Before I share this week's tip, a special thank you to all of those who have served in honor of Veteran's Day!
You probably already use the scroll wheel for "surfing the internet" to find lesson planning resources. But, did you know that it can be used in 2 other ways?
1. It can be used to click on links. If you click using the scroll wheel, it will open the link in a new tab. This leads to much faster internet browsing.
2. If you hold down control and roll the wheel, you can instantly zoom in and out of a webpage, document, or PDF. Rolling forward zooms in and backward zooms out. This is especially useful when projecting items for students that might be too small.
Give it a try!
