It was super interesting to see all of the different tools that I could use to build a graphic of what I have learned about my ILP. The articles were very fun and interesting to read and it took me a while to decide what I wanted to create my own on. I think that the comic strips would be super fun for a writing assignment so that the students could get creative. I decided to go with a simple one because I wasn’t sure what I could add on mine. I decided to mine on Canva. I wasn’t sure how much to add on mine however, I kept it short and sweet. If you click here you can access my design.
Throughout the process I found that using Canva is the most easy to navigate. I tried to look into the others however, I found it super hard to figure them. Since I am a student that learns best with a direct end result near I thought this would be awesome to do. I wanted to just have the direct thing I have learned so far in my experience in the classroom. I thought that the Canva that I made was pretty self explanatory.
With that being said, I loved working with the site. It was so easy and fun I loved how you could pick from their templates or you could create one from scratch. The templates were endless there was some for thank you’s, wedding invitations, or even just things for school. I thought this site was awesome because you could have a single page or multiple pages so it is easy to make a school project on it. Another thing that I liked was that it recognized me as a new user. I had to create an account so that all my stuff would save. Then, since it new I was new it gave me a tour of the site so that I knew how everything worked. That was really handy so then I knew how to share my work. In addition, I could then make them private or public available. I thought this was great because then you could chose on how to display your project.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience with Canva I would recommend to every teacher because they are a fun way for the students to display their projects. They are easy, fun, and a great way to display your student’s work.
