Canva for Education is a powerful yet easy-to-use graphic design tool that allows educators to create beautiful teaching resources of all kinds, from posters, to presentations and documents, to videos, and much, much more! With more than 250,000 thousand templates, graphics, photos, and videos, Canva for Education is useful for both novices and more experienced graphic designers alike. And the best thing about it is, it’s free! Canva is optimized for Chromebooks and app smashes with Google Workspace, allowing teachers to get creative and use the best features of each tool together. This project-based course will take a deep dive into Canva’s feature set, and provide ample opportunity for designing visual resources that will support your teaching and directly integrate into any teaching and learning environment. While Canva for Education will be the primary application for this course, other apps, such as Google Workspace, as well as other online resources will be explored and used throughout the course. This course is designed for music educators at all grade levels and disciplines.
