With over 25,000 devices deployed throughout our middle and high schools there arose a need for a central system that was flexible, simple to use and could help transform teaching and learning practices in the classroom. Canvas was that central hub. Because of the integration capabilities of Canvas other digital tools such as GSuite could easily be combined within the Canas environment.
Today, teachers and students across the school district regularly use tools such as Flipgird, GSuite, and Padlet to collect evidence of student thinking inside of Canvas; thus providing a one-stop learning environment for students. Evidence of success can be seen in our analytics; where over 22,000 students log into Canvas daily, 180,312 assignment page views and over 50,000 discussion views take place on a regular occurrence.
