  22. 22. 18 Chapter 2: Canva WHAT IS CANVA? Canva is an online tool that allows users to choose hundreds of professionally designed layouts or create owns designs from scratch, for use in presentations, posters, infographics, social media, business cards, and much more (https://www.lynda.com/Design-Page-Layout-tutorials/What- Canva/370410/383499-4.html). Canva loaded with easy-to-use features and functionality that anyone can create a variety of engaging content that gets shared (http://smallbiztrends.com/2015/09/what-is-canva-for-business.html). ADVANTAGES OF CANVA The following are some advantages of Canva: 1. Very easy to use, even for beginners. 2. Integrated with stock photo image bank. 3. Can be used for free. (Source: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2079100/canva-review-free-tool- brings-much-needed-simplicity-to-design-process.html) Chapter 2 CANVA PREZI
  23. 23. Chapter 2: Canva 19 BENEFITS OF CANVA IN THE CLASROOM The following are some benefits of Canva : 1. Easy to Use Canva is very easy to use. Students simply sign up with their Google account. If no Google account, an email address and a password is required. Once the account is set up it is easy to start. 2. Think-Pic-Share Think – First, ask students to think about what they learned and find a way to summarize it. Being articulate is a very important 21st century skill and not one students do very well on their own. Pic – Next, find a picture (at this point teach about creative commons) that is a good graphical summarization of what was learned. This is also a skill students do not do well on their own. They want to choose crazy pictures that are not pleasing to the eye, or pictures that are not simple enough for a textual overlay. Basically students are stealing other pictures and they need to learn how to do it appropriately. Students need to become good at choosing a picture that accurately reflects their learning. Share - This is the most important step. Gone are the days where students turn in work that it is only seen by the teacher, graded and then returned. When students share their creations on something like a Padlet or Tackk or others web 2.0 applications, the extended learning begins to take place. Once they are done and have shared their work, they look to see what others have turned in. Students will compare their designs with the other students and begin thinking about their thinking – or better yet thinking about their learning. It is a step we can not devalue – because it helps with metacognition and deeper understanding.
  24. 24. 20 Chapter 2: Canva 3. Quick Reflection Canva can be used as a quick reflection tool. For examples, a six word summary about what was just learned. 4. The Great Hook Get students excited about an upcoming unit –use Canva to send out some kind of clue or hook using the Remind app. Sending out secret messages really helps to get the excitement going before a unit even begins. 5. Collaborative Designing Students can share a Canva with another student – and together they can work to make it better. It might be smart to make each Canva go through one other “student editors” or “Co-creators” eyes before being published. (Source: http://www.hollyclark.org/2015/07/31/2018/)

  57. 57. Chapter 5: Easel.ly 53 WHAT IS EASEL.LY? Infographics are a visual way to represent information quick and clear.

Users can re-edit to a new Vheme, change the background, add shapes, text, objects, or upload own images. The objects have a nice range of icon choices perfect for creating charts. (https://www.smore.com/h2pg-easel-ly). Easel.ly is a simple web tool that empowers anyone to create and share powerful visuals even though they have no design experience needed. The aim of easel.ly is to change the way people view and share information (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/easelly/id934680962?mt=8). BENEFITS OF EASEL.LY IN THE CLASSROOM 1. Can be used for any subject Using easel.ly ties in the visual and the educational components quite nicely. Not only teachers can use easel.ly to teach a specific unit or lesson, students also can create them on their own for projects and homework to help drive home the content they are supposed to be learning. Chapter 5 EASEL.LY PREZI
  58. 58. 54 Chapter 5: Easel.ly Here are a few examples: • Infographics in Math Easel.ly can be used to help display pertinent information on a wall, students’ homework binders, or as part of a study sheet for a test. Teachers can also use it as a way to remind students of formulas, break down a specific process, or just reiterate information in a way that is more visually appealing that reading out of a textbook. • English and Literature Classes One of the areas where people tend to avoid visuals is in classes that are steeped in reading and writing. But this is where easel.ly could really help a huge number of students who have a difficult time with reading comprehension or who do not like the subject matter. Book reports, homework, plot and theme synopses, and even word breakdowns and definitions can all be placed in an infographic format that helps a visual learner absorb more of what is being discussed in class. • Scientific Infographics Improve the scientific process for examples photosynthesis, cell multiplication, the tectonic plates, or the Periodic Table of Elements by creating an extra visually appealing infographic that students can remember. 2. Teaching students to create infographics themselves Teach students to create and use infographics on their own if the school have access to a computer lab, tablets or laptops and lead a lesson how to use platforms like Easel.ly to create infographics.
