We are all visual learners. We all have different learning styles, but a picture is worth a thousand words to us all. And that’s why Canva is a fantastic tool for learning. Educators can use it to present material to students in a visual manner, and students can use it to “articulate” new concepts in a clear and intuitive way.
One of the best things about Canva is that it allows us to take visual learning to a new level: Students and teachers can become “design thinkers,” meaning we can become skilled at imagining and creating solutions to problems rather than identifying existing ones. Learning and teaching happen as we envision, create, share, and revise. All we need are the right tools for the job.
‘You can transform the world when you approach it with the goal of imagining and creating solutions,’ write the creators of Design Thinking for Educators.
