The LearnPlatform is a website designed to support educators and other stakeholders in knowing which apps, websites, and extensions have been approved for use in Canyons School District. Technology tools will be approved through LearnPlatform if they follow FERPA, CIPA, and COPPA. Although, a tool may be approved for use through the LearnPlatform does not mean that it follows best practice. It is always good practice for educators to talk to their school’s Instructional Coach or the Instructional Supports Department Specialist that is over that content area to help decide if a tool truly supports best practices.
Educators can access the LearnPlatform by going to: https://learn.canyonsdistrict.org/. From there, educators can look to see if the product is already in Learn. If the product has not been approved or denied, the educator can request it through the platform using the instructions provided in the video to the right (start at 5:47). It’s important to get products approved for use in order to ensure that the products being used follow the appropriate safety protocols for students.
