As Filipino teachers and students kick off yet another school year in virtual classrooms, online design platform Canva offers resources to make learning and interacting more engaging this back-to-school season with Canva Eskwela.
For many Filipino teachers, connecting with their students has become extra challenging with the absence of physical interaction, making learners more prone to fatigue and lack of focus. With Canva Eskwela, teachers can create fun and compelling presentations as well as activities to encourage more lively class discussions.
The Canva Eskwela page features free and visually engaging content especially tailored for educators and learners in the Philippines: from desktop organizers and lesson plan templates, to presentations and ice breakers to make virtual classes more interactive and fun.
“Through Canva Eskwela, we want to express our deep appreciation for our teachers and students who push themselves to teach and learn as we navigate the new normal. We know it is especially challenging for our teachers to reach out to students and inspire them to get excited about school while we continue to hold classes online,” expressed Canva Country Manager Yani Hornilla-Donato. “We want to support them through locally relevant digital education resources that they can easily access for free.”
Canva is known for being user-friendly and accessible even to those with no design background and it is even more convenient for educators to create content from scratch with Canva Eskwela so they can save time and focus on other tasks.
With Canva for Education, students and teachers can also access easy-to-learn resources such as videos and audio recordings that contain tips and guides on designing their materials. Teachers can also find a community where they can share stories and best practices and support one another on the Canva for Filipino Teachers Facebook group.
