Tech You Have To Try


I always get asked about easy programs to make brochures, pamphlets, infographics or other school documents that teachers need to create. Canva is always my answer. Canva is a graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents and other visual content. The app already includes templates for users to use. It is easy to use and creates beautiful documents to share and utilize anywhere, whether you intend to print or post the document online. Learn more or start using Canva by clicking here.
