Introduction: Canva Tutorial

This tutorial will help get set up with a Canva account and show you how to begin your first project!




Step 1: Navigate to the Website

Open a new tab on your browser and type in the web address:

Step 2: Sign Up

Click on the "Sign up" button in the top right corner of the web page.

Step 3: Sign Up With Google

Select the button that says "Sign up with Google."

Step 4: Set Up Your Account

Select the button that is titled "Student."

Step 5: Team Members

For now, we are going to skip this step until we are ready to work with teams on Canva.

Select the "Skip >" button in the top right corner of this screen.

Step 6: Start Your First Design

Now, it is time to select your first project.

Click on the button to create a "Poster."

Step 7: Choose a Template

Now, we will choose our template for the poster.

Select the "In Our Classroom" template.

Step 8: Edit Your Project

Finally, it is time to let your creativity show!

Edit and personalize your poster to show the rules and expectations of our classroom. The template does provide great ideas, but I want to see your voice on the poster. You must edit each text bubble.

Step 9: Uploading Photos

Eventually, you will be able to upload your own photos that you find for your projects. However, for this first project, we will not use this tool. I will make a separate tutorial for using this tool safely and responsibly.

Step 10: Publishing Your Project

When you are finished, make sure you give your project a title in the middle of the blue bar, so you can find it later. Next, select the "Publish" button to make your project shareable. Lastly, copy the link for your poster by selecting the "Share Link" button and share it on our Google Classroom assignment for this tutorial.
