Getting Started with Canva for Education - By CanvasLMS

00:00 mhm Yeah , Welcome Everybody joining us on facebook youtube
00:09 linked in twitter this session . I have been thinking
00:15 about for quite some time because it is quite possibly
00:20 I know I'm biased because I am , you know
00:23 , working for canvas now but can via is my
00:27 all time favorite tech tool in the world . I
00:30 will say that to anyone that will ever listen .
00:33 I'm really excited introduce you to two people here that
00:37 are from Canada that are going to talk a little
00:39 bit about um , how to get started with canvas
00:42 for education . I know at least in my neck
00:45 of the woods were kind of winding down our school
00:48 years , but canvas , the one tool I think
00:52 I used throughout the summer to build all kinds of
00:53 crazy creative things . Whether I'm trying to span my
00:57 friends with golf invites or I'm trying to , you
01:01 know , get a group together to just hang out
01:03 . So Canada is always there for me and canvas
01:05 for education . If you haven't looked into it quite
01:07 yet is just a game changing tool . I can
01:09 tell you from experience as a former user that used
01:13 it in school candle allowed me to do things in
01:15 three minutes that it took others two days to create
01:19 because it's so easy to use and they'll kind of
01:21 go into all of that . But I'm joined by
01:22 George lee and Jason Wilmot . They are very ,
01:26 very , very excited to get started with this session
01:30 . We have talked a little bit before George and
01:31 I actually share a similar trajectory and education George teaches
01:36 media arts . So George , why don't you start
01:38 tell everybody where you're from and and what you do
01:41 there in san Francisco . Thank you very much Eddie
01:43 . Um , yes , my name is George lee
01:45 . I've been teaching at san Francisco Unified School District
01:49 Um , at a local high public high school here
01:51 for the last 27 years . So I've seen technology
01:55 literally changed from one generation to another generation , a
01:59 couple of generations I would say in that 27 years
02:02 And I have to send oftentimes when people talk to
02:05 me about you know what I use and what gives
02:07 me excited , I have to say , you know
02:09 , try to get a 27 year veteran teacher excited
02:13 about education , it's not easy and I want to
02:15 say Campbell got me excited about teaching again and the
02:19 reason why it is because I think it goes to
02:21 the essence of what I always believed from the very
02:23 first that I started teaching what education learning and creativity
02:27 is about . So I'm kind of excited to share
02:30 with you guys a little kind of a very quick
02:32 assignment , you know that has to do with collaboration
02:35 . Alright Jason , you wanna introduce yourself , We're
02:39 also joined by the rock star of Canada for education
02:42 . The head of Canada for education , Jason ,
02:45 Wilmot Jason , tell a little bit about yourself how

02:51 you guys take it away . I'm going to get
02:52 out of the way and let the and let the
02:54 genius of George and Jason present today because I'm going
02:58 to sit back . There's probably some things that I
03:00 need to learn as well from Canada , just a
03:03 super user and a big fan . So Jason ,

04:27 access to millions of templates , photos , fonts ,
04:30 icons , videos , you can create anything you want
04:33 um from a group activity perspective . George is going
04:36 to take us through a group activity later this afternoon
04:39 in the session but really you can have real time
04:42 student collaboration , project based Learning . It's an amazing
04:45 tool for that . Talking presentations is another great thing

05:05 remove the entire background of your image . Um we
05:08 are 100% copa ferpa compliance . We've signed the student
05:11 National data privacy agreement across multiple states in the United
05:15 States . And then finally , what we're here to
05:17 talk about is the LMS integration with canvas and we
05:20 have multiple single sign on options through Microsoft google class
05:24 link . So we're really excited about what is included
05:27 in camera for education . We hope you guys are
05:29 as well . So some of the ready used templates
05:32 here , we've got , meet the teacher , we've
05:34 got lesson plans , we've got worksheets , we've got
05:37 virtual backgrounds , right ? We have over 60,000 education
05:41 templates that were created by teachers . For teachers ,
05:44 we've got students using it for book reports , infographics
05:48 , anything you can think of . Um and these
05:50 are all included at no charge in our camera for
05:53 education suite . So let's get set up . So
05:56 to sign up , if you're an individual teacher ,
05:59 you just want to go to canvas dot com forward
06:01 slash agent dash sign up . If you don't have
06:03 an account . So for teachers on the left ,
06:05 just sign up . Now you'll validate your teaching credentials
06:08 , canvas for education will be unlocked and you'll have
06:11 all the access to the premium features . Now ,
06:13 if you're a district and you want to actually set
06:16 up single sign on , what does this actually mean
06:19 ? So if you want to sign up and you
06:21 click the district page , what we will do is
06:22 we'll work with you as a school district . We
06:25 will get you signed up with single sign on ,
06:27 you'll have district wide access . You can centrally manage
06:29 . We have a bunch of management controls and brand
06:32 kits that you can use to ensure that there is
06:35 a consistency across brand across your school district . We
06:38 have some free professional development partnerships and then obviously the
06:42 LMS integration with canvas works best with district enablement .
