How I Use It
As a media specialist, I create flyers to share information with my staff. I include the latest books available, technology spotlights, and events taking place. I then link it to the library webpage. With a reminder available via email, teachers can easily access the flyer when convenient for them. Teachers could also use this to have students showcase their learning of specific topics, and I plan to offer it as a choice when students visit the learning lab.
My Take
I like Smore flyers as they are attractive and professional looking while also easy to create. They are user-friendly and allow the ability to upload pictures, video and audio as well as embed links. The basic subscription is free, but to get custom backgrounds and unlimited use, it is $59/year for educators. If used regularly, the price is fair, but for those without district funds, it is an expense.
