Canva is great for creating graphics and posters, but it can also be used to create presentations! Consider using a Canva Presentation for a lesson, staff meeting, or demonstration. This is a great alternative to Google Slides or PowerPoint. 


To create a presentation, navigate to Canva either through the Staff Portal, then sign-in with Google with a CCS account.