06:47 Um , and then obviously if you have any strategic
06:49 support that you need , we will provide personalized reporting
06:52 analysis . We're happy to work with you on that
06:54 district set up as well . So if you are
06:57 from a district , feel free to contact us ,
06:59 drop your name in the chat window will contact you
07:02 . But this is really kind of where we're trying
07:04 to get entire school districts on board with camera for
07:07 education to unlock the power for your students , educators
07:11 and even your staff . So next once you've signed
07:15 up your district , how do you connect can vall
07:18 with your LMS with canvas ? So let me ,
07:21 we're going to take you through some quick steps um
07:23 about how to connect it and then also some really
07:26 cool features that are coming in the next couple of
07:28 weeks . So first you want to enable the element
07:31 integration . So you're going to create a district account
07:35 for , can vote once again free . And then
07:38 once you do that , you'll go to the account
07:40 settings in Canberra , you'll click on billing in terms
07:43 that's what you'll enable the lTI integration . Hopefully many
07:47 of you guys are comfortable with the consumer key in
07:49 the shared secret key . This is what you'll use
07:52 to set up can via in canvas . And you
07:55 can see there there's a quick little image to help
07:57 walk you through that . Once you've done that ,
08:00 you will then launch the canvas LMS . That's a
08:03 great play on words . Um and from the admin
08:06 page you go to the settings , click on apps
08:09 , find Canada for education . Once you search for
08:12 Canada for education , that's where you then can add
08:15 the app , you'll add the consumer key , the
08:17 shared secret key which was copied from Canada in step
08:20 one and we will share these guides with you .
08:23 At that point you are ready to go so you
08:26 can add canvas . So after you've integrated teachers can
08:30 now join Canada for education classroom from the course sidebar
08:34 in canvas all teachers need to do is click on
08:39 camera for education to automatically using SSO and LT create
08:44 an account . So once the teacher has set up
08:48 , how do you actually use it from a teacher
08:49 perspective and a student and connecting with canvas and canvas
08:53 as your LMS ? Well , that's great . So
08:56 what you can do is you can make a design
08:57 from a blank template or you can edit a ready
09:01 use template that we have . So you're gonna launch
09:03 camera from your LMS and create any design you want
09:07 and George is gonna go a little deeper on some
09:08 of the design stuff . But once again if you
09:11 start a design you can actually start with a blank
09:13 template . You can edit the text , colors ,
09:16 images , videos and more . You can do anything
09:18 you want from these templates . So um we're going
09:21 to get you in Canada later in this presentation and
09:24 get you guys designing and creating some beautiful art from
09:27 George . Once you've actually made a design in Canada
09:32 , that's where you can actually share the design .
09:34 So when you launch camera from your LMS and actually
09:37 create the design you want to share . If you
09:40 look up in the top right corner of canvas to
09:42 you can see three little dots that is where you
09:45 can publish any design basically . You can embed the
09:49 link anywhere you want . You can present it directly
09:52 from Canada as I'm doing today in the presentation or
09:55 once again you can actually see multiple options and you
09:59 can share on the LMS . So once again ,
10:01 what is coming in the next two weeks as you
10:04 will see a direct sharing the canvas LMS . So
10:06 if you've integrated your canvas learning management system directly from
10:11 Canada , you can publish it designed , you're learning
10:13 management systems . So your students can actually work on
10:16 that template . They can turn it back into you
10:19 and they can actually complete the assignment that you've assigned
10:22 to them . So Pretty cool stuff coming soon .
