The Meta Community Group received some outstanding blogs in the https://community.canvaslms.com/polls/1475-reflect-and-celebrate-blogging-challenge-finalists?sr=sea.... Let’s keep the momentum and share even more wonderful resources! This is the second of three planned blogging challenges in 2019. Get involved and enjoy the professional growth!
A community can uplift, support, and encourage. The joy you experience when you are part of something positive which is also bigger than yourself can be rewarding and motivating. Here’s a big question: which community helps you be you, or which community fuels your passion projects? It’s time to share the joy that you find surrounding you daily. In the next few weeks, take some time to write and share your stories with the Canvas Community!
Here are a few questions to inspire you as you begin to write. You do not need to answer all of the prompts; just pick what inspires you!
Between now and March 31st April 5th, set aside some time for some reflection and writing. To begin sharing your story, you will need to find the Meta Community Group. (If you aren’t already a member of this group, you will need to join this group in order to publish your blog post.) At the bottom of this introductory blog, you will see a button that says “Share the Joy”. After clicking, a template will be copied for you to use as you write your blog!
Please leave the Mar19 and Blogging Challenge tags intact when you publish your blog. These tags make it possible for all of the contributions for this particular blogging challenge to be found in one place, and for the blogs to be connected to one another. Also, if the tags are missing, you may not get the recognition you deserve or qualify for the rewards.
Participants who directly invite others to participate in the March Blogging Challenge via a “share” of their blog are eligible for bonus points. Participants must remember to include @klundstrum in the “share” along with the intended recipient to receive the additional reward points. One recipient (plus Kristin) per share, please. Nobody likes spam!
All authors who submit a blog post on or before March 31st will receive 250 Community points and receive an exclusive badge added to their profile in the Canvas Community. Please be patient as this badge and reward points will be awarded manually.
Additional point prizes will also be rewarded:

I hold an M.Ed in Curriculum & Instruction - Learning Technologies from the University of Minnesota and a B.S. Teaching degree in Art Teaching from Winona State University. Currently, I have multiple roles at DeLasalle High School - Teacher & Canvas Engagement Specialist. I teach a variety of visual arts classes, and I prioritize problem-solving and reflection within my student-centered environments. It is my goal to blend traditional studio experiences with technology applications for communication, collaboration, and organization. In addition to teaching, I actively participate on the Technology Committee, am a Canvas Co-Admin, am the lead in-house Canvas trainer, and as the Canvas Engagement Specialist, I work with faculty to advance pedagogy and student engagement through thoughtful course design using visual design and Canvas's tools.
