Digital Learning and Innovative Practices

It can at times be difficult to find ways to integrate technology into primary classrooms. Teachers often get intimidated by all of the new technology thrown at them. Canva makes it easy for technology novices to look like experts! Teachers can now personalize their creations making them more engaging for students. Even primary-aged students can take the lead doing coding activities, app smashing with easy-to-use apps like FlipGrid, and using the drawing extension!. Adding those higher-level thinking skills is easy when using Canva. High engagement + Creativity = Memorable Learning Experiences.