10:24 So this is how it would work in terms of
10:27 creating an assignment in canvas and adding a canvas design
10:32 . So once you select and create assignment in canvas
10:35 LMS that's where you would select the external tool and
10:39 you would choose Canada . Once you are in Canada
10:43 you can create the design that you want your students
10:45 to work on . All you've got to do is
10:47 click publish . Once you publish that design and you
10:50 post it , your students now have access to log
10:54 into canvas , complete the assignment directly from the learning
10:57 management system . They never need to leave canvas .
11:00 They open canvas . They see the assignment , they
11:03 complete the assignment in Canada and that's where it can
11:06 actually work . This will be launched in a couple
11:08 of weeks so it's not quite ready yet . But
11:10 we wanted to share with you guys what's coming soon
11:15 . So once again , how would a student actually
11:17 submit the assignment ? They log directly into your learning
11:20 management system , canvas and from the top right menu
11:23 , they choose the class to submit it to .
11:25 They choose the assignment there actually completing . They select
11:28 attach and they actually attached the canvas designed to the
11:32 assignment . Once again , very simple . You never
11:35 leave canvas canvas just popped up in front and at
11:39 that point to go to the canvas canvas learning management
11:42 system to turn in so you can see it's a
11:44 very seamless process where once again you're using canvas has
11:47 a learning management system but you're creating the design in
11:50 Canada , they're completing the assignment . Whether it's an
11:53 infographic , a poster , a worksheet , you submit
11:56 it , it all is done and completed within canvas
11:59 as you're learning management system . So it's pretty cool
12:02 system that you have . Now as a teacher you
12:04 can review your students work . That is a canvas
12:08 design . So if you go to assignments , select
12:11 the assignments to look at what the students have turned
12:13 in . You select the candle link from your learning
12:16 management system . You can add comments to it .
12:20 You can do whatever you want at quick little .
12:22 Hey this is great work , keep working on it
12:24 . Or if you want them to continue to edit
12:26 it , you can have them edit it . That
12:28 is where you would go back to the canvas .
12:30 LMS at it . Market grade it and return it
12:33 back to the student canvas is just the design platform
12:37 that the students are completing the work in . And
12:39 canvas is the learning management system that is facilitating the
12:43 interaction between the students and the teachers . So now
12:48 how would we get organized in Canada for education ?
12:51 So now let's think about how you actually get organized
12:55 . So if you've never used canvas before , designs
12:59 are really thinking about where all the work can be
13:01 shared with your class folders are a place where you
13:04 can organize work , draft work and you can really
13:07 share with your students , you can actually add students
13:10 to folders . So only specific students , if you're
13:12 running a small project , if you want to open
13:14 it up to the class as well . Um ,
13:16 groups are larger groups , typically where you're thinking about
13:20 an entire class or a club , but they also
13:22 can be used for small groups . All right ,
13:25 George , we're ready to start designing and editing .
13:27 Yeah , So let's go back a little bit to
13:29 the previous slide because my classes right there is this
13:32 George . Alright George George George ? Yes , yes
13:40 . I'm throwing , throwing some questions at you .
13:43 Really . We had them come in and I want
13:45 to , I want to pop in here . Kind
13:46 of at the halfway point . Preston smith from our
13:48 Youtube page says , can , can be integrated into
13:50 canvas at a higher educational level , like a higher
13:53 institution , um , which I believe it's kind of
13:56 the same in Canada and canvas the same way .
13:58 But I believe you've only talked about K 12 .
14:00 Do you want to speak to that real quick ?
14:02 Yeah . Let me jump in there . Absolutely .
