The first one is Symbaloo. It is not new to me, but it is new to most within my district. Symbaloo is one of my favorite websites to use. It is a visual bookmarking site. I just love how easy it is to create “Webmixes” with all kinds of tiles that link to specific websites. And to make it even better, it is a social network so the Webmixes can be shared with others and added to individual accounts as well.
The second one is Smore, a website which “creates beautiful flyers instantly.” You can sign up on the Smore homepage for your own free account. Once signed in, Smore gives you options for “Designing an awesome new flyer.” You can change the design, background, colors, and fonts. Smore also lets you add content such as text, titles, embedded links, videos, audio, pictures, an event calendar and invitation, gallery of pictures with text, and a bio. And because it is online and you don’t have have to worry about having your information run off the page, you can add as much as you want.
