Today we as educators should have an easier time communicating with students and parents since we have so many internet resources and Canvas along with Google can be a great way to integrate so that parents and students are in powered in this education process.  I an trying to improved my communication process through Canvas, but this have been a slow process.  I know we have the Canvas app for Android and IOS.  Here are somethings to consider when you want student and parents to be "in-the-know" when it comes to assignment completions, due dates especially for those who miss class time.  Also establish Canvas tools for easier uploading assignments / projects to Canvas

 

- Put a link for the Canvas App instructions on the course navigation via Canvas External App tool for student access on their mobile devices.

      - Also use this tool for important quick links to web-sites and other electronic resources

- Establish a Google sites web-page with regular assignment updates for all classes and have it link to your teacher

web-site on your school's teacher information page.

      - Create page of current / future assignment due dates for parent quick access since many parent do not visit Canvas on a regular basics.

- Establish mobile communication with all parents to that can link them to Googles Sites web-page

- Use Canvas External tool to establish easy turn-in of electronic worksheets stored on google drive.
