Week 2 - Building Momentum

Thank you...

for your patience last week! Hiccups will occur from time to time with technology and we understand it's tough during the first week when students can't log in, networks go down for a short time, and things just work as planned.

That being said, hopefully most of the bugs are worked out. Moving forward...

  • Mr. Deitz is great with quick network password resets and troubleshooting. Call him at x1186, email him at jdeitz@ldsd.org, or send the student to the library to find him.
  • Google password issues can go straight to the helpdesk at chelp@ldsd.org. Google logins are "username@ldsdstudents.org" along with their network password.
  • Canvas questions can come to me and I'll pass them along if I can't answer them.

Coming to a library near you...

is a student run help desk! We currently have seven students starting an internship as student help desk interns and we need a few more. If you can think of a student that has fundamental technology skills and excellent people skills, encourage them to apply using the link or QR code below. At this point it would likely be students giving up a study hall to earn 1 internship credit.

Student Notifications From Canvas

Students have started receiving notifications from their Canvas courses. That's great because it means teachers are using Canvas! Please take a few moments during class to share the instructions for setting up notifications with students. If we flood students with lots of unnecessary notifications they'll stop reading them.

Instructions can be found here.

Students only need to set this once and it will apply to every class.

I am happy to help you with this in the classroom!
