As our world becomes more wired, crowd sourcing and individual contributions begin to add to the collective community resources, and the software and hardware increase in power and presence. Increasingly, the tools we can use are freely available for download or use online. In this engaging hands-on workshop, we'll examine just a few of the most useful, clever, cool, and basic thing you ought to know about when using computers in education. From basic keyboard shortcuts, to useful little utilities, to jaw dropping resources, we'll run the gamut. You may have seen some of these, and you may not want others, but we guarantee you'll take away something of use.


Participants will start with some basics - keyboard shortcuts and file management tips that only take a second to master, but are useful forever. Sure you know how to copy and paste, but how do you view your files, or rename everything at once, or duplicate with a drag? Then we move on to using a browser.
