Canva for Education- for Free!!

Many of you have used Canva previously in your classes for many purposes. If you haven’t, let me introduce you. It is a free website that allows students to create professional looking graphics. It can be used to create posters, infographics, or more!

While it was free before, there were some features that you needed a pro account to use. The good news is that Canva is now offering Canva for Education, free to teachers!

Some of the benefits of the Canva for Education account are:

  • Teachers get a free Pro account, which means you can use additional graphics for free
  • You can set up a class in Canva. This means you can see your students work and it simplifies the process of sharing it with the teacher.
  • There are education specific templates available to use!

You simply need a ncpachina.org email address and you will instantly be upgraded to the Canva for Education account.
