Canva is a free image creating website that allows users to easily create great looking graphics. Canva makes it very easy to create images, most elements of the image can be simply dragged and dropped onto your blank slate. Canva also allows you to upload your own images to add to your graphic.
The one web tool I use more often than any other is Canva. Canva allows users to create beautiful designs for free. It's simple to use, simply drag and drop items into your image, select your fonts and backgrounds, and boom, you have an awesome looking graphic you can easily share online. - ChrisTuckerEdu
"I feel that Canva is an excellent tool for sharing meaningful experiences in a classroom. Having the ability to create professionally looking media as a formal assessment was paramount in my opinion. If a picture is worth a thousand words then Canva is definitely responsible for a million more." - Graphite review from William J.
"Beside the ipad version of Canva's templates (free or paid) issue, Canva is a must for all educators who are given their first steps into edtech. It's a great tool for introducing design and creativity projects for teachers and students." - Graphite review from Mariano Z.
