Each Tuesday, pleasureinlearning brings you Tech Tuesday. Come back each week for more ways to become efficient and effective in your use of technology.
My co-writers on this blog have fabulous insights into teaching. I’m going to make a confession right now. I sometimes I don’t make it to the end of their posts. If you want, you can call me a part of the millennial generation and deride my short-sighted desire for instant gratification. Of course, you could celebrate the millenials as Joel Stein did in a TIME headline article back in May. He declares that “millennials are just adapting quickly to a world undergoing rapid technological change. They’re optimistic, they’re confident and they’re pragmatic at a time when it can be difficult just to get by… even if it means they spend too much time on their phones.” For the sake of your pleasure in educating, I hope your perspective aligns with Mr. Stein’s.
Tech Tuesday posts have been a little long lately too. In honor of Mr. Stein’s article, this multi-part series brings the KISS principle to Tech Tuesday posts. (I bet Gen X didn’t have an encyclopedia with and entire article dedicated to the KISS principle.) Throughout the series I will give you the shortest, quickest tips possible. Feel free to share your quick tips in the comments.
Did you ever notice that your Start Menu/Screen is searchable? If you’re using Windows 7 or an older version, just click the Start Button and start typing. In Windows 8, access your Start Screen by clicking in the bottom left corner and start typing your search term. Windows searches programs, files and settings all at once. In any version, pressing the Windows button on your keyboard will access your Start Menu/Screen.
