Public school teachers are eligible for a free Canva for Education premium account to aid them in distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Education (DepEd) said Thursday.
All K to 12 teachers have to do is register on the graphic design platform's website to access more than two million images, 60,000 templates, 800,000 icons and illustrations and 700 fonts, stickers, videos, elements, and other education-specific content.
The user-friendly page offers templates to support remote learning and resources to make the transition easy. Users can also read articles on education and distance learning on the teachers blog.
Last June, Canva partnered with DepEd for a webinar on the importance of proper tools in the virtual classroom.
"Our goal is to help teachers create simple but engaging classroom content. With a plethora of classroom-friendly templates, relevant to specific learning goals, teachers can create eBooks and eBook covers, beautiful presentations for their subjects, class schedules, worksheets, handouts, online test papers and posters," Canva Manila Country Manager Yani Hornilla-Donato said.
