Get students designing with Canva
You've been living under a rock if you haven't either used or seen the amazing designs that are possible in Canva. I've been using a personal account for years but was excited to discover they now have a FREE education account. This education account allows you to create "classes" and invite students.
Sign up for a regular account using your school email address (https://www.canva.com/signup)
Apply for Canva's Education program
(you will need to send a scanned copy of your teaching qualifications)
Once you have your education account setup, you can invite students to join your class:
Features of the education account include:
creating 'groups' to make sharing easier
leaving feedback directly on students' designs (& students can reply)
creating templates for your class
creating shared folders with images/video (e.g. school logos)

If you're new to Canva or have been designing for quite some time here's a lesson you can roll out immediately. Introduce a new multimodal text into your classroom to spice up your reading and writing block.
