On this page, we’ll explain the basics of Canva for Education and show you how to get started as a teacher.
Canva for Education is 100% free for K-12 (primary and secondary) teachers and their students, powering creation and collaboration in every classroom.
You and your students can create and personalize your own designs from scratch, or choose from thousands of high-quality, copyright-free educational templates. From presentations to posters, and infographics, to worksheets, project-based learning, and lesson plans, the possibilities are endless.
You can do your best work in Canva, and encourage students to as well. Whether you’re crafting engaging lesson plans and activities or empowering students to tell their own stories, you can edit and create with ease thanks to Canva’s drag-and-drop editor.
Creativity, critical thinking, design, and visual communication are central to preparing our students for the world outside of school. Canva fosters these skills by making it easy to produce and complete group projects, videos, posters and more.
And as a teacher, you can also deliver impactful feedback to reach and motivate students all in one place. Share, review, and give feedback on student work in real-time.
Here at Canva, we think learning is a gift. That’s why Canva for Education is free for eligible teachers and students, is available all over the world and isn’t restricted to any country. Learn more about our Eligibility Guidelines to see if you qualify.
