Canva an amazing tool for students and teachers

By Shindy H. Tupig

Canva, an Australian graphic design application, is used to create presentations and pictures for social media. It is also an online designing and publishing tool with the objective of enabling everyone in the world to design anything and publish anywhere.

On May 27, 2000, the Department of Education hosted webinars about Canva on Facebook Live and YouTube Live Stream through the Information and Communications Technology Services-Educational Technology Unit (ICT-ETU). With the help of Canva Philippines, the webinar improved the teachers’ knowledge of the fundamental components, essential features, and specialized applications of tools in digital art design. As a result, all public-school teachers are welcome to register on Canva using their DEPED email.

This has led to teachers using technology to build attractive lessons, assignments, and projects in the classroom. Also, it is linked to Google Classroom, which is quite advantageous for both teachers and students. With only a few clicks, teachers and learners may create a wide range of graphic designs, including presentations, whiteboards, infographics, bookmarks, cards, video presentations, flyers, worksheets, posters, and many more.

What makes them remarkable is that on March 23, 2023, they unveiled the brand-new Canva era, which includes features like Magic design, Magic Presentation, Draw, Magic Write, Translate, Text to Image, Magic Edit, Play with Animation, Beat Sync, Brand Hub, Layers, Monotype, Grids, Gradients, and Many More that are Free in Canva for Education. These features empower teachers and students to design and create more easily. Canva is a colorful, fascinating, and entertaining platform that is incredibly beneficial to educators and students. It provides a wide range of design options, resources, and features that can be used to improve the teaching and learning experience for both teachers and students.

Finally, Canva may be utilized as an engagement tool to allow students to demonstrate their knowledge to information technology across all academic areas.
