Teachers are such busy people. We get pulled in so many different directions during the course of a school day/week/year.
Sometimes engaging already busy teachers with Canvas can be a real challenge.
Perhaps a way to encourage teachers to use Canvas could be by first looking at and acknowledging what is on their plates then looking at the different ways that Canvas can support them in dealing with some of the things that are piling up.
Here are a few examples:
Communication - Communication in Canvas
Differentiating - Differentiation and Personalised Learning
Engagement - Sean Nufer is also a great person to follow in the Community. Here are some of his ideas. Embedding Content in Canvas, or: How I Learned to Stop Being Bland and Make My Content Amazing

Time to learn new things - Horse Before the Cart. Purpose first, Canvas second.
When pondering what’s on teachers plates and considering what can be done to support them it doesn’t have to be all about Canvas. Perhaps look at tools that improve:
