    SMORE: Create Engaging Newsletters For Your District Today!

    In this episode of EdTech in the Classroom, we welcome Rachel and Shlomi from Smore on the program to discuss how educators and school districts are using Smore’s robust platform to communicate with students, their communities, and each other. Check out EdTech in the Classroom today for other great podcasts featuring your favorite EdTech companies.
    In this episode, we discuss:

    Creating a newsletter should be easy and fun, and deliver professional results
    Using Smore to update parents, staff (internal newsletter) and the greater community
    Learn how your audience engages with your newsletter through live analytics so that you can build smarter newsletters that you know your audience will love

    Analytics will show who opened your newsletter, which links were clicked the most, how much time was spent on the newsletter, etc.


    Using Smore for your entire school

    Streamline school communications and maintain the school's brand with all educators using Smore
    Control, track, analyze

    The School or District License's Admin can actually maintain some control of the content going out to ensure that teachers and staff using Smore stay on brand. They can do this by creating beautiful templates that are on brand to send out to other educators on the License so those educators can use the pre-made templates and drop in their original content for their desired audiences.
    Admin (or admins) of the license have access to a Management Dashboard to view everyone who is active on the license and take a look at what is being sent out! We even have some schools who use the dashboard to create fun games and incentives for teachers/staff to communicate more.
    Smore Academy built in on-boarding. The built-in on-boarding ensures that all teachers/staff on the license get the proper training they need to be successful Smore users.





    The future of Smore

    Even better analytics
