Canva presentation timer hack - how to add a timer to your Canva presentation.


Today, I would like to acknowledge the Yuggera people as the Traditional Owners of the beautiful land I am standing on today. From the mountains to the river, I open my heart and my eyes as I walk this land, listening, learning and caring for Country. I want to extend this respect to Elders; past, present and emerging and to all First Nations peoples reading this post today. We are all remembered here.


Just so you know, this post does contain sponsored content through the use of affiliate links, my proud partnerships and my own products and resources and I want to thank each of you for continuing to use my affiliate links to support the work I do. As you know, each blog post is based on my own experiences, opinions, and what I have been taught, and does not represent all First Nations peoples or Communities. Please remember that, connecting with your local First Nations Community is always the most respectful way for you to embed First Nations content specific to your area.

How often do you use a timer in your classroom?

Well if you are anything like me, I use them all of the time! But particularly during literacy / reading groups (Let me know if this is you in the comments).

But did you know that you can add a timer into any Canva presentation by clicking just one button?

Yes, you heard that right! ONE BUTTON!!!

So, today I am sharing with you a short and sweet video on how you can use this oh so simple timer in your next presentation.

If you are a teacher maybe you have used it during reading or literacy groups.

Or maybe you have used it during a workshop you have run?

Let me know in the comments how you have used the Canva timer in your presentations.