14:04 It's the same integration . However , camba for education
14:07 is a specific tool for K through 12 . Um
14:11 , we do have other options for higher education ,
14:14 but the integration will work the same . So I'm
14:16 happy to meet with any higher education institution out there
14:20 . Um , I believe Preston , I saw your
14:21 name come across the window with the question . Um
14:23 , feel free to contact me directly . But yes
14:26 , the integration is the same . There's just some
14:28 different offerings that we have for higher education . So
14:32 another comment that came in on our Youtube page ,
14:34 Ryan here said I know that you said Canada for
14:36 education is free for educators . But what about district
14:39 licenses ? Does that work the same way ? Great
14:42 question . Same way district licensing is free . It
14:46 is not a freemium model . It is 100% free
14:49 . We just want to make sure that we're setting
14:50 up districts in the right way with single sign on
14:53 . So that is all 100% free . Perfect .
14:55 And I know at the end of the session will
14:57 probably share some contact information for you guys if there
15:00 are people that are joining us today and we have
15:02 a ton of people joining . The chat is popping
15:05 very hot right now . So as people kind of
15:07 come in , we'll go ahead and throw your contact
15:09 information here at the end just to make sure if
15:12 people want to get a hold of you , they
15:13 can do that . So , sorry , sorry George
15:15 , sorry Jason , were , it's your , but
15:18 I wanted to make sure we got to this question
15:19 , we got to get the structure ready before I
15:22 can , you know , kind of go into my
15:24 classroom is kind of like got to build a building
15:26 before you put the people in right now , we're
15:29 now we're in my classroom , you know , this
15:31 is my classroom and I'm a teacher and you know
15:35 , before I kind of started using Canada , I
15:37 mean I used to use all these other places ,
15:39 but now literally all my students now come to Canberra
15:43 classroom , I mean this is where they come every
15:46 single day , especially over this last year of virtual
15:49 learning , this is , this is the meeting place
15:52 , you know , we start off in zoom and
15:53 then boom , you know , hey , let's go
15:54 to Canada and all my lessons are actually designed in
15:58 Canberra and then I distributed to them , you know
16:02 , whichever way that we do . But Canberra is
16:06 the centralized location . And the nice thing about this
16:09 is that the camera classroom is a designed classroom .
16:14 So what that means is , is that my lessons
16:17 , my classrooms , my workflow is now designed in
16:21 a way that serves my teaching and my students learning
16:25 needs . Okay , next , So now with today
16:29 we're gonna um , next slide . Yeah , so
16:34 we got to basically start doing a kind of a
16:37 very quick assignment . So you guys are going to
16:39 pretend to be my students um next , so I'm
16:43 going to put a , I'm going to put a
16:46 link actually , Eddie is doing that for you right
16:49 now George . Okay , so the link is there
16:52 . So as I go to that assignment , I
16:54 should be able to see a whole bunch of people
16:57 kind of popping up into this classroom . So if
17:00 you want to join us in this kind of a
17:01 wonderful creative assignment , please come and join us and
17:08 Eddie . Hopefully you post that over so folks can
17:10 join with us and once again all you gotta do
17:12 is click on that link and you log into Canada
17:15 . Um If you don't have a camera account ,
17:17 just log in with a free account on camera dot
17:20 com . You don't need an education or a pro
17:22 account to do this activity and we'll hopefully see some
17:25 folks joining up here in the top right window .
17:27 You can see georges in this as well . Um
17:30 Jason I shared the link . Um Unfortunately Stream Yard
17:35 , the program that we're using to stream is a
17:37 little funky every once in a while with these links
17:39 . So I'm gonna create a bit lee really quick
17:42 . It has to be a certain number of characters
17:43 or it doesn't get posted over to youtube correctly or
17:45 twitter correctly . Um so I'm gonna let this is
17:48 what do we call this in media arts George .
