Canvas: Engaging, Instant, & Organized
The story below is by Kaitlyn Spencer, 8th Grade English teacher at Summit Middle School.
Canvas is a great educational tool for Edmond teachers to utilize as we move forward with the Digital Conversion. Students are instantly more engaged when they get to work with technology, which makes our lives easier!
Multiple-choice assessments are instantly graded, and students can see correct answers and feedback right away. It's great to be able to give them immediate results. Canvas also provides question analytics, similar to Edusoft, so I know how my students are performing on each question.
English teachers have the advantage of having our textbook and textbook resources integrated into Canvas. Students can view textbook pages within Canvas, instead of having to open up multiple tabs or windows.
As I become more familiar with Canvas, I am definitely excited about my students getting their own Chromebooks next year!
