  • And now for a “technology tip” from Ms. Solomon! If something isn’t working in your Canvas app — an assignment, a video, or anything else — try accessing Canvas through the Safari app on your iPad, instead! Just go to the WMS homepage, tap on the 3 lines in the top left corner, then select the link to Canvas.  And then it’s almost certain to work!!  Any other problems or concerns with your iPad? Just submit an online “Student Tech. Help Request” — and Ms. Solomon will have the solution!
