Title: An Introduction to Productivity Suite Software


1
An Introduction to Productivity Suite Software
  • Word in Action

2
What is Productivity
  • What are signs I am not productive?
  • How can I tell if I am productive?
  • Use productive in a positive sentence related
    to school today.
  • Use productive in a negative sentence related to
    school today.

3
To Understand Business
  • You have to understand Productivity.
  • Sometime we are lucky and we can relate a concept
    to our own lives.
  • Students can understand productivity and know how
    to manage it.

4
Businesses and Productivity
  • Businesses and students know how to
  • be more productive by being more organized.
  • break tasks down and take breaks between tasks.
  • plan ahead, schedule and manage deadlines.
  • make work spaces suitable to the work being done
    and have resources handy.
  • use software to help with productivity.

5
History of Productivity Suites
  • In the 1980s application software was sold by
    different companies required new learning for
    each type of program.
  • Users wanted everything to look the same to make
    it easier to learn and to be able to use the same
    information in different programs without
    reentering it.
  • Lotus launched Symphony in 1984 which was word
    processing, spreadsheets and databases in one
    application package but it was not powerful
    enough.
  • Word processing sold with other software such as
    a spreadsheet are called Productivity Suites.

6
Microsoft Office Suite
  • Bill Gates saw an opportunity and developed the
    first real Productivity Suite.
  • A DOS version was released in 1988 but each of
    the individual products or appplications was not
    good enough YET.
  • The first real functionally competitive Office
    Suite was released in 2000 (Office 97).
  • It is the same age as you. Happy Birthday Office
    Suite.

7
Scribing to Printing to Typing to Word Processing
  • People used to handwrite, print and then type.
    The problem was speed, errors and legibility.
  • Word processing was not part of computing. That
    changed with the PC in the late 1980s.
  • Word is a the most commonly used application
    software and the most commonly used part of all
    the Office Suites.

8
Word Processing Has Changed
  • It is no longer about just making the document
    uniform in print size, easy to produce, or easy
    to read.
  • Nor is it about making it easy for people to type
    and correct errors.
  • Word processing software has many features to
    make documents look professional and visually
    appealing.

9
Name a Few?
  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Underline
  • Font style
  • Font size
  • Colours
  • Shadings
  • Borders tables
  • Clip art
  • Pictures
  • Margins
  • Text alignment
  • Word wrap

10
Common Word Ribbon Icons
  • Home Ribbon
  • Insert Ribbon
  • Page Layout Ribbon

11
Using Microsoft Office Word
  • In a word processor, a window allows you to view
    only a part of the document at any given time
    just like a real window lets you see only part of
    the scene outside.
  • By using certain keys on the keyboard such as
    PgUp and PgDn, the document can be scrolled
    (moved horizontally or vertically) across the
    screen and bring into view the part of the
    document you want to see or work on.

12
Begin at the Beginning
  • That is a wise saying, It means dont forget
    first principals.
  • One of the first and most important things to
    know is what will happen. If you start typing to
    know that you have to know where your cursor is!

13
  • The document is changed through the use of the
    cursor. The cursor is the blinking vertical line
    that tells you where the computers attention is
    currently focused on the screen.

14
How Long and What are We Doing?
  • We will spend 9 to 12 classes including a
    project.
  • We will have some options about what we do but we
    will probably be making some posters using Word.
  • There is no test but there is a mandatory review
    of knowledge but it will be fun.

15
Save, Save, Save
  • Save your document. Dont rely on AutoSave. Be
    sure you are in the right folder.
  • Great to make a back up but keep the back up copy
    up-to-date.
  • Otherwise

16
Home Ribbon Find and Replace
17
Features from the Home Ribbon-Find and Replace
  • Find, Replace and Go To are in the same area.
  • Find is just locating something.
  • Replace adds the additional concept of changing
    what you Find.
  • Go To allows you to advance to a particular,
    page, section, line, etc.

18
Find/Replace-More Tab
  • Both the Find and Replace have a button that says
    More.
  • That More tab allows you to refine your search
    by setting more parameters.
  • Most options are self-explanatory. We are going
    to practise.

19
Find and Go To
  • Why is Go To on the same tab as Find and Replace?
  • The idea is that Go to something is a concept
    similar to finding it.
  • There is no More button but a list of locations
    like page, section or line.

20
Lets Practice Using Apples
  • Click on the Find and click the More button
  • First tick wildcards part way down the page.
  • In find what type ples and press Enter.
  • Next
  • Click on Replace. If you see less be sure to
    click on it to remove the options.
  • Find what Apples Enter
  • Replace with Oranges Enter

21
Undo and Redo
  • In the Quick Access Tool Bar there is an Undo
    feature which allows you to Undo mistakes. It
    has a little arrow going counter clockwise with
    the arrow at 9PM.
  • What if you used Undo and wished you hadnt?
    You can Redo it. That one also has an arrow
    going the other way and undoes the Undo.

22
Nuggets and Numbering
  • Lets look for Nuggets and Numbering on the Home
    Ribbon

23

Shaneens Notes
  • Her teacher wants her to compare concepts side by
    side.
  • What did Trudeau do in two separate roles, one as
    Justice Minister and one as Prime Minister.
  • She needs to get this straight. She wrote it but
    it doesnt make sense.

27
Shaneens Notes
  • Justice Minister He was involved in the
    liberalization of Canadas divorce laws. He said,
    the state has no business in the bedrooms of the
    nations. This was the beginning of a change of
    law (and public opinion) about homosexuality,
    contraception, abortion and many other
    controversial issues. The Bill was called the
    Criminal Law Amendments Act 1968.
  •  
  • Prime Minister He repatriated our constitution.
    In addition, he established the Charter of Rights
    and Freedoms. He centralized Canadian
    decision-making. Some say that negatively
    affected Quebecs culture and the economy of
    Western Canada. He said the F word in the House
    of Common, which was amended to Fuddle-Duddle.
