Technology Tip Tuesday

We hope everyone is having a great week in anticipation for December break! This week’s tip is definitely one some students need help remembering because many times we forget to save our work when typing on the computer. If you need to quickly save your word in Word (and you should often!) when typing, select the Ctrl+S keys! You can easily and quickly save your document!
