Canvas is a robust learning platform where students, teachers, classmates, and parents can all participate in the learning process. Our teachers are in the process of learning this platform and we will provide training and instruction to our students and families. Canvas will provide an easy-to-navigate and engaging digital experience where our teachers can provide live instruction, videos, breakout rooms, assignments, and facilitate online discussions and learning. As an educator, learning Canvas is a daunting task. Please be patient with our staff as they navigate this new learning platform. Once fully engaged, Canvas will provide a uniform and dynamic learning experience for all of GUSD’s students and we will be able to continue with it when we are able to return to on-campus instruction. In addition, Canvas is the most utilized online learning platform used in colleges and universities. Learning this platform will enable our students to engage in distance learning and dual enrollment opportunities in the future. There are a couple of brief overviews below to help you begin to learn about this new program.
