Creative Posters with Canva

Designing professional, cool looking posters can be done easily with Canva.  

Canva has a drag and drop feature that allows you to select from 1,000's of images (free and paid) or add your own images from your computer.  Below is a sample poster I made in Canva to highlight our Moore@School Digital Transformation.

One of the coolest features of Canva was the ability to edit images within the program.  This allows you to make changes on the fly with filter colors, tints, contrasts, etc.  The drag and drop text feature has 100's of fonts to choose from, making every Canva poster unique.

Canva is perfect for quick projects in the classroom.  With templates for Facebook cover, profile and Twitter header templates, students would create these social media spots for famous historical characters or significant scientists.

Canva would also be great for making infographics.  There are several templates that can be customized to your specific needs.  

Here is a short video showcasing some of the features of Canva.

Until next time,
