Ogden School District recognizes Canvas LMS as our primary learning management system for all secondary schools for its unique ability to help teachers with content creation and delivery, communication, feedback, grading, collaborative learning, and more. Canvas usage spiked across our district and state in response to the COVID-19 dismissal. Although this provided an immediate solution, our students and parents did not all share in the same experience. We believe that with strategic planning, stakeholder training, and ongoing support, we can provide a consistent and reliable quality digital learning experience for all of our students.
OSD Canvas PD Opportunity: Canvas Elevated
The OSD Canvas Elevated Course is a self-paced guide that will teach you how to use Canvas in OSD for personalized and blended learning, and how to design your courses in Ogden. Canvas does have an extensive library of stand alone how-to guides that you may also want to check out. However, this course will guide you through those steps in an order that best meets the needs of our students here in Ogden.
Get ready to build a solid foundation for blended learning and create the ideal learning environment for your students! Then prepare to launch into success as you bring together Canvas with the great things already happening in your classroom!
We will be offering two levels of training: one for beginner/intermediate Canvas users and one for advanced Canvas users. We will be pushing you to expand your thinking and grow your knowledge with our official district Learning Management System (LMS).
Beginner/Intermediate topics will include getting started with Canvas; blended learning basics; creating assignments, discussions, and quizzes; integrations with Google, and more!
Advanced topics will include designing high-quality pages and content, maximizing student learning with assignments, discussions, and quizzes; integrations with Google, personalized and differentiated learning with Canvas, and leading in your school with Canvas.
Participants can receive 0.5 USBE credits for attending the full PD.
