BHS faculty earning Kung Fu Canvas belts

BHS faculty earned 9 Yellow Belts & 6 Orange Belts on the first full day of Kung Fu Canvas, and they've been racking up belts ever since.

In less than two weeks, faculty members had earned:
  • 31 Yellow Belts for a Chromebook
  • 25 Orange Belts for a Chromebook Case
Those who earn the Yellow and Orange belts get their computers and cases months earlier than those who wait for the general 9-12 faculty distribution in late May.

There are additional awards which faculty members can only obtain by earning Kung Fu Canvas belts, and a dozen folks are already earning them:
  • 12 Blue Belts for a Bluetooth Mouse (available sometime in February)
  • 8 Green Belts for a Spare Chromebook Charger (March if not sooner!)
  • 7 Brown Belts for a Headset with Microphone (April if not sooner!)
  • 5 Black Belts for a Digitizer Tablet (May if not sooner!)
Given the enthusiasm of my colleagues, I'm working with Tech Services to accelerate availability of more rewards for mid-to-late February rather than wait until March, April, and May.

I appreciate the effort and dedication so many have already put into learning Canvas and look forward to distributing many more teaching tools in the coming months!
Kung Fu Canvas
Remember, all 9-12 classroom teachers, counselors, and librarians are welcome to join in to earn their first belt whenever they can find the time for 1.5 to 2 hours of training videos and a couple of simple assignments.

Just email Granger Meador to ask to be enrolled in Kung Fu Canvas.
