UMS LAPTOP SET-UP: DOWNLOADS, LINKS, INFO ON SYSTEMS:
Laptops purchased in Fall of 2011 are being set up to prepare students for the upcoming 1:1 Initiative in which each student will be paired with laptop. Currently high school students are being paired with Mac computers. The Macs use Safari for their browsing system. I have a link listed below for it. Middle school laptops have been updated to Safari. Our thoughts were to have students become familiar with Safari before they are issued their own laptop. Should you choose to update your browser to Safari, I can show you some short tricks for set up of toolbar icons, homepage, and clearing history. I will try to post something on this soon. I have also included a link for anti-virus, Microsoft Security Essentials. Both were free downloads at the time of this post. Other links listed below are frequent sites that I use to update the laptops and keep them operating efficiently.
