I always encourage students to use the personal Google account for school work so they still “own” the data after they leave high school.
But what if they haven’t, and they’re above to move on to a postsecondary school or the workplace?
There are basically two options:
- Move your data to your personal account
- Download your data
To move your data to a new account, just visit https://takeout.google.com/transfer and enter the relevant information. Just be sure you have enough disk quota in your personal account or you may run into trouble.
To download your data, visit https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout and select the data you want to download. Note that this can take a long time, depending on how much data you have in your Google account.
Over the semester, you will be required to do two informal presentations related to “Cool Tech”. Most students will choose to present on something technological (computer hardware, software, game platforms, entertainment hardware, etc.) that is relatively new, but you may also choose something else with the permission of your instructor.
For grade 9’s and 10’s, your presentation will be very informal. All you have to do before the presentation is submit your topic on the form below, and of course research the topic well enough that you can talk about it to the class. Continue reading “Cool Tech”
For students having trouble signing into Chrome with their DSBN account, enter this address directly into the Chrome address bar and you should be able to sign in properly:
Why sign into Chrome?
It will sync your bookmarks and Chrome extensions so wherever you are logged into Chrome (other classes, at home, on your laptop) everything will be sync’d.
Download this photo into your working folder.
Rename the file “Full Name Tree Assignment.jpg”.
Using Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Affinity Photo, or GIMP, edit out the tree so the falls are unobstructed. You may wish to refer to this tutorial on how to use the Clone tool.
Hand in to the relevant handin folder.
