A Digital Story Map
I tried my hand at a website called Smore. It is a website used to design online flyers. I thought it would be a great way for students to share their thinking and learning. I used it to make a story map of a first grade favorite, The Escape of Marvin the Ape. I would love to see how students could use this to present something they have learned in a content area, share a book response or to persuade. Smore works on a desktop computer or a tablet. It is web-based. The downfall is that free users only get 5 flyers with no renewal. Educators can get an account for $59 a year. This includes unlimited flyers.