17:50 We would like you to fill a little time here
17:53 . Absolutely . Some things get created in the back
17:56 end , but just give me two seconds like this
17:59 is what we do in teaching , right ? Always
18:02 this is nothing new for me . It's been a
18:05 year of this , right ? All right . So
18:07 basically let me explain this assignment a lot of it
18:10 . So one of the wonderful things about , you
18:12 know , Canberra is distinctive , simultaneous collaboration . And
18:16 what does that really mean ? One of the things
18:19 that we used to use , you know , and
18:21 when we wanted to do collaborative work in the classroom
18:24 is to use google doc . I mean , that's
18:26 just what we did , right ? I mean we
18:27 would use google and then we would , everybody happened
18:30 and everybody will write something and this is how we're
18:33 , this is the place where the mines starting to
18:36 meet . But what that was was it was based
18:40 on text , it was based on words . So
18:43 what is happening now with Canberra is that now we
18:47 can incorporate a visual language visual symbology . So a
18:51 lot of the times the storytelling then , instead of
18:54 just using words , were now having the kind of
18:57 the possibility of using visual representations . Now , a
19:03 lot of my students are newcomers or you know ,
19:06 they have different kind of learning um stages . So
19:11 one of the things that I found really , really
19:13 useful is to be able to kind of incorporate the
19:16 visual language into , you know , into their ,
19:19 into their expression , into their learning . So ,
19:22 what this assignment was is a very simple assignment ,
19:25 Kandinsky is amazing and it's a very famous painter and
19:29 what he does is he uses very simple elements of
19:32 art and the principle of design . So I'm gonna
19:36 give you the instruction about how to use this .
19:38 So when you happen you can just kind of go
19:40 right to work . So Kandinsky uses like beautiful colors
19:45 , lines , shapes , forms . So if you
19:46 think about what the elements of arts are , it's
19:49 kind of actually right here in so if I put
19:53 in line right , there's all these lines and I
19:57 put graphics , there's all these things . So Canada
20:00 has literally millions and millions of visual images that you
20:05 can drop on and then you can then kind of
20:09 go to one of the studios and you can basically
20:12 click and then now you have one element that is
20:15 under and the next student that can add to it
20:18 and add to it and add to it . So
20:20 it becomes a collaborative creative process for the students .
20:24 Now , when we did this assignment , we were
20:27 basically virtual learning . And what I did is I
20:30 created basically from a blank template . I wanted them
20:33 to kind of feel kind of this almost like as
20:38 if it was , they were in a studio ,
20:40 they were in the classroom . So that's why they're
20:42 assistant table one our studio . So now we have
20:46 people to come in and join and then , so
20:48 this and we , I created basically six different studio
20:52 spaces for the students to join . And when we
20:55 did this , we had up to 70 students working
20:59 at the same time . And what you're seeing just
21:02 kind of as we're beginning here is very , is
21:04 very , very kind of similar to what Jason and
21:08 Okay , and Ryan is now working so wonderful .
21:12 So basically go to , if you're , as you're
21:15 coming in into this workspace , choose one table .
21:19 Right ? And if you go to the notes section
21:22 , if you go to the notes section , you're
21:24 gonna be able to see basically the name . So
21:27 I put , you know , to personalize it further
21:29 to kind of replicate what the real classroom looks like
21:32 . Put your 123456 So basically , you can have
21:35 about maybe six students per each one of the studios
21:39 . So when you are now , let me see
21:42 more people coming in . Okay , looks like we
21:45 got Ryan in . I'll add Ryan to our table
21:48 . Okay , well , maybe the two of you
21:50 can work um , you know , the first table
21:53 . So just continue to kind of basically add your
21:56 images to this . Now , I can imagine doing
21:59 this kind of doing more like kind of almost like
22:01 I said summary for a , you know , for
22:05 a reading um for like , you know for reading
22:09 assignment , they can do this together for Biology .
22:12 So whatever assignment or content that you have that you
22:16 feel you want to basically have basically a meeting of
22:19 the mind space . So this is a very good
22:23 way to kind of do that . The other thing
22:25 that makes it really , really amazing to me is
22:28 when you have about 30 students all working at the
22:30 same time , there's a function here that allows you
22:34 to basically click on the lower right hand side .
