A TiLT Webinar with Jérôme Nogues and Anna Grainger: ‘Easy graphic design for teachers – Using Canva to spruce up your resources.’ Part 2





ALL London organises webinars for the MFL community and this webinar, held in a Zoom room and also viewable on an unlisted YouTube stream, is open to all MFL teachers.  We hope that you will like us and want to join!

We thank Joe Dale for co-ordinating  the TiLT (Technology in Language Teaching)  series of webinars, bringing together teachers who are interested in  developing their use of technology in their teaching.  As well as  enhancing our skills, we also get to meet other ‘keenies’  from across the globe, and can get to know each other informally by chatting before, during and after the webinar.

We also thank the presenters, who give freely of their time and expertise.  Where possible, most sessions are recorded and available for viewing later.


In this second webinar, Anna will demonstrate how to use the collaborative function of Canva. She will show how to create classes for pupils in which projects can be set as well as resources shared and/or created with colleagues. Jérôme will demonstrate how to create a simple video which can also be downloaded as a gif. He will also take you along the creation of a rock-climbing exercise template worksheet. It will be an app smash using the tables creation function in Microsoft Word, the powerful Dictate tool and Canva’s wonderful user-friendly designing interface.


Anna Grainger

Anna is a qualified French and Spanish teacher with over 20 years’ teaching experience.  After the first part of her career spent teaching secondary MFL she moved into middle management in Coventry Adult Education Service. She has now been teaching Spanish for the last few years in a primary school in Coventry where she has developed a passion for early language learning and inspiring young people to embrace languages and culture and to become global citizens.  She has run the Coventry MFL hub for the past 5 years and have recently co-founded Coventry, City of Languages with a colleague, partnering with Warwick and Coventry Universities, local businesses and other stakeholders to promote and encourage uptake of language learning across the city.  She is a British Council Schools’ Ambassador and was recently invited to become a Genially ambassador.

She started to use Canva during lockdown to create digital praise postcards to send to children who had engaged in home learning.  She now finds it one of the easiest and most powerful graphics programmes to create appealing graphics for the classroom and beyond.  She has always enjoyed being creative and I now create graphics using Canva to import into apps such as Learning Apps and Genially to make resources look more aesthetically pleasing.

Jérôme Nogues

Jerome is Head of Department and Head of Digital Learning in a Prep School in beautiful Shropshire. He has been teaching French for over 20 years. He loves using technology in and out of lessons. He also enjoys learning and sharing ideas on social medias with his peers. He is a Microsoft Innovative Education Expert, a Microsoft Innovative Education Master Trainer and an Apple teacher. He is also a keen runner.

00:56:13 ALICE Semple: Cool
00:56:14 Margarita Mortimer: Q what is the advantage of using Canva versus PowerPoint or Word or other apps?
00:56:34 Anna Grainger: Jacques – I had to set up a snapchat account just to link my Bitmoji. I couldn’t find another way to do it

00:57:43 Greg Baxter: @jacques on the Chrome/Edge Bitmoji extension you can sign up with an email now, no longer need a snapchat
00:57:48 Jesus Santos: Thanks Jerome!
00:57:51 Magalie Lalor: Bitmoji application on Chrome
00:58:01 Marie Allirot: Some similarities with Genially @Angela
00:58:05 Yamina Sadek kirk: Merci!
00:58:23 Marie Allirot: I like canva for all the pic / graphic
00:58:27 Angela Doris: Thanks @Marie…I thought that…
00:59:10 Esmeralda Salgado: Appsmashing is the answer
00:59:15 Marie Allirot: I use Canva within Genially
00:59:22 Esmeralda Salgado: Yes
00:59:43 Cecilia Smith: does canva work with genially?
00:59:53 Esmeralda Salgado: Yes
01:00:00 Spasova Aleksandrina: Q: Thank you for the wonderful presentation. I would like to ask the following question. Do students need to be on the same platform in order to watch my lesson ? Is it free to share on MS Teams?
01:00:19 Marie Allirot: yes download them and upload in Genially
01:00:28 Cecilia Smith: I’ll try that out. Thanks!
01:02:27 Adeline Moston: That would be fab for departmental praise postcards!
01:02:34 Helen: https://www.canva.com/brand/join?token=lCIVWb5cylyOASQlDTIgJA&brandingVariant=edu&referrer=team-invite
01:02:49 Esmeralda Salgado: That’s what I do, Adeline
01:02:50 Helen: https://www.canva.com/brand/join?token=lCIVWb5cylyOASQlDTIgJA&brandingVariant=edu&referrer=team-invite
01:06:02 Helen McFarlane: @Helen – I’m receiving the message “Contact administrator” when I click on TiLT Class and Billing and Teams!
01:06:15 helen.farmer: not working for me
01:06:20 Helen McFarlane: Is this a restriction at my end?
01:07:28 Jo Barber: We can see everyone’s emails in the people section….
01:07:28 Helen: Has it worked for others?
01:07:43 Florence Barats: Yes I am in
01:07:45 Jerome Nogues: @Helen I believe so…
01:09:01 helen.farmer: ok now
01:09:32 Esmeralda Salgado: Students could collaborate on a poster for example
01:10:27 Jesus Santos: @Esmeralda Good idea
01:12:39 Esmeralda Salgado: Thanks
01:12:39 Marie Allirot: Q – Do they need an account with Canva or they just work from that link?
01:12:57 Esmeralda Salgado: I think they need an account
01:13:02 Jimena Licitra: I think it is in all your designs
01:13:19 Jo Barber: How well does canva work on ipads? Has anyone tried it with them…
01:13:35 Adeline Moston: Q can the kids get free accounts like teachers?
01:13:57 Esmeralda Salgado: I was thinking of having different designs for students to work on. Ideally for collaborative work with partner schools.
01:14:32 ALICE Semple: How do you copy it or just change that one?
01:14:33 Greg Baxter: @jo I use it on my school iPad a lot, find it easier to move things about with touch
01:14:35 Esmeralda Salgado: I am on a phone, sorry
01:15:15 Jo Barber: thank you Greg – will have a play on there….
01:15:54 Marie Allirot: do we edit or make a copy?
01:16:16 Esmeralda Salgado: I think Anna wants us to edit
01:16:25 Esmeralda Salgado: To add to it
01:18:18 helen.farmer: What next after putting pic on place?
01:18:57 Jimena Licitra: But if students join a class like us here, they just sign up on their own.
01:19:15 Jimena Licitra: And if they already have google accounts, they can access with their google account.
01:19:24 Esmeralda Salgado: Yes, Jimena
01:19:40 Florence Barats: Sorry I keep adding to other people’s slides! I am too slow!
01:19:41 Jimena Licitra: No, my kids are 11 and they use canva
01:19:49 J Young: It said 13 + in a previous screen
01:20:17 Jimena Licitra: Yes, it can
01:20:23 Jo Barber: if you click on people in the tea
01:20:25 Jo Barber: m
01:20:32 Jimena Licitra: If you click on people you see everybody there
01:20:36 Jimena Licitra: And students see the too
01:20:44 Jo Barber: sorry!
01:20:47 Esmeralda Salgado: Good to use school emails, then
01:22:06 Esmeralda Salgado: Great potential for collaborative work! In writing and adding videos etc

01:38:14 ALICE Semple: The music goes so well with your slide

01:40:17 Margaret Robson: Do you have to have a YouTube account to download it?
