If you've used Canvas you know how great it is, but how do you get teachers, who have never used it, to give it a try? Learn how to use a pre-designed Canvas mini-course to engage teachers in a safe learning community, where they learn how to use Canvas while designing learning content to use with their students. By breaking down the basics of Canvas into two face to face meetings, and 10 short online challenges, you can help teachers get over the learning curve, and discover how to use Canvas to take their game to the next-level!

  25. 25. Dont think I did this right.
  26. 26. Chris, here you go.Still dont know about most ofthis stuff.
  27. 27. I guess my fear is that we become too overreliant on technology. I could see thisdirection essentially leading to onlinecourses that actually reduce student face-to-face interaction (which is alreadydwindling), and creates a "virtual" schoolenvironment where there is little personalinteraction.
