I didn't think any of the new (first exam 2009) A-level ICT syllabi looked like they included anything much in the way of that hands-on technical stuff (actually, as pointed out over in the TES forums, pretty much all the new syllabi do is re-organise the same somewhat dull, dreary material so the theory stuff is done in the first half, making it easier to do ICT as an AS level, and then a large part of the second year of the full A-level consists of a really dull project). Maybe the hands-on kind of stuff has been shifted to "Computing" A-level or some other qualification these days?
When inserting images into Word documents, powerpoints etc encourage students to:
Save the picture to their home area.
Then in the document: File > Insert Picture > and select the picture.
Rather than copying and pasteing straight from the Internet into the document.
By inserting it, it dramtically reduces the size of the picture they're working on.
Delete the picture from home area after!
When ironing wool or wool blend garments try to iron then inside out to prevent 'shine' developing. To get your creases in the trousers then lightly spray the trousers with a demister, place an irish linen tea-towel on top and iron using plenty of steam on a medium (**) to hot (***) heat.
No? Wrong sort of tip?
When taking personal data of students on and off site ensure that it is in an encrypted folder by using software such as TrueCrpyt.
If you're wearing a suit and you're feeling really lazy, you can get away with ironing just the front of your shirt. :rolleyes:
The house always wins.
Best Ironing tip, get someone else to do it for you :D Ive never ironed anything more than a hankey :D hehe Fixed the iron when broken and replaced its flex but nothing more than that
Best ironing tip (one fresh from the book of student)...just use lots and lots of softner and hang stuff up and there's no need to iron!
Not just the book of student..
I rarely iron anything. Apart from the 'lots of softener' trick, if you are lucky enough to have a tumble drier but don't want to use it too much due to cost (and shrinkage of clothes), put dried but badly creased clean clothes in a tumble dryer for 5 mins and make sure you are there when it stops, so you can take them out and shake them..works like a charm
Take them out and wear them works better......
A bit off topic of ironing tips, I'm in South Africa and will sadly not be attending BETT, is there any chance this book of tips can be turned into a PDF or something similar so I can have copies printed for staff here?
