What Every High School Student Needs To Know Using The Internet?
When starting school these days schools are giving more and more information in an electronic format. The idea is to become more environmentally friendly, which is a good thing. YouTube videos, links to web sites, Google Classroom, Zoom, email, the Science department in some schools use an app called STILE and for mathematics Maths Online is often used.
Some work is given the old fashion way. Paper and students are supposed to stick these in their workbooks. That’s a piece of paper they will never find again. There goes that resource when it’s time to study. So how can we start to work more efficiently in this new era of electronics.

Share Communication Effectively
Use Email. I understand the resistance to wanting to use Email. It’s considered an old person’s tool. Sure, but it’s the most effective way to communicate and more importantly share files with one another. You can’t share attachments through Snap Chat or Texting.
OK, I did a little more research on texting a PDF it is possible, but you need to download an app.
How Do I Attach A PDF To A Text Message On Android?
Download a file explorer app such as ES File Explorer, Astro File Manager or the simply named Android File Manager to your Android. Launch the app and find the PDF on your phone. Long-press the file and select “Share” or “Send” and choose the method of sending.
When opening a PDF so it feels more like reading a book and help keep a visual on where you are in the scheme of the PDF. I recommend changing the View the Page Display and Select “Two Page Scrolling”.
Add comments using the add sticky note Ctrl 6. Make sure you use the highlighter Text tool to highlight only the important keywords. Think of it as what you would Google.
Sure, I think I would still prefer to Email. Typing my message on a regular keyboard where I can type 100 miles an hour and use formatting to make sure my message is being understood and include screen shots.
Adults resist email too, don’t worry.
As a student you have the advantage of years of practice before you get out into the workforce.
Sure, you get by with Snap Chat, great but sometimes we need to share files and links. Unfortunately, Snap Chat doesn’t do that.
Students need to get a handle on the art of gathering resources when they start high school. It’s not like in the old days when you went to one place yep the Library. Now it’s images, video links, websites, social media – not just one it’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and god knows how many more I may have missed.
