Learning With Canvas

Canvas
Distance learning this past spring was out of the ordinary and our teachers used the technology tools they had available to teach their students the best way they could.  Using the responses from our staff and parents regarding distance learning, we identified a few areas that needed attention.  Two areas were the organization of lessons and communication.  In the spring, you were trying to help your child sort through Google Classroom, emails, announcements, notifications...it was a lot to keep track of!


graphStarting in the Fall, all children in PreK-to 12th grade will be using a new content management platform called Canvas.  Canvas is an educational one-stop-shop.  It streamlines digital tools and content into one place for a simpler, more connected experience.  You and your child can log into Canvas, access their Dashboard, and see everything they need!  Schoolwork, Google assignments, Seesaw, email, live video conference links, To-Do list, calendars, announcements, it’s all there!
Parents will serve a crucial function in helping their children navigate learning with Canvas through an "Observer" role. In Canvas, Observers have limited permissions that allow them to see what is going on in a course without interrupting the flow of daily course communication. Observers may be able to view assignments, course events and grades for a student in the Canvas Parent app. Note: Parents will not be able to activate Observer accounts until courses go live on the first day of school, Aug. 24.