22:37 You can basically kind of click on that and you
22:40 see all of the templates displayed on one , you
22:44 know , in one window . And what is that
22:47 important ? The reason why that is important is because
22:51 there you go . Thank you Jason . The reason
22:53 why the reason why that is important is because a
22:56 lot of the times as teachers when we're teaching ,
22:58 we're wondering , you know , why , why am
23:01 I students thinking , you know , what are they
23:04 really thinking about when they're doing the assignment ? When
23:07 I click on that on that on the little tiles
23:11 and I get to see all of the basically all
23:13 of the working spaces literally is an animation of my
23:17 students thinking process in real time . So when I
23:21 see something that is kind of , that requires my
23:24 , um , that requires my reply or my comments
23:29 . I go to that page and then I use
23:31 the site where there's an add comments so I can
23:35 basically give comments literally in real time . So I
23:39 get to see my students thinking process in real time
23:43 and I can give comments in real time . Now
23:47 We're Georgia looks like a few folks entered . Our
23:51 president looks like the bit lease maybe got confused .
23:54 Like there were , there were , there were two
23:56 lengths and there was a private chat . So the
23:59 first one got sent out early and I think like
24:01 22 of the people that were joining us today ,
24:04 we're not one . Um , but we're making corrections
24:07 . So if you're still with us and you weren't
24:08 super frustrated with that whole process , there is a
24:11 new bit li I will post it three or four
24:14 more times , click that bad boy . But you
24:16 can see now George is probably like , oh ,
24:19 someone decided to show up for class today . So
24:21 here we go . Now . They're joining though .
24:23 We got him joining and I'll click back out of
24:26 the grid views to you . And George had a
24:29 table and start editing away . You can just see
24:31 what we're doing . Hey , there we go brad
24:33 comment . We made it All right . We got
24:34 people coming in a process . So I encourage you
24:39 to kind of , you know , you can use
24:41 this , you know , right now on this table
24:43 one , you know , you can use just the
24:45 basic elements . So you can use the basic elements
24:48 , type in whatever signs , you know , whatever
24:51 triangle shapes , you know , whatever image that comes
24:54 to your mind . And when you're working on this
24:57 thing , you know , try to see what the
24:58 overall image is already on the , on the page
25:01 of related , connected to one other image that you
25:04 feel is connected to your sense of creativity , your
25:08 narrative . You know , we did this for a
25:12 movie analysis where the students actually created . Uh basically
25:19 a scene like imagine 30 students creating a reinterpretation analysis
25:25 of a scene in the movie . And we watched
25:28 the movie Minnery for the asian american um , pacific
25:32 islander heritage month last month . So we did that
25:35 . So it was an amazing thing . So you
25:37 can see how they're different , you know , different
25:40 elements are just coming together and then there we go
25:44 . So we now have , you know , table
25:45 four is now beginning to , we have table six
25:49 , you know , I mean , we can ,
25:50 you can just basically choose whichever want . And if
25:53 you find one that kind of picks your interest ,
25:55 there you go , Thank you and me as a
25:57 teacher , I'm able to see the tiles , literally
26:00 , this is now see my students creativity and they're
26:05 thinking process . So no more guessing around what they're
26:08 thinking about right now . You can see somebody's thinking
26:11 about how many days left in school , I think
26:13 George , you know ? So there we go .
26:18 That's a very interesting background to use basically a story
26:21 wars there , I mean , you know , so
26:23 basically it gives you a sense of the power of
26:26 this tool , right ? It goes beyond what is
26:29 just in the worksheet , but it gives you literally
26:32 the thinking and the learning process that our students is
26:34 going , you know , That is our students is
26:38 going through and that's what makes a 27 year old
26:41 veteran teacher excited . It's kind of almost like another
26:44 view into by students learning , Okay , that's great
26:49 George . So we can work on this . Um
26:51 , there's some slides at the after this where we
26:55 can spend a little bit more time on this .
26:56 Why should we do that ? Absolutely , yeah .
27:00 Just just shuffled through the different slides and just enjoy
27:03 the kind of , the images that's being created and
27:06 I'm giving you very little direction , Right ? I
27:09 mean , but then if you look at it ,
27:10 things are happening , and as you're kind of working
27:14 , you see the other people who are working on
27:16 the same page by that , you know , by
27:18 how the , you know , the names are appearing
27:21 on there . You can give comments , you know
27:23 , to each other , you can go to other
27:26 studios and give them comments . So it becomes a
27:29 very interactive and very engaging type of an activity .
