My family & I have been using Smilebox as a way to share photos with family & friends for about 2yrs now.

I saw today they have a teachers program & filled out the information. When it asked for school name & School District I just wrote homeschool. For the school website I included a website I have about our homeschool which hasn't been updated in at leas 3yrs. lol I wasn't sure if they would accept it or not.

I got an email just moments later telling me I was accepted. They gave me a full year of Smilebox which costs $39.99.

Here is info on the program and how you can use it for school -
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The Smilebox Teacher?s Toolbox program is a teacher?s digital companion for creative classroom fun.  Teacher?s Toolbox gives teachers at all grade levels an easy and creative way to safely share photos, videos and classroom updates to your students and parents.  Smilebox is perfect for:

    *   parent newsletters and updates
    *   overviews of teaching units for at-home learning and modeling
    *   award and merit certificates
    *   performance and field trip scrapbooks
    *   classroom activity slideshows
    *   end-of-year photo albums and yearbooks
    *   much, much more

Your classroom creations can be emailed, posted to a school blog or website, burned to DVD or photo frame, or printed for bulletin boards or backpacks. Parents will experience these learning moments as if they were sitting right alongside their child in class. Your kids will love to see themselves and friends featured in creative multimedia designs set to the music of your choice. You?ll be amazed at how easy Smilebox is to use and how quickly you can share classroom memories. We?re confident you?ll give Smilebox an A+ in classroom communication.

As a member of the Smilebox Teacher?s Toolbox program, you will receive a FREE annual subscription to our premium Club Smilebox service (a US$39.99 value). Our premium service gives you unlimited access to more than 900 Smilebox designs. You can also choose from hundreds of music options or add your own music, email and blog your creations full screen without ads, burn a DVD, and print any page at school, home or at a local retail store.  We add new designs each week to keep you supplied with fresh ideas for every holiday, season and special event.  You will also receive special offers and a newsletter with great ideas on how to use Smilebox in your classroom.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

My kids have enjoyed it using too. My 14yr old likes to take photos and she shares them with her friends.

The creations can be printed out too and look great on plain or photo paper. I plan to use it for our notebooking this year.

Hope some of you find this helpful & enjoy.

I love this!  I've been using it to do the newsletters I send to her grandparents.  It's so much more fun that just text.
