Canvas and Edcite share a philosophy: we want to give educators powerful tools to create better futures for their students. At Edcite, we have seen a lot of growth in K12 for Canvas because, as schools and districts are moving toward more online curriculum, they now need the LMS capabilities that were once only used by colleges and universities. Canvas is a flexible framework that districts can set up to meet these needs. With K-12 customers in 49 of the 50 states and 4,000 customers overall, Canvas has become the solution for districts across the country.
Much like Edcite, Google Classroom is a powerful, free tool for teachers. Teachers nationwide use Google Classroom’s suite of tools to send assignments to students and manage their class stream. We are really excited to be integrating with Google Classroom Gradebook as an additional step in this journey.
March 14 is National Pi Day! [ Insert your own annual Pi Day pie joke. ] Pi Day is all about 3.14159265359, the mathematical constant that appears in formulas, physics, and even architecture.

With 2019’s March Madness set to begin on March 19th, educators have more than their basketball brackets to prepare!! With my last few posts focusing on literacy, it is time to give math some love! Similar to cultivating a culture of reading in your classrooms and schools, it important to create a culture of math: to make math cool! It just so happens that March gives us, as educators, the perfect opportunity to do so.
