Conferences in Canvas
Remember DyKnow Vision? Canvas has their version of Vision in a feature called Conferences. Here is a video for Canvas instructors that gives an overview of Conferences. There are many cons to using Conferences with your students:
- Lessons can be recorded and are available to students for future viewing.
- Conferences are synchronous and interactive and teachers can upload files and share desktop with students.
- Teachers can set up a lesson for students ahead of time, like a flipped lesson, or for when the teacher will not be in class but the work from students will continue.
Someone shared an app with me recently that I wanted to pass on. I installed the app on my phone and took a picture of a document. I can share that document as a PDF. You can crop it, straighten it, add color or take a document with color and make it B & W. It works with anything you you want to scan.
Before installing the app on your phone check to see if your phone camera can do all of these things.
Tech & Learning Resource
This has been my go-to site for all things tech and learning for several years and it continues to provide some valuable resources for teachers and administrators.
Here is the link for Tech & Learning for you to take a look.
