Let's celebrate all on time assignment submissions!
Recently canvas added a confetti option to celebrate on time assignment submissions. With our ongoing reliance on distance learning students are becoming less motivated to get work done. Sometimes small things increase engagement (have you ever seen a student with no internet get excited for the dinosaur game?!). It seems small, but some kids might find motivation in that small party on their screen. I heard about this new upgrade, but was surprised that none of my students commented on it. Turns out, since I use external tools (google cloud assignments, quizzes 2, edpuzzle, NewsEla, etc), none of my assignments trigger the party on their screen. During a help session I was told this only happens for assignments submitted directly into canvas or file uploads. Let's not treat external tools as second class assignments! Let celebrate all on time submissions! Anything to increase engagement as we approach the end of the school year!
