As nominated by Meagan Kelly of I Heart Edu.
Canva makes it amazingly simple for everyone to create professional quality graphic designs. Its online design platform brings together a simple drag-and-drop design tool and a library of more than one million photographs, graphics and fonts, allowing anyone to take an idea and present it beautifully in print or online.
Canva can be used to design almost anything: presentations, posters, blog content, cards, online marketing materials, invitations, flyers and so much more. Since launching, Canva has grown to more than 10 million users in 179 countries around the world. It is now available in 25 different languages, and recently launched on iPhone and iPad.
Because it’s so easy to pick up and use, Canva is a brilliant tool for creating educational content. Potential applications include using Canva to create resources for the classroom, or asking students to collaborate on projects like digital posters or infographics.
