Amazing creativity platform for teachers and students!

My overall opinion of this tool is great. I appreciate how it has so many options and details when it comes to creating a poster, a document, or even an info graph. They options are truly limitless! The only thing that I will say is that it seems to be a little easier to manage with a touch screen device. I myself have an iPad, while my students used computers, and the use of a finger on-screen seemed to be a bit easier . But other than that slight factor, this tool is very useful not only for assignments, but also announcements, background pictures, lesson plans, and so much more!

Opportunities are endless

Canva is an app that I can describe as a graphic design center for all. The app is very easy to use and one can spend as little or as much time as they’d like creating beautiful content for their classroom. Canva offers both a free and pro version. The free version has plenty of content available to the user however the pro version does provide access to more options. Canva for Education is free to teachers once verified. Teachers have the option to link their Google classroom or opt to manually input student’s email. Google classroom can be linked directly through Canva and teachers can assign and view submitted work. It is important to note that students who are under the age of 13 must attain their parent’s permission to join Canva and users over the age of 13 must still accept the teacher’s invitation to join. One concern regarding Canva in the classroom is whether there are restrictions to prevent students from accessing inappropriate content within the classroom.

Great for keeping the focus on the actual information rather than art

I love the thousands of options there are in this app. There are so many different creations to choose from and the possibility to change it up and make the edit your own as well. Since many classes like to use projects for grades, This eliminated the time and stress on the actual look of the project without taking time away from the words the student needs to use.

Easy use yet looks very professional

I like canva as a teaching tool because of how it can be used for many purposes in teaching. It is also very easy to use and students would be able to get creative with how they want their work to turn out. This can serve my teaching better because of how I would be able to use the presentation template and other templates to implement in teaching.
