Ribbon Hero

Remember clippy?  You know that little pop up paper clip that was always giving advice while using Microsoft Office?

Clippy is getting a second chance!  Microsoft has created a game atmosphere to learn all of the hidden features of Office.  This is a FREE download and runs on Office 2007 and 2010.  I've always considered myself a proficient user of Office but I learned a ton!

You get points for completing tasks, using shortcuts, and learning more about the ribbon at the top of the screen.  You travel through different time periods and interact with the data that you are given.  If you are ever in charge of teaching computer literacy to late elementary, middle school, or high school students this would be an AMAZING activity!  Seriously.  Everything is laid out.  It's fun.  It's competitive.  And you can show document progress of your learning!  What more could you ask for!

When I teach Microsoft Innovative Educator classes it is always one of the favorite activities among teachers.  Check it out.  You will be glad that you did and surprised at the time it will save you doing day to day tasks!  Let me know what your high score is!
