First of all, before I get going, I want to apologize to my readers for not posting something lately. I have been so busy in the library and teaching that I had to readjust my priorities. I am hoping after state reports are done and my assistant and I can get back into our daily grove, things will be back to normal and I have more time to write.
Smore is a little like glogster. I can't monitor a whole class with smore, but, I can ask them for the link and see the outcome. I like how versatile and easy to use it is. I am going to try it with my French class.
You start off selecting a template for whatever it is you are doing. It has a lot of options. After you pick a template, you just plug information into it. You can input a lot of different things: images, text, titles, video, etc. It makes a really nice presentation. I created one for our student body about using the card catalog. I did screen captures, uploaded them to smore and voila, I ended up with a fantastic presentation in little or no time at all. I copied my text from a doc file that had been formatted and the program let the format for the text carry over. Gotta like that.
If you need a quick presentation for a class, need a project idea, look into this. I can see it being used by several content areas.
