Smore! Flyers

Hi! Shana here from Enchanted with Technology and I wanted to introduce you to a very simple, quick way to create an awesome flyer; without using Word or Publisher. Check out www.smore.com.
Enchanted with Technology
Smore is a website that allows you to build quick, easy flyers within minutes! It is a great alternative for Word or Publisher. You can design a flyer from a basic template or you may want to choose to create one from scratch and add your own content.
The super easy format gives you the option to change the design, background, colors, and font. You will also see navigation arrows next to each section as you hover to view the different layout options for that section. Below is an example of a personal layout flyer. However, you can drag and drop to rearrange the sections, delete sections, or add as many as you would like to customize it.


Students can have fun creating posters, flyers, or invitations for a topic being covered in class. They can make a personal flyer for a character in a story, a personal flyer to display at open house, or create a snapshot of a story they have read. For example, they could add pictures for the setting, add text for the summary,  bio to discuss the author, or even a video or link to to provide additional information. Smore can also be a great tool to create a classroom newsletter. I like to use it because it can be easily shared through Facebook, Twitter, email, or a direct link. If you get a chance, it's worth checking out.

 *I used the spelling flyer in the post because that is how it is referenced on the website.

  5. Indeed, this is a fairly simple method, but such a template looks too unprofessional, sorry) For a more scientific explanation, or a conference, one must take into account the officially and adhere to more specific templates such as these https://poweredtemplate.com/brochure-templates/flyers/education-training/index.html . Otherwise, this will cause some doubts from the client or listener. My opinion, You have to be serious when making a report or presentation, Just keep it in your mind and no problems.
