How I Use It
Canva is a multi use tool that I used with my students to create Aquatic Science related memes, magazines, and graphic art projects. I used it as a formative assessment tool, to show mastery of several topics in a high school Aquatic Science classroom. What I loved about Canva is the ability to create multiple sets of professional looking art. This universal approach to design, lends itself to replace PowerPoint in my classroom. Students love to create modernized art and then download these well designed pictures and posted them on various social outlets. Canva allows you the ability to create multiple forms of photographic media. Canva is easy to use because it allows users to drag and drop content into professionally designed templates.
I feel that Canva is an excellent tool for sharing meaningful experiences in a classroom. Having the ability to create professionally looking media as a formal assessment was paramount in my opinion. If a picture is worth a thousand words then Canva is definitely responsible for a million more.
