S’more.com is one of the easiest ways to create a simple but beautiful webpage. It was originally designed to create online “flyers” that can be shared on social media like Facebook and Twitter. However, it is also a great tool for education anytime you want the students to integrate text, images, video, maps and audio. Here are some product ideas for teaching and learning:
- Create a made-up but relevant event for a famous person or landmark
- Design a poster for anything—National Park, a novel you’re class is reading, the recipes for this week’s menu, how to balance chemical equations, the ultimate workout.
- C’est quoi votre vacance de rêve?
- Produce an actual flyer for your pretend company.
