Calling all UK and European K12 Schools using Canvas!
Canvas UK is talking about arranging a user group meeting for UK and other European Schools using Canvas. A Forum where we can meet, discuss specific requirements to schools based in the UK and in Europe, and share best practices. this includes discussing some of the things we need in place to help with the growing list of legislation which may or may not affect how we use the platform.
The first gathering to potentially be in the Summer of 2018 Term, different Schools could take turn hosting these user group meetings.
Please reply to this thread to indicate if this is something you'd be interested in attending, and contributing to.
And Also please post some suggested topics / ideas for the first User Group Meeting.
Are you interested in attending and contributing a UK based K12 User Group meeting? (ps: You have to be an existing user of Canvas in the European K12 sector)
Round table - discuss how can Canvas be configured to help us with Safeguarding regulation? Should notifications configurations be able to be set as a default by the Systems Administrator? Should certain types of notifications always be send via email periodically (currently students can turn off notifications)? Share ideas for practices around using or not using the 'Chat' LTI?
This Feature request in the community would be very useful to help improve Safeguarding provisions:
This sounds like a fantastic idea. I hope that you get a good response.
If/when you do schedule this, be sure to post it to CanvasLIVE. This way other community members that might not see your thread see the event listed there! You may want to look through other events to see if there are other UK people looking to meet up. I know that firstname.lastname@example.org has scheduled this Canvas TeachMeet, June 15th 2018 Bromsgrove, West Midlands, U.K.
Apologies for missing this. Most definitely interested in this. We are a British International School in Netherlands - Yr7-13 (8-12?) 1000 users. Working with SIMS (MIS)
How do we get Canvas to 'listen' to the requirements specific to European Schools regional requirements and make changes in the platform in realistic timeframe? There is a distinct lack of visibility of the product roadmap. The 'voting system' in the community doesn't reflect the 'value' of a feature request.
