Online "follows you on the Internet" file storage:
Use a three-finger drag to bring folders or files to your Dock
We know from using phones or tablets that different finger motions can make the screen respond differently. Some of these Trackpad settings can be customized, too.
Software programs can be found in the Applications folder in the Finder.
Make sure you drag the ones with icons to your Dock!
iMovie (making videos)
Safari (for Internet)
iCal (for your planner)
If you need to move your MacBook somewhere, close the lid and carry it carefully to the new location...
NEVER carry a laptop by its lid/screen
When you are finished using the MacBook for the day, select a complete SHUT DOWN to make sure you get a clean start and any updates the next morning.
Charge your laptop at home overnight to be ready for school the next day. Use a grounded plug;
do not attach plug adapters to the charging cable
NEVER use any charger except the school-issued one
No food or drinks near your MacBook, please

NOTE: Anything filtered at school will be filtered anywhere else, on any other WiFi! The District keeps a log of what you see/do and when you see/do it. Tampering with any of our filters or tracking systems is a disciplinary offense.

If students show adults they can use the MBAs and the Internet responsibly, we can trust them with responsibility to more sites (YouTube, etc.)... it's up to YOU!
