@Rodney!!!!! WELCOME TO TEACHING!
And it is easy to move things you create in the sandbox to a student-filled course! :)
Terrie, Math 3 teacher, Cumberland County
They sure can! :)
Warren Elementary Music: Cumberland County
@Karen - the idea of a "folder" is a little different in Canvas, but uploading work is no trouble (and the student app makes taking a picture to upload super easy) and it will be stored with the student's name. :)
I wish there was something for Elementary Art! Would save me all the late a.m. nights
There might be, @T Green! I have found all kinds of things and people add to Commons every day, especially right now! :)
Ruth, OCS Biology, OCS Applied Science, Strategies, Robeson Co.
Stephanie Titzel, New Hanover County, 6-12 Science
Susan; OCS history classes and strategies; Robeson Co.
What did he click on to get to the drag and drop screen?
Click on Settings and then Navigation
A great place to add your bitmoji if you have one. :)
All slides used during this session AND the recorded session (including chat) will be made available on our resources page: https://www.ncvps.org/digital-transition so please feel free to listen and discuss without taking additional notes. You may also wish to check out https://community.canvaslms.com/ which has an incredible collection of resources directly related to using Canvas as a classroom tool.
@Denise, did you have a question I could help with? Or he will be stopping for a Q/A soon - either way! :)
oops didn't mean to do that.
No worries! Just wanted to make sure. :)
I’m an inclusion teacher, do you have ideas of how I can use Canvas as a supplement for the Reg. Ed teacher?
Sure! You can store resources based on content and/or skill/goal for your students in Canvas and "assign" the resources to individuals instead of as a class, for example. What grades do you work with? All contents?
@Vonda - are you and the content teacher working in the same Canvas course or separately courses for your shared students?
can you differentiate the assignments for the groups,?
Absolutely! We will talk about that specifically on Thursday's session and then a little more next week, but there are lots of ways to differentiate by group in Canvas.
If we have time at the end of this session, we can show you at least one way tonight to get you started. :)
I share the Reg. Ed Teacher Canvas page. 9-12 graders, English and Math
So a module is like a file folder in your filing cabinet with all related resources or whatever you put in there?
@Paula - yes!
Are you going to show us how to create buttons?
How does the attendance button work?
You can google "buttons" and find many free buttons or you can use any image you would like as a button (like a Bitmoji or a content-related image).
How do you get buttons side by side
You can insert a table and add a picture to each "cell" of the table to keep them a little separate but side by side
how do you move an assignment to a module
Special Education teacherHow do you take attendance by using the attendance button?
He will talk about that in just a minute, Kimberly, but in general … you do that from the module itself using the + button.
So if you want to put an assignment in a module you need to make it from the module right?
Attendance is not a built in feature in most Canvas applications. If your district has purchased an integrated Attendance app, it may have specific processes. I do know some counties are linking a Google Form to an Attendance "button" and students fill out the form and it is time stamped.
In terms of attendance, you CAN click on "Analytics" and see when each student logged in last (and by clicking on their name you can see more details about their log in patterns and time spent each day, if needed)
how do you get the google form to time stamp
@Kimberly - you do not have to make it from the module. You can add an already made assignment to the module using the + button, or you can choose to make a new one.
@Terrie - it does it automatically when it populates a response table. To see the time stamp just click on the spreadsheet option for responses and it will be in the first column when it lists responses.
Or select what has already been created - either way! :)
NOTE: The expert presenting today may reference online tools. It is important to note that NC Virtual is not endorsing or vetting any online tools but we have compiled a resource list for your reference and will continue to add to that list on our Digital Transition page. I will post the link to that page again in the chat at the end of the webinar for your convenience. You will find other resources there as well, such as a recording of this and past presentations, although it typically takes a few days to finish preparing the live presentation recording to post.
@Talicia - I totally agree.
Can you add your own external tools or does that happen at the school or district admin. level?
Is the youtube video limited to the video--it doesn't start playing the next video or link to other videos from within the youtube video
Can I assign a test or quiz the same way?
Got it! Thanks
If you see paper and pencil, the student is turning something in online.
If you see a rocket - it is a quiz.
A page has a different icon, and so does the discussion board.
I teach a lot of ELL students so I like it for the repetitions and pre-teaching before texts. :) And the pictures. We use it like a defacto word wall.
Such great information. Thanks so much!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Here is a link to the webinar survey: https://ncvps.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4MhKfOfvsYfdLE1 The survey is 8 questions long and will only take a few minutes to complete. Please click on the link to complete now, or immediately following the webinar.
