Do you remember how laborious it was to create school requirements in the olden days, that is before the digital era? Students would cut out from magazines and newspapers to make collage projects, while teachers would draw by hand on brown and thin Manila papers to make presentations in their classes. Today, technology has made learning so much easier for everyone with the help of Canva for Education.
What’s Canva for Education?
Canva for Education is an online design platform that offers a wide range of templates and customization that can be used in the classroom. Teachers can create and personalize lectures, infographics, and videos while students can create slides for their individual and group reports.
Canva empowers students to be creative by providing customizable templates, graphics, and multimedia elements. They can create collages, posters, and digital projects like web designs or short video clips that they can incorporate in their slides for their school reports. This allows them to present their ideas in a visually compelling and impactful manner. By giving students these tools, Canva nurtures their imagination and equips them with valuable skills for the future.
For educators, Canva offers tools to create visually appealing presentations. With templates, drag-and-drop functionality, and multimedia integration, teachers can craft dynamic lessons that engage students. Whether it's a slideshow, infographic, or handout, Canva helps teachers deliver information effectively.
