Welcome back parents and students. It was great seeing some of you at expectation night and seeing all of the smiling faces. 7th grade history is a Canvas class. What's Canvas? It's a Learning Management System (LMS) that is an online based program. This means that students will use the computer and Internet often in class and at home. With that being said it is strongly encouraged, though not required, that your student bring an appropriate device (ie: any tablet, netbook, or laptop). Although students can access the Canvas app on their phones some activities and assignments are not always able to be accessed on this system (ie: on-line discussions, extended writing). Please do not think that I am advising you to go out and purchase a new device for your student. If you have a device at home that you feel comfortable allowing your student to bring to school that can connect to wi-fi, then feel free to send it with your child daily. Please note that your child will be solely responsible for this device.
We look forward to a great school year. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions @ canvas.allenisd.org
