SLPS has transitioned to Canvas, a modern and innovative learning management system (LMS).
Canvas is the 21st Century LMS. Adaptable. Reliable. Customizable. Easy to use. Mobile. Time-saving. And, perhaps most importantly, it gets used. That’s because it’s designed to get out of your way, to let you do your thing. Every last feature, every last interface is crafted to save you time and effort and to make teaching and learning easier.
One of the key features of Canvas is the integration with Skyward. Meaning all students are loaded and ready to go in your courses. All Canvas assignments will automatically transfer into your Skyward Grade Book.
Employees can log into Canvas using your SLPS credentials. You can also find a shortcut to Canvas in the Office365 waffle.
Training opportunities will be posted in Frontline for teachers, administrators, and district personnel.
If you are a district employee and are having trouble accessing a professional development course in Canvas please contact Julia Hilburn, Julia.Hilburn@stlucieschools.org.
The Talent Development Department offers an array of professional development courses for St. Lucie Public Schools non-instructional and instructional staff members via Canvas.
SLPS employees are expected to:
- complete courses with the highest level of integrity
- complete each assignment individually by the scheduled due dates
- collaborate with colleagues within the course and participate in group discussion boards
- receive full credit on all assignments (if asked to resubmit).
SLPS is proud to offer three technology cohorts made up of teachers to take the lead and grow the implementation of technology in their classrooms and throughout their school sites.
Talent Development is focusing on the technology integration matrix for classroom instruction and technology leadership opportunities. Each cohort will participate in virtual PLC’s, coaching cycles, video-based coaching, Microsoft collaboration and professional development opportunities. In addition, participants will receive support and feedback from district Leaders of Innovative Technology specialists.
MIEs use Microsoft tools in the classroom and have learned the fundamentals of applying technology in education. This is the first step on an exciting journey of joining a professional network of enthusiastic educators who come together to learn, share, and grow.
