Netbooks and Word Processing

With 4/5 students it is easy they are fully integrated Google Citizens. All they need to do is log on to Gmail and go to Google Drive. But what about those 2nd or 3rd graders who need to do word processing.

The netbooks have a Virtual Windows icon that allow you to login to Novell using 027 and 11111. Once logged in you can choose a virtual copy of Word in which students can use to type their document. When you save you will only have access to the documents folder which is accessible to anyone logged on under 027.

What I'd suggest is creating a folder under Documents to put all your student's documents in. I would also look at this as short term storage until you can print the documents. When its time for you to print you can log in to 027 and 11111 on any desktop computer and print away.
