Digital Learning Day Resources For Teachers To Use Within Canvas

On Tuesday, March 1, 2016, all Juniors will be taking the Wisconsin state-wide ACT assessment at Pulaski High School.  All Freshman, Sophomores, and Seniors will have a Digital Learning Day.  We've informed parents that students may stay home and complete "Tuesday Only" material via Canvas or come to school and use a "PLT" resource area to complete the day's learning opportunities set forth by the teachers.

While worksheets, lectures, and digital links can be connected quite easily to Canvas, the Discussion Tool and Edpuzzle will provide opportunities to truly engage students during this time.

Some tools that will contribute to the day's learning.
Canvas Discussions:
Ideas For Use:

  • Provide a link to a reading via URL or PDF and pose writing prompts and questions
    • Students will not see other student responses until they post their ideas
  • Require students to reply to a certain number of students
    • Grading the initial responses and replies to students is accomplished using SpeedGrader
  • Provide an image or video for watching and required response
  • Post a file of any type
