Who has a screenshot of how kindergarten/primary grades are using Canvas? I'd love to see some modules that teachers are building. Thanks!
Hi Amanda Hoagland...
I am going to move this topic over to the K-12 Group because I think it might be seen by more people. Hope this is ok with you.
I'm really hoping someone posts that screen shot! Great comment/question/post Chris!
It's harder for primary grades to adopt Canvas; however, I have had some awesome elementary teachers create some awesome content.
They basically are using pages and link them to icons/images, they are manly using Canvas as supplemental to what they do and to keep parent's informed.
This is from one of my wonderful teachers in 3rd Grade:
This is what she is sharing with the parents and making accessible to student's from home.
Hope this helps.
I teach first grade and this is my an example of some of my links on my homepage. Come to my presentation on Thursday, and I hope you can find some take-aways!
I always think it is important when using Canvas with K-4 that "the intent" should really be thought of first.
While now I am an SE for Instructure, I came from a teaching background. For me in these younger age groups my intent's were:
So, while my screenshot is not a "live" classroom. It is built to demonstrate these two goals.
I also encourage schools who can to also think about the skinning/branding of their canvas sites. I have helped several schools down here in Australia (where I am based) to build a specialised style that is both engaging for the student as well as showing the school name. Just something else to think about
In addition to the great resources that have already been shared be sure to check out How to use canvas with 5-7 year old children?
