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.
Hello European Schools Community! Friday 1st March is now confirmed for our first Schools Community Forum- Digital Transformation: Promoting Digital Innovation in your Schools. This will be held at our London office and will run from 12.00- 16.00. Messaging will be going out to all schools customers via the CSM team shortly. We are really excited to bring the schools community together.
Many thanks for the Skype call yesterday Vicky. Very refreshing and also great to get some feedback to a whole range of issues. Really looking forward to the event.
If you are using Office365 in your #ks1-5 school, you may wish to disable the Microsoft 'chat' feature (which is also embedded in OneNote ClassNotebook).
This can only be switched off by the tenant administrator (i.e. not by individual teachers), see the attached article on how to do this – posted on the MS forums.
We had turned off the peer-to-peer messaging for the student role, and the chat feature in Canvas, and have now turned off the Office365 chat feature as a safeguarding measure.
