Two Pills Tips: Crazy for Canva!
Play • 8 min

Conquer your presentations with Canva! 



What is Canva? 

  • Web/app based platform 
  • Free, then pay for use of certain images, more templates, etc 
  • Build your own worksheets/exercises 
  • I use frequently for brief presentations. I search “blank presentation” and then modify the template of the presentation. I enjoy the beautiful designs-so much better than the traditional slide shows we are used to. Additionally, we have to remember that most of our students have been seeing slideshows since they started school. Many of use utilized chalk/dry erase in addition to these slideshows. Our presentations should be consciously designed and engaging.  
  • It *is* different than traditional slideshows. Bullet points/outline is not as easily formatted-it’s more of a free flowing design 
  • I used the newsletter function to create a fun creative syllabus 
  • Professional looking certificates/awards 
  • Created digital escape room content 
  • Unique templates like a timeline, gantt chart, etc 

Editing functions: 

  • Gridlines 
  • Slide sorter to see everything 
  • Copy function to copy similar slides 
  • Download and present easily! Can download as jpg, pdf, ppt, etc 
  • Everything looks so professional!
