|When you are at school - I have already configured the wireless network so
your laptop should find and automatically connect to the "EBS" network. Do
NOT ever delete the "EBS" wireless network from the list of managed networks
or you will not be able to connect to the internet when you are at school.|
|After turning your computer on it will boot to the Windows
Login. You must enter your AD Username and Password.
Make sure you memorize your username and password. DO NOT give this information to anyone else!|
|Saving Files - I am going to recommend that you save your work into your
Google Apps account. By saving your work into your Google Drive you will
have access to them from home as well (provided you have internet access).|
|Be sure to back up all of your files, homework and other information to
either your H drive or to your Google account. If your laptop needs to have
any extensive repair done by the technology department, they may need to
image your laptop, meaning that any information saved to the laptop that
isnt in your H drive or in your Google account WILL BE DELETED. **The
technology department is not responsible for any loss of data.**|
|Changes to Google Documents....Read Below:|
Google is preparing to make the switch to Google
"Drive" for everyone. For those that haven't already made the transition to
"Drive", Google will be moving your account over to the new interface over the
next few weeks. Google Drive replaces and enhances what you know today as your
Google Documents List. For the most part this is simply a Name Change, but there
are a few differences in functionality. There are links below that explain the
differences with the New Google "Drive".
What is Google Drive?
Think of Google Drive as your personal stash of files and folders that follows
you wherever you go - it lets you keep everything and share anything. With
Google Drive, you can access files, folders, and Google Docs from a web browser.
Your Google Drive is in the cloud, but you can also install the mobile
application to access your files from your smartphone, tablet, or other Android
or iOS mobile device, in addition to the online interface at drive.google.com.
Google Drive's built-in sync capability ensures that your files, folders, and
Google Docs are the same on all your devices.
If you'd like to access your Google Drive contents on your Android or iOS
Google Drive on a mobile device.
How is the Google Drive online interface different from
my current Google Documents List?
The Google Drive online interface looks similar to the Google Documents List
you're used to, with a few key differences:
Collections are now called Folders.
When you first switch to Google Drive, a new folder called My Drive contains:
Documents that you own or have previously
Folders you own and the items contained within
(regardless of ownership)
Other items that would have previously appeared in the Home view can easily be
found elsewhere. You can choose different views and filters to see recently
opened documents, starred items, documents that have been shared with you, items
owned by a particular person, files of a particular type, and more.
You'll have powerful new options to search, sort, or preview your files before

Drive versus your Documents List, and how to
navigate your Google Drive online interface.
