One of Australia’s oldest schools, Newington College educates nearly 2,000 boys from kindergarten through year 12. Before implementing the cloud-based Canvas learning management platform, Newington was known for doing everything well—except technology.
So when school administrators and teachers began searching for a learning platform that supported their student-centered vision for K-12, they were excited to find Canvas. Students say it’s difficult to imagine life before Canvas.
In addition to submitting assignments completely online, students can easily navigate course pages, post to discussions, share materials, and interact with audio, video, and external Web links.
Teachers say Canvas is embedded in students’ lives because it’s multimodal and they can use it in the way that suits them best—on their laptops, smartphones, or other mobile devices. Canvas has helped bring Newington into the digital world.
