October 29 Webinar: Built-in Features and Customizations

October 23rd, 2009

Make the MLTI Laptops Meet Your and Your Students’ Needs

Inflexibility of children's blocks

As teachers, we are diligent in our efforts to differentiate the curriculum. Offering choices is an effective strategy to ensure that kids have opportunities to learn and express themselves. To the same end, the best learning tools have student choice built in, resulting in customizations that support access and engagement. Join this webinar to learn how your MacBook is both universally designed and culturally responsive! Get in under the hood and choose to change everything from the size of your cursor to the language of your keyboard.

    Hello Cynthia,
    I was asked by a 6th grade teacher (who does not have a MLTI machine) if most of what you will be showing will be for those who do use the MLTI machine.
    She was hoping to learn about the Mac OS and all it’s fun stuff.

      Hi Helen,
      Yes, I’ll be using my MLTI laptop and demonstrating features available on Mac OS X Leopard. Fun stuff for sure!

      Thanks for checking in.

    Hi Cynthia (I hope this is going to Cynthia!),

    I enjoyed yesterday’s webcast on universal design. I did not catch everything at the beginning and am interested in finding the notes that I believe will be posted somewhere. How would I go about finding them? Also, how do I go about obtaining a certificate of attendance?

    Thanks very much for all you shared,

      Hi Mary,
      Thanks for your response to the webinar. I’ve posted my notes at http://maine121.org. You’ll find them just below the most recent post by Jim Wells, regarding this Thursday’s webinar on research tools. Your ticket to receiving a certificate for participating in webinars is the feedback form, available at http://maine121.org/feedback/. Choose the link to the live webinar survey. Completing the form and submitting your email address will result in a certificate of contact hours being forwarded to you by Juanita.

      Thanks, again. Please let me know if you have additional questions.

    I followed your instructions to complete the feedback form. My link comes up indicating that I have already completed the survey. I did not do so for the Oct. 29th webinar.
