Please remember that the Acceptable Use Policy states that you should only use your laptops for school work while you are on campus. The network management software records all network traffic and can be checked by staff if they suspect you are not able to resist doing those activities with your laptop you know you shouldn't be..... be good!
Everyone should change their passwords at least once every three months and choose passwords that are not easy to decipher i.e. mixed-cased alphabetic, non-alphabetic (numbers, punctuation) at least six characters long. Have you changed yours recently?
Oh yes they do! A laptop that was stolen from school was not covered by insurance because it wasn't locked up. It's not just the cost of replacing the laptop that makes this so painful, it's all those files you forgot to back up, those settings you have tweaked to suit your way of working and the inconvenience of being without your technology until a replacement is purchased.
Do not leave your laptops unattended, you have been warned!
Use your laptop for school work but not all the time,
You need a break and a breather to make you feel fine.
If you really need screen time during break or the lunch hour,
Don't walk around school chasing wifi and power.
We have found a nice place that you can all fit in,
Sec201 is the room you must sit in.
Did you know that you can still access the shared folders on our network even when you are at home? You should try this out this evening so that you are well prepared if the school has to close unexpectedly. Click on the link below for more information.
Are you having problems printing your work? You need help!
1. Read instructions at www.patana.ac.th/Go/?To=329
2. Ask your ICT Teacher;
3. Ask a student technician in Sec201 at break or lunchtime;
4. Ask at the IS/IT Department helpdesk;
Don't forget to start at number 1.
Remember to always use legal software on your laptop or home computer. Did you know that there is a lot of good open source software and freeware available for you to use doing your school projects and homework. More information on the Secondary Students website. A direct link is below.
So much of the information we need to do our work is now in digital format. If this information was lost we would be severely disadvantaged. Please make regular duplicate copies of your files and keep the duplicates separate from the originals.
For the safety of yourself and others please close the lid of your laptop before moving around school.
Please remember that the Student temporary share folder on our network is TEMPORARY!
At midnight on Fridays a scheduled system task deletes all of the files and folders. There is no backup so if you put your only copy of a file into that folder, make sure you have retrieved it before Friday evening when it will vanish into that great hard drive in the sky!:
We give a lot of trust to you students and expect you not to let us down. Unfortunately some (not all) of you are deliberately breaking school rules by using your laptops to play games when you should really be studying. We are reluctant to impose sanctions that will indiscriminately affect all of you but we do need the guilty to change their ways.
The consequences will need to be more severe for those who should know better.
You have been warned!
If you have two minutes to spare please look at this short cartoon showing the right and wrong way of sitting when using a computer. [Click on the link below]
You should review messages in the Junk E-mail folder from time to time to make sure that they are not legitimate messages that you want to see. People do miss important messages occasionally so if you haven't looked recently take a look now. The link below will provide you with more information about this topic.
Has someone made you feel weird or uncomfortable online? If there is an adult you trust and feel you can talk to, like a teacher or family member, you should let them know what has happened. You can find more information about what you can do at the the following websites.
It is very important that electrical wires are not trailing across the classroom. Can you think why?
Please look around the classroom in every class you have today and see if you can spot potential dangers caused by students connecting their laptops to the power supplies.
PLEASE pull your desk up to the wall before plugging in to the wall socket.
