Transcript of Pinterest

Pinterest is a free web and mobile application that offers a visual discovery, collection, sharing, and storage tool. Users create and share visual bookmarks (pins) and collect them in sub-groups (boards). Pins are created through a user selecting an item, page, website, etc. and bookmarking it to an existing or newly created board. Pinner's also have the option to "like" other pins as well.
Teachers and students are able to collaborate with one another and see each other's ideas.

Lesson Plan Ideas


is Meaningful:
Teachers can encourage their students to use the Pinterest app to connect with others around the world, and to find out information that they otherwise would not have known. The Connectivist learning theory ties into this because technology is constantly changing, and via Pinterest, teachers can learn new things, keep up with the newest technology by interacting and sharing their ideas with other educators on Pinterest boards.

Pinterest is best suited for teachers who are extremely active and involved in their teaching. If one searches for Social Constructivist learning ideas on Pinterest, teachers can find activities for their students that will keep them actively engaged and motivated to excel in whatever subject they are searching for. To help keep the students interested in what's being taught, the teacher could have a fun debate that all students will participate in, using their previous knowledge to discuss the topic and by gaining new information from other students.
"Pinterest is a place to discover all your projects and interests, hand-picked by people like you".
On Pinterest you can search for anything and "pin" it to a board to use/view at a later date. For example, as a teacher, you could search for art projects for your students to try, creative writing prompts, or you could simply view lesson plans from other teachers all over the world. When you've found something you like, you can either "pin" it to one of your boards, or "like" it. You can search "math ideas" for fun ways to teach that subject and Pinterest will display all of the pins other users have saved in those categories. You can browse through hundreds of pins to find the one you're most interested in and then "pin" it to your 'Lesson Plans' or 'Craft' board!

Pinterest is compatible with Facebook, Twitter, and many other social media sites which make it easier to find friends in the application.

You can also email pins to other teachers to share something you've pinned, or to let others view what you've added to Pinterest yourself!
How Teachers are using
in the Classroom:
How Pinterest Works:

Below shows the many different boards a user can have with personal titles. Inside of each board are Pins the user saved in the collection. These pins could be a how-to, a learning tool, a craft, or just pictures!
Educators are using Pinterest in their classrooms for numerous things. Teachers can search on Pinterest for lesson plan ideas or different teaching methods to try. Teachers can also communicate with other teachers by sharing what they are doing in their classroom. Collaborative boards on Pinterest are becoming increasingly popular among teachers. For example, a teacher could take pictures of her class doing a fun/educational science project and then share it on Pinterest for other teachers to view and use.

How to Pin
When searching through the billions of pins on Pinterest, as a teacher, you are bound to find many pins you love and would be excited about trying these new discoveries in your classroom. For example, if you were searching for new craft ideas, and found something you liked, you click on the upper right hand corner of the picture you want to save, and click "pin it", you then select which board you want to save it to, in this case it would be "classroom ideas", then you're done! The pin will forever be on your board, (unless you delete it that is) and will instantly show up for you.
What is Pinterest?
How does Pinterest work?
Pinterest is compatible with almost any web page on the internet, as long as you have the Pinterest App on your phone, iPad, or PC, you can select almost anything and pin it to one of your boards for others to view/use!
The only thing that rises an issue when using Pinterest are the spam websites you sometimes can stumble upon, for example if you wanted to download a "free lesson plan template" you liked, and the link just brings you to a web page where you have to buy it. Or the link goes nowhere, that's a bummer!

links that lead to nowhere
