nightmare.
But yesterday, I chose to look at the bright side and not use internet as it was once again, giving many a hard time. I decided to explore Open Office instead and taught the students some useful skills.
-How to save a document
-How to create tables inside a document
-How to change the background color of a page
-How to add color to sections of the table
-How to change the page format to landscape
-How to hand in work using the hand out/hand in folders located on the school server
What made things even better this time is that I was able to use the projector which was recently installed in the computer lab.
What a great lesson that was!
P.S. Open Office is also what I use on my personal computer. If is a free program that can easily be downloaded from the internet.
