As many of you know, I am the author of a technology curriculum for K-8. While it isn’t based on any one platform or software (be it Mac or Windows or Linux, or Office 2003 or 2010), I do give hints here and there on how to accomplish the required skills (i.e., how to add a table to Word). When I wrote the textbooks, most people used Office 2003 so the hints are tied into Office 2003.
I know sometime soon I’ll have to upgrade those ‘hints’ to Office 2010, but I’m not sure when to pull that trigger. The biggest difference between the two versions is the layout with toolbars or ribbons. A lot of people I know haven’t made that leap yet. It’s a major change in the intuitive understanding of the program and then there’s the cost.
That’s where I’d appreciate your input. Which do you use at school–Office 2003 or Office 2007/2010. Please pick your answer on the poll below and thanks for your assistance!
