Canvas Announcements & Digital Social Contracts

The tip I have to share with you today is about the Announcements feature of Canvas. Announcements is a great place to be able to send a quick message or to-do list to your class.

Some examples for using Announcements include:

  • Reminding your students what they need to accomplish to stay on track

  • Point students to resources and links
  • Leave a message for the entire class with video or audio comments
  • Building community and routine

Food for thought:

What might a digital social contract look like for your students? Developing a digital social contract with students is a perfect activity to facilitate some discussion around digital citizenship.
