Dragon Naturally Speaking - speech to text
by Ragne Maxwell - Monday, 3 August 2015, 5:34 PM
 


Some of you have been using the Dragon microphone and software to talk into computers and have them write down what you say over in A block. We've had students and parents ask about buying individual copies for use on your own laptops. We have organised a school deal of $122 for a microphone and the software. If you would like to receive a letter about this, please put your name on this Google Doc.

School Exam Revision
by Ragne Maxwell - Saturday, 4 July 2015, 9:31 AM
 

School exams are next term. Brain research shows that doing a bit of revision regularly leads to MUCH better results that a lot of revision just before exams. You need to reinforce those neural pathways and turn them from footpaths into super highways for high speed retrieval. What you revise now, you will remember much more of at the end of the year. Plan to do some revision every day during the holidays and next term. 


Below are links to your revision topics and a revision timetable. Make your own copy of them and create your personal revision timetable. There will be a few hard copies available in form class on Thursday, if you prefer pen and paper.

Revision Timetable

Year 11 Revision Topics

Year 12 Revision Topics

Year 13 Revision Topics

Also, check out the HST video from assembly!
