Tech Byte

Week of March 2-6, 2015

We're Back!

After a short hiatus due to playoffs, weather, and wrapping up the trimester, Tech Bytes are back! This week I have split topics, Canvas (geared to Junior High and High School) and DE Streaming (geared to the teachers of Elementary students.) Of course, anyone is welcome to learn about both.
Get to know Canvas K-12

Canvas

Canvas is a learning management system developed by Instructure. Canvas allows teachers to creates robust courses and distribute content (documents, video, etc.) and create assessments. Courses can be delivered as they are taught (teacher led) or in modules. If each of your students has a computer and you are interested in learning how Canvas works, attend one of the two Tech Bytes.
