Merge two Word documents into one

insertLast night I was working on an assignment for the Year 10s and worked out duplicating a page would save me a whole lot of time. It’s been a long time since I have needed to merge Word documents so I had forgotten how to do it. You cannot duplicate pages in Word like you duplicate slides in Powerpoint. Luckily , the Microsoft Support instructions work like a charm and I saved myself time and energy. It means you keep formatting, backgrounds, customisations when a cut and paste isn’t the answer. It’s as easy as creating a new page and using the insert function and object, where you insert from a doc file you have. I then just had to delete the bits I did not want.

Ta-da ! on the To-do

start -up to-do list It was good having my to-do list open on the iPad next to me as I kept track of what I needed to do. With One Note I can tick off what I have done and tomorrow I can delete those and add what has come up. It meant my first day felt like it was productive and organised because it was productive and organised! What is left will be completed in the next couple of days. Since I had my list to keep me focussed, I actually had fun and learnt along the way. Having it on the iPad meant I didn’t need to swap screens or shift anything around. I discovered how to message a whole class on the LMS and while I was doing that (with help from AP to navigate the less than intuitive interface for whole class messaging), I discovered we now have a mobile option for the LMS and I look forward to trying that on my phone on Thursday. Being able to access the LMS on a phone has its advantages when you either don’t have your laptop or you don’t want to have your laptop. When I arrive at school on Thursday I get there at lunchtime and need to use my phone to quickly work out what is on the LMS. I am hoping the mobile option makes that even quicker. We have also become pretty efficient at school at getting information around via email. It sustains a  positive,  personal contact as well as a sound information distribution network. The term is up and running and technology is providing solid support. I’d be lost without OwnCloud and DropBox. I have dropped files into both of them today to try and move past USB sticks. I have USB back up at present just incase there is no wifi access, but being able to use cloud services does streamline everything considerably.

100% focus

keynote Nothing wrong with KeyNote or PowerPoint. Use them to match your needs. What do year 9s need first thing Thursday morning? KeyNote. It sparkles, it bubbles – it doesn’t just blandly sit there . I was on a mission. I had a verb to conjugate . I created the KeyNote presentation so we would look at the verb subjects first and then the conjugated form of the verb.One person of the verb at a time. Each word sparkled, bubbled, caught of fire or had firework explosions and the students loved it and loved their verb and learned really quickly. They even said I had done well. There was nothing to detract or distract and so we got through the verb quickly and then could make up sentences on each part of the verb and I could write them on top of the presentation.  There was plenty of room on the slide presentation for this contextual learning. We did so well we had half an hour spare to spend on our language learning site. 100% focus increases productivity!

Dual monitor set up

I have chosen this video because it shows you the benefits of dual monitors. You can work across screens. You can have one thing open on one screen and continue on with something else on the other screen. Mine are set up on a Windows 7 desktop with one old Flatron L192WS screen on the left as the secondary monitor and my Acer T230H as the main monitor. The Acer is HDMI connection on the monitor to HDMI connection on the computer box. The old Flatron is VGA on the monitor (there is no other choice) to DVI connection on the computer box. It would not work with a VGA connection to the computer and I have to thank my NVDIA card widget for letting me know I needed to connect it via DVI to the computer. I borrowed a VGA-DVI adapter to do that. You can buy a cable but they are not readily available in Adelaide. One of the other benefits for me is that I can stand up and compute with the second monitor. It is slightly higher than the main monitor and so now I have choices in how I work at my desk! dual monitorsYou right click on the desk top and choose screen resolutions and set each monitor to the preferred resolution for that monitor. For my ACER it’s 1920×1080 and for the Flatron it’s 1440×990. On both monitors I have a very clear picture. dual monitors setupThe other thing you have to remember is to drag the monitor screens in the screen resolutions box to the right place . For me that meant the Flatron on the left (2) and the Acer on the right (1). I can now slide whatever I want between the monitors. As well as being more fun, it is more functional.
