Fourth-Grade students at Dandridge Elementary School are using Canvas to show what they know, cut down on paper usage and streamline my grading process, all while gaining valuable 21st Century Job-Ready technology skills. We were super excited to find that Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is included on our Windows 10 update.  This amazing software allows my students to type and highlight on PDF files that I upload and assign in Canvas.
