Smore Flyers

Several people have asked what online program I use to create these TechKNOW Tips flyers. The name of the program is "Smore," and it's absolutely FREE! Students with an NEISD e-mail account (high school) can create their own Smore account. Elementary and middle school students can use an account that their teacher creates for the class. Design your FREE flyer today at!
