This is such a nice tool. This class continues to teach me new ways to make my life easier. I have been sending out e mails with my powerpoints for different purposes and some people believe it or not do not know how to operate a powerpoint presentation. That is still amazing to me but it is out there. I am able to put my presentation on dvd now and send out instead of working through powerpoint.

here you can access the site with all of the statistical data. If you click here you can access the site to create your own graph as I did. Once you get your information from the first site you just plug in the data into the correct slots and it creates whichever type of graph you desire. It is a very easy way to form a visual image of numerical data. The national data is higher than the state of WV. WV is a step behind the nation when it comes to avg math scores for both 4th and 8th grade. However both, WV and the nation have seen an increase around the same avg. They both are steadily rising over time and seem to be at a similar rate.

This is an unbelievable tool. To be able to have multiple people accessing the same data base and actually edit it is very nice. It use to be everybody had to keep a file on their own information and then somebody merge them all together for one master copy. With that option you take a chance of data entry errors while merging that are a common problem.

This is a very neat way or creating a collage of words into a picture. I typed in the any given sunday speech from the football movie. I am going to create some of these for the upcoming offseason that has motivational and inspirational words to hang around the facility for our players. This is very creative and easy to use. It does not take much computer skills to be able to use worlds. It is EXTREMELY user friendly!
