Recently EdGeeks shared about using Pinterest to collect and share ideas about education and the classroom. I wanted to update my readers by sharing the fact that I have been loving Pinterest. I have set up boards in the following areas:
Math Manipulatives, Great Classroom Literature, Inspiration for Parents and Teachers, Library Design, Charts and Posters for the Classroom, Classroom Feng Shui, Classroom Crafts, A Classroom For All (Accessibility), and Classroom Furniture.
If you join Pinterest, make sure to follow my boards as I will be updating them each week with the most inspiring educational finds I can. Need an invite? Send EdGeeks an email.
I find teaching inspiration all the time and have no place to curate it. This simple tool allows me to keep my inspiration for education all in one place. It is like the container store in a way, I get to keep organizing and re-organizing throughout my different boards. Pinterest has also connected me to a ton of amazing teachers and parents out there who have exciting ideas about children, education and learning.
If you are a teacher or parent already using Pinterest for education, or interested in learning about how to use it…definitely check out this site BestCollegesOnline. I have been using their site to learn about exciting ways to use Pinterest for education. They recently had two articles that I highly recommend:
Another great resource is the Pearson School Systems Blog Article Four Ways to Use Pinterest in Education. I like how they promote the idea of having students use Pinterest to curate their ideas for projects, activities, etc. They offer a simple tutorial on how to use Pinterest as well.
