It is a new year and it is time to get COOL in Birdville ISD! As Creators of Our Own Learning, we will have the opportunity to collaborate with peers across the district and self-direct our learning so that it has the most impact on our specific students.
Our district now has a powerful tool, called Canvas, which is a comprehensive learning management system that opens up many possibilities for expanding learning beyond just face-to-face. This year, Canvas will be used primarily as a vehicle for professional learning, but will be available to manage and empower student learning next year. By investing in your COOL group, you will not only have the opportunity to make quality learning happen for yourself, but you can also begin thinking about how you could use Canvas with students.