27:33 Okay , five days still summer looks like somebody out
27:37 of the table here . So that's a new feature
27:40 that somebody found , which is awesome . I'm glad
27:42 you found the table and the graphical interface . So
27:45 that's great . And as you guys are working on
27:48 this thing , I'm just gonna kind of , you
27:49 know , tell you why some of the other ,
27:52 you know , templates that we have to offer here
27:54 in Canberra . Um we have a lot of work
27:57 sheets , you know , and this worksheets are basically
28:00 really , you know when we designed this worksheets ,
28:03 we don't just create a worksheet that is just out
28:05 of the blue , we actually use the content standards
28:08 and we're always improving on , you know , the
28:11 quality and the specific specific subjects based on the candidate
28:16 , based on the content standards and the content standards
28:19 , as you know , is basically , you know
28:21 , organized by grade level and by um learning goals
28:25 . And then another thing that is really , really
28:28 interesting is the posters . Now when I think about
28:30 posters , I don't just think of it . So
28:32 yeah , let's just make something pretty when I use
28:35 posters as a template . I usually think , okay
28:39 , what is the thinking process of the learning pattern
28:42 that I want and usually is much more organic .
28:45 So if I have content of knowledge that is required
28:48 , a more organic understanding organic expression of their understanding
28:52 . I tend to use posters because it's a flat
28:55 space , it allows me to move around you know
28:58 you know from side to side up and down .
29:00 But if I have a very logical sequence of kind
29:03 of instructions of subject matter like say chronological , historical
29:06 chronological events or say mathematical calculations or scientific experiment that
29:12 requires very logical sequencing . I tend to use infographics
29:17 you know and every single assignment that I do ,
29:20 every single assignment that I do because I teach in
29:22 a cohort or what is called a pathway . So
29:26 all my lessons are integrated . There's not one lesson
29:28 that is not integrated . I send it to all
29:30 my , I sent to my english teacher , I
29:32 sent it to my biology teacher of physics teachers ,
29:35 chemistry or math teachers , social studies teachers and then
29:39 they literally use that lesson template that I created and
29:43 we actually do our collaborative grading together . So our
29:47 students now are not truncated in their learning . So
29:51 they see this learning as literally everything everything in school
29:55 is relevant in my econ class um in my economics
30:00 for my seniors we created an entire business business plan
30:05 and this is in collaboration with my english teachers who
30:07 taught them how to write correct sentences , you know
30:10 , grammatical , you know , fix on their grammars
30:14 , you know , and I have the income teachers
30:16 are teaching them about the capitalist system , about the
30:18 business , you know , all the things that pertain
30:20 in economics and here I am , I'm teaching them
30:22 about how to make a online um basically digital storefront
30:27 . So again , it is an amazing tool for
30:30 collaboration , is an amazing tool for creativity . Is
30:34 an amazing tool for viewing what your students are thinking
30:38 in real time . Yeah , I love George .
