Are You Ready for Some......CANVAS?!

Ok, so football season is in full swing...but we don't have to wait for Monday night, Thursday night or Sunday. Canvas is here! Here's a little Q and A about getting started with Canvas:


Q: How do I get started?

A: Well, that depends on where you are at with Canvas. Some of us have had experience with Canvas, some of us have a Toolbox we've been working on and some of us aren't sure where to begin. To help with this, I have created a GETTING STARTED CANVAS module on the ED TECH CIRCLE Canvas page. There are step by step tasks to help you get started as well as a PLETHORA of resources in case you need them.


Q: I see your wonderful list of videos and checklist, but I'm still not sure what to do?

A: If you need a little more guidance, I am available any time to help you get set up.


Q: How can I set a time to meet with you?

A: There are a couple of ways;


1. I have an APPOINTMENT CALENDAR on the ED TECH CIRCLE CANVAS page

2. You can e-mail me the time/day you would like me to pop in

3. I will be popping in and out of classrooms this week to see if anyone needs extra support.


Q: I have a specific problem, question about Canvas. What can I do?

A: You can e-mail me anytime and I will come to your room and help solve it!


Q: Will there be Professional Development on Canvas this year?

A: YES! In-house and a year-long menu of classes available throughout the year through the district. Stay tuned!

VIMEO THE WEEK

Below is this week's VIMEO of the week. VIMEO's are easy to embed within Canvas and a great way to engage student's in various topics and discoveries. You can also use Vimeo's as a way to FLIP your classroom. An ARCHIVE of VIMEO's of the Week will be available on the ED TECH CIRCLE Canvas Page.
