    Some technology updates at BWF…

     

    1. All computers have been imaged with Windows 10 except for 2 in the office.  We are still working on the desktop icons and tiles.  The computers will need to be restarted two times to get all settings.  They will be slow as they will be updating themselves when first turned on.
    2. Copiers are working at this time but if you have trouble or don’t see the printer\copier on your list of printers  please put in an ITdirect
    3. Please place IT requests for any tech fixes you need in your classroom.
    4. New Guest Wifi password: -see Sharon

    1. Set up your Outlook 2016 email by:

      2. Click on the Outlook 206 tile.
      3. Click Next, Next, Next. Finish.
    1. Set your Default Printer by:
      1. Searching for Devices and Printers & clicking on it when it appears in the list.
      2. Scroll down to Printers. Right click your printer and select “set as default.”
    2. Sign in to Classlink & make sure your Google and Microsoft 365 Accounts are connected to your Classlink by:

    3. Show your bookmarks bar & sign in to Google Chrome by:
      1. Launching the Google Chrome web browser.
      2. Clicking your Google Chrome Menu in upper right corner.
      3. Clicking bookmarks/show bookmarks bar.
      4. On the bookmarks bar, clicking the Apps icon on the far left.
      5. In the upper right corner, where it says “Not signed in to Chrome”, sign in using your MBS Google Account. (login@student.mtnbrook.k12.al.us and your Network Password)
    1. Find your files by:
      1. Right click the Start Menu and choose File Explorer.
      2. Click This PC, then scroll down to find your G drive (and other drives).

  • Tech Tips - Summer Edition - Digital Learning

    Posted by Sharon Mumm on 7/18/2017

    Tech Tip Summer To Do #1--Get familiar with your online tools for digital (flipped/blended) learning by:

    • Knowing what online tools/accounts you and your students have.
    • Watching a quick overview.
    • Signing in & exploring. (Sign in pages have a forgot password link.)
    • All of these tools are online, can be used from school & home, from laptops & Chromebooks.
    • Student passwords can be stored in Classlink, so once they sign in once to the tool from school, they will just click to pass through without signing in.
