AT Consideration:


Acer Aspire One tips:

  • Disable/enable touchpad:  Fn + F7
  • Brighten/darken screen: Fn + Right Arrow
  • Screen flickering? Try to adjust the Display options. Still won't steady? See warranty info in next bullet.
  • Battery won't charge? Refer to warranty information and send it back in to Acer (it's easy-go on web site and print a return ticket)


Links for programs reviewed in the spring 2009 workshops:


The tech matrix was designed to assist in the process of matching features of software and/or devices to tools.  Access it on-line at:   www.techmatrix.org/ 



What about the AT Boogie?  Use it at your next staff development.

Important! For the folks who attended the Region 1 session in Richmond on March 24, you need to follow these steps to turn your Acer Aspire One's microphones on:

Click: START

Click: RUN


Click:  STARTUP tab.

Uncheck : "RTHDCPL"





1. What student will you use this computer with (for AT Consideration)?


2. How will you show what you have developed/learned/done?


Will you conduct trainings back in your school division?


Do you want to write? (blog entry, newsletter article?)


Do you want to present at the TechKnowledgy conference (statewide)?


Do you want to present at a TechTuesday (regional)?


Do you want to create a video or podcast?

For fun I have enjoyed the golf game. For use with students I really like the Balabolka test to speech software.
I have used the portable Apps on several locations and different types of computers. I have found not barrirriers with hardware at this point. I look forward to doing some work with students this summer. Tammy Ritenour
