We have 2 suggested ways of utilizing Worksheets in Canva and Teams:
- Canva Video Recordings
- OneNote Class Notebooks
Canva Video Recordings
After finding the worksheet of your choice, you have the ability to customize the worksheet with the content and images you would like, or leave it the way it is. When you are done editing, you can send this template directly to Teams as an Assignment or Post. The students will open the template and edit the worksheet within Canva. When they are ready to justify their thoughts and learning they can click the three dots in the top right corner and click present and record. This allows them to record a video while explaining their work.
OneNote Class Notebooks
We think one of the best practices for using worksheets in Teams is to insert the printout in OneNote and then assign the OneNote page.
- Use the draw tool for students to easily annotate, answer, and write on the worksheet.
- Use the audio tool to have your students record and explain or justify their thinking.
- Easily type answers on the document
- Add anchor charts, videos, images, insert Flipgrid and other resources to enhance this formative assessment piece
