Tech Tips:

  • Save often!
  • Save with easy to remember names. My suggestion: lastname_assignmentname as in: brazile_civilwar
  • Use a removable drive on a lanyard (necklace) so you can't lose as easily.
  • Write your name in permanent marker on your removable drive.
  • Start an assignment with your name, then save it immediately. Check that it saved properly before proceeding.
  • Save often!
  • Try new things.
  • Don't use too many "extras." Too many noises or transitions cause distractions.
  • Be concise and be clear.
  • Follow instructions carefully.
