Thank you for sharing the information about Canva. I found it very interesting that the site has lesson plan information and indepth instructional tools to teach students more than just the what the App does. It actually has indepth information about content specific topics that cover Graphic Design Education.
The color wheel and font portion were especially helpful!
Great helpful hints and review of tools available through Canva!

I was a little familiar with using Canva in the classroom (students enjoy making presentations/videos), but I didn't know about the ability to change a background image to transparent. Awesome tip. Thank you.
