If you took Getting Started with Excel, then you're ready for this workshop! We continue on with skills such as workbook views, working with multiple worksheets and workbooks, security and sharing, and database features.
Are you new to PowerPoint 2010? Join us as we explore the PowerPoint interface. This workshop is completely hands-on. Participants will begin by making a basic slide show then learn how to format it, customize the layout, add images, and create Word Art and tables. Slide Show elements such as transitions, animations, and timings will be covered. This class is designed for the Level 1 user and will have a relaxed, easy-to-follow pace.
Join us for a three hour hands-on workshop that explores a method for students to create, share, and comment on student created videos. We will look at creating a video on an iPad using iMovie, and then uploading it to Google Drive. From there, we will post those videos to an Edmodo group where you will be able to view and comment on your videos. Come to the session with a Google account and an Edmodo account. If you have an iPad that you’d like to use, make sure it has iMovie and Google Drive installed on it.
It's really amazing what you can do using the combined power of Word and Excel 2010. Use mailmerge features of Word and Excel to simplify and to shorten time for creating personalized letters, certificates, envelopes, and email to send out to large groups. Participants should have at least a basic knowledge of Word and Excel.
We are nearing the completion of the installation of Microsoft Perceptive Pixel (PPI) touch display units in 60 conference rooms and training spaces in the Education Center and Education Center West.
The PPI display will provide innovative and interactive presentation options. They were installed to modernize our conference rooms and training rooms and to provide a showcase for what can be used in classrooms.
The PPI devices are Windows 8, multi-touch enabled devices that allow using your fingers or a keyboard to interact or write on the screen. In addition you can connect and share your screen from a Windows or Macintosh laptop to the PPI display device. IPads can also connect but need a software app downloaded to the iPad before that is possible. The devices are setup with a standard software package.
The PPI project supports LACOE goals to implement 21st Century learning experiences and the organization-wide green initiative to reduce our use of paper.
You will, however be required to attend training before using the devices and getting support on them.
Visit the site and register for the training opportunity that best fits your schedule. All trainings will be from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in EC 107 with the first date being July 17, 2014.
The training agenda will include:
· An overview of the new devices
· Basic introduction to navigating the User Interface
· Use of new applications
· WePresent™ connectivity for mobile devices and laptops
· Video conference capabilities
· Security guidelines
· Room reservations
· When to contact the Help Desk for support
We look forward to seeing how these audio visual improvements improve how we conduct our meetings and trainings and welcome any feedback you may have.
Are you a Next Generation Science Teacher? Have the science teachers at your school participated in current science safety professional development? Did you know that training in science safety is required by CALOSHA to keep employees safe? Do you know what documentation is required to reduce an individual teacher, administrator, and/or the school’s liability?
The Science Safety for Educators Online Course will provide participants with information to build a solid foundation to create a safe science environment for employees and students. It is recommended that schools, districts, and organizations have as a goal to prepare 100% of all science teachers and other related personnel for the ever-changing environment of safety for themselves, others, and students.
Science Safety, especially in the science lab, is a critical and on-going issue for schools. Not only is it a subject of constantly changing legislation but also the risk of injury to any student, staff, or faculty member is a critical concern. Science teachers, administrators, safety officers, and risk managers must have current information regarding this most important area. All science teachers are recommended to participate but in particular, but it is vital for teachers who are involved in any science laboratory courses.
THE ONLINE COURSE:
The Science Safety Course is a video-based training available via the Internet. Embedded within the course, participants will receive electronic resources, web links, downloadable PDFs, templates, and sample plans. The online course, led by two science consultants from the Los Angeles County Office of Education, features guests representing both secondary and elementary science classrooms, an expert from CALOSHA, and a risk management officer.
The online course, which may be completed over a three-month period, consists of five modules:
1. General K-12 Issues
2. Facilities and Equipment
3. Chemical Safety
4. Life Science Issues
5. Field Trips and Special Projects
Each online module has a brief quiz at the end that participants are required to take. A Certificate of Completion will be provided to participants who satisfactorily complete all five modules. Documentation will be provided to employing organizations by request.
Documentation will be given to the schools or districts by request for those employees completing the course.
What is NOVAtime?
The Los Angeles County Office of Education will implement NOVAtime, a user-friendly web-based timekeeping, time and attendance and leave management application. This new system will gradually replace our manual timekeeping system for preparing, processing and approving absence claims and time sheets between April and December 2015.
What are some Benefits of using NOVAtime?
- Enables employees to enter their time, absence claims, and view leave balances using any web-enabled device, anywhere and anytime.
- An employee can track a leave request from the time it is submitted through the approval process.
- Leave balances are updated in real time.
- Absence claims can be reviewed, edited and approved online