30:42 That's just uh , that really hits the nail ,
30:44 right ? That's just that is exactly what a lot
30:46 of teachers out there are are looking for . And
30:49 um just fantastic . We had some comments come in
30:52 there and that kind of reset . I want to
30:54 I want to answer some of these because I do
30:55 think they're important . Ryan popped it again and said
30:57 when using the photos , videos and music , are
30:59 these all creative comments approved ? Yeah , So ,
31:03 great question Ryan . So , we actually have multiple
31:05 layers on camera for education around both the photos videos
31:10 elements that we actually do use machine learning . So
31:13 we have safe search where students can't even search for
31:16 inappropriate words . Were consistently trying to stay on top
31:19 of that . But students are pretty creative . We
31:21 have machine learning over our image library , which are
31:24 safer schools . So we're actually filtering down the camp
31:26 a pro image library for safer schools . And then
31:29 we also have manual audits as well . So ,
31:32 um , we are doing everything we can to make
31:34 this product safer schools based on the photos , the
31:37 images , the videos . Um , and we'll continue
31:39 to improve our service . Yeah , we are applying
31:42 as well . Yeah . One of our , one
31:44 of our huge uh , fans of canvas out there
31:49 , chris Giles said , uh , you know ,
31:50 this is pretty risky life , but he loves it
31:53 . Hey , we love taking risks , chris so
31:56 we're going to our good friend brad Minister says ,
31:59 Dude , I can't stop designing . This is so
32:01 like google docs , but for designs , love love
32:04 , love , Love it . So we'll let you
32:06 get back to the , to the action here George
32:08 . Um , but just you know what they're showing
32:11 , you know , what Ryan brought up is that
32:13 very , is what teachers go through all the time
32:15 , which is classroom management , right ? And ,
32:18 and you know , and because it's so interactive is
32:21 so absolutely interactive that you can actually see what the
32:24 students are doing in real time . So a lot
32:26 of the times I have not had any problem with
32:30 with content at all in this entire year of teaching
32:33 , you know , so I think it's because of
32:35 the interactivity of it and then real time , I
32:38 think that kind of really makes classroom management much ,
32:41 much easier , you know , and I can ,
32:43 I mean , I'm so looking forward to using this
32:45 in the real classroom , you know , because when
32:48 I go back to the classroom in august , I'm
32:50 going to be able to project this onto the screen
32:52 , right ? And the students are going to have
32:54 their computers and their laptops , which , you know
32:56 , all of them are now basically expert using ,
32:59 you know , so it's gonna be an amazing experience
33:02 . I think this next school year is going to
33:04 be just a year of amazing innovation , but innovation
33:08 that is humanistic , that allows us to be in
33:12 this physical space at the same time really have this
33:15 quantum leap in being able to communicate in ways that
33:19 we never thought possible , you know ? So I'm
33:22 super excited about this coming year because being in the
33:25 classroom and using this technology is going to elevate literally
33:29 the learning with that personalized in the same space ,
33:33 kind of interactions . Okay , that's great George .
33:37 And I'm just kind of fall in a couple of
33:38 questions here . I'm going to kind of go top
33:40 to bottom here . So chris asked , can that
33:42 be submitted in canvas or used in canvas collaborations or
33:45 group assignments ? Um chris we touched at the beginning
33:48 . So assignment will be ready in the next couple
33:50 of weeks where you can actually create a canvas assignment
33:53 directly from canvas . Students will log into canvas ,
33:56 they click the cancel button , they'll be taken to
33:58 canvas to where they can complete the assignment and submit
34:01 it back directly through canvas . So that integration is
34:03 coming . Um let's just scan a couple more .
34:06 How accessible is it ? All text screen reader compatible
34:09 ? Um We do have all text on the road
34:11 map . Um I I'd have to double check when
34:13 the road map is coming kim but we are working
34:15 very quick and fast to make this an accessible tool
34:18 . So um things like all tech screen reader compatibility
34:22 , those are all in our road map to make
34:23 sure that we are making this tool accessible for everybody
34:27 . I think those are the two questions that I
34:30 just got to stand in the comments . Yeah ,
34:32 perfect . And I think that chris asked the question
34:34 , you know about , you know , I think
34:36 we address that because the teachers is were actively engaged
34:41 in the , you know , the students learning .
34:43 So I think that really kind of really help manage
34:46 the classroom and under students behaviors online . So Okay
34:51 . All right . So , um , should we
34:53 continue to kind of work on this a little ?
34:55 How much more time do we have ? I think
34:57 we're out of time George unfortunately , which is great
35:00 , which is good . Um , that's always good
35:03 . So , I mean , I think really quickly
35:05 just to close , I'll just quickly go through all
35:07 the different presentation types . Over the next 30 seconds
35:10 we have presentations , lesson plan outlines , parent and
35:13 school announcements , infographics , posters as George touched on
35:17 of all different types . Worksheets , virtual classroom kits
35:21 , group work activities , student video templates , social
35:24 emotional learning activities . All you gotta do is sign
35:27 up here . You are a district please . Um

35:53 , but I want to make sure we respect everyone's
35:55 time so I'll turn it back to you . Yeah
