Let's kickoff our Tech-Tip Tuesday with a few reminders for our students:
- Please do not share your username and passwords with other students. Not only is this a violation of the Acceptable Use Policy you have agreed to follow, it is a really BAD idea that leaves you and your information vulnerable!!
- Keep track of the Chromebook and charger that were assigned to you at the beginning of the year -- you are responsible for those specific devices.
- Keep your device clean, charged, and in working order; touch-pads are wearing out, you may want to purchase a wireless mouse to save you the headache of dealing with a glitchy touchpad.
Today's Tech-Information Minute is a celebration of Hispanic and Latinx leaders in technology fields.
The world is more connected than ever, but some communities are still cut off from vital resources like electricity and health care. In this solution-oriented talk, activist Johanna Figueira discusses her work with Code for Venezuela -- a platform that gathers technologists to address Venezuela's needs for information and medical supplies -- and shares ideas for how it could be used as a model to help other communities in need.
