About two months ago, Mr. Perry got me a MacBook Pro. He got it for a really really good deal, and it was practically brand new (only 4 months old)! At first I didn't appreciate it because I wasn't too familiar with them. The last time I'd used a mac was my sophomore year in college when I worked at the Dean of Student's Office (the year will remain unmentioned). After using it for the last couple of months, I can truly say that I absolutely LOVE it!
Today as I sit in a quiet, uneventful home (mother's day out) I am working on a few summer/back to school projects, and I appreciate the macbook more and more!
Next month when I'm at CAMT, I get to use my iphone as a remote for the MacBook. One of my favorite apps links the phone and MacBook. It's great because it serves as a hand held remote (with cheat sheet notes that the audience doesn't see)!
Yesterday I also got a wireless keyboard and trackpad...so excited to test them out!
I made a brochure for this year's "meet the teacher/back to school" night. It has a daily schedule, contact information, a short note for the students, and a quick list of action items for them to do. When they complete all of the items on the list, they'll get a chance to choose a prize from the treasure box (really trying to connect the ocean/beach theme here)!
This is the first slide of my presentation for CAMT. . . hoping to wrap it up next week!
I have learned to love Keynote!
