Rhiannon Hartvisgen, an inspiring English teacher at Mount Ogden Jr. High was celebrated for her efforts to use the Mastery Paths feature in Canvas a learning management system.
According to Canvas LMS, "The Canvas MasteryPaths feature allows instructors to customize learning experiences to students based on student performance. MasteryPaths is based on differentiated assignments, an existing Canvas feature. Instructors and course designers can identify activities for each student’s learning path and differentiate assignments for required learning, optional learning, or choosing their own content and assignments within a specific path."
On October 13, 2017 UEN shared the video linked above to further promote Canvas LMS and the great work that is happening in the Ogden City School District.
Rhiannon states, "I don't know if I could ever go back to 100% paper or not using something like Canvas. The kids are a lot happier and it frees my time up to work with students who really need me."
Keep up the amazing work Rhiannon!
