choose your tool
To participate, decide if you want to use Canvas or Microsoft Teams to create a digital activity for your students. Then, choose a lesson that you want to focus on. If you decide to use Canvas, possibilities could be creating an assignment, a discussion, a quiz, a Canvas Studio tutorial/quiz, or even a module with several of these components.  

If you are a Teams user, you could use classwork to create and organize resources, including assignments, OneNote class notebook pages, web links, files, and channels. You could also create an assignment, such as Reading Progress. 

Your goal is to create a personalized learning experience for every student. As a 1:1 district, technology is not just a tool. Now, it’s a lifeline that levels the playing field for all students and has the opportunity to close equity gaps.

If you need help creating a digital activity in Canvas or Microsoft Teams but aren’t sure where to start or what tools would work best, reach out to a Tech Facilitator at www.cpsb.org/bookme to brainstorm or for support.
Integrate Canvas or Microsoft Teams digital activities in your classroom as described when it makes sense for you anytime this school year. Then, share for a chance to win a bag of teacher swag! Bag contains:
