SMORE FLYERS

DIGITAL COMMUNICATION OF EVENTS
SMORE was originally created as a digital flyer tool for events. Of course teachers found SMORE and it took on an entirely different light.

SMORE came out with EDU pricing and options.

However, the FREE version is just fine.

At any rate, you'll never find a SMORE poster lying on the ground.

BUILDING BLOCKS OF A SMORE

The best SMORES are planned!

Start with a template or a blank slate and add blocks to build your learning experience.

Certain blocks are limited to certain types of content.
For example...
Audio block = Soundcloud
Video block = Youtube, Vimeo & Viddler
Form block = Wufoo, which limits entries to 100/month

Linking may your best option for more flexibility

COLLABORATION
Students can extend a lesson beyond the classroom walls and add content as they feel at home or school!

Need kids to watch a video? Create a padlet and embed your video! Give kids the avenue to post questions that they may answer themselves!

FINAL THOUGHTS...

Whether you use SMORE, Thinglink or Padlet, use the tool that fits the content.

As much as possible, put creation in the hands of kids. Doing so helps to develop their critical thinking and communication skills!
