  • student assignments that involve marketing and advertising principles, self-expression, and targeting writing to a specific audience.

Student Age for Smore

Students 13 and older can use Smore and sign up for an account.

If you would like students 13 and younger to use Smore, they will need to use your teacher account. Be sure that younger students only use their first names and do not make their Smore public (they need to chose the option "Private" only those who have the link can view)

Beyond the Technology Tool

Technology will never replace great teachers, but technology in the hands of a great teacher can be transformational. - George Couros
