It’s getting that time of year when lots of teachers give-out awards and certificates, and thought that another “The Best…” list would be helpful.
Whenever I give out these kinds of awards to my students, in a nod to what Alfie Kohn says about rewards in his book “Punished By Rewards” (though I’m not a total believer in his perspective), I don’t tell them in advance what they awards are for and make sure that everybody gets one. I also think strategically about which students might like getting serious certificates, and which ones would better appreciate funny ones.
Here are my picks for The Best Ways To Make Awards & Certificates Online:
Print a batch of certificates in Canva Pro/Edu:
1️⃣ Use a certificate template or design your own.
2️⃣ Go to the Bulk Create app and input or upload names.
3️⃣ Connect the data to a text box.
4️⃣ Click Generate to make a certificate for each person.
5️⃣ Download as PDF.
