As part of the Centex School “My Backyard” project I had the pleasure to be a part of, we created a little PDF book for the children – a guide to the computer lab that would live on the desktop of all the lab PCs. This book would serve as an introduction to the equipment, the rules of the garage/lab, and a student declaration that sets out what we expect from the kids who get to use the room.
While searching for a place to house the PDF online, so that others with an interest in school computer labs might chance upon it and find it useful, I came across this businessweek article about Scribd.
I’ve since uploaded the book to Scribd – please take a look and pass the link along to anyone you think might benefit from it.
Here’s the scribd section embedded (to embed in wordpress, select the “advanced” link to get the wordpress specific code):
