PINTERESTing Ideas For Your Classroom
Pinterest is the answer!
a virtual bulletin board where you can store things that interest you
a place for you to organize and share ideas

How does it work?
1. Create Boards
2. Add a "Pin-It" button to your browser
3. Add Pins or "Repin"
4. Follow Other Users
5. Gain Followers
You can access your ideas from virtually anywhere and at anytime.
People want to save or "bookmark" interesting and helpful items that they find on the internet.
However, bookmarking can become cluttered if done excessively.
Pinterest uses pin boards to help you organize your ideas.
It allows you to save large amounts of websites or pages without cluttering your computer.
By adding a "PIN IT" button to your browser, you have the capability of pinning while browsing the web.
Or you can repin other users pins to your boards.
Pins should ALWAYS link back to the original source.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the internet. The use of pinboards ranges from wedding planning to organizing favorite recipes.

Why not use it for your classroom?

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other teachers. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new ideas from other educators.
Do you ever feel like this...
What is it?
You will be prompted to insert a "
Pin It
" button on your browser's toolbar.
Pinterest will start you off with suggested people to follow based on topics of your choosing.
How do I get started
Creating a Pinboard
Pinboards are basically categories for organizing your pins.
The number of pinboards you may have is endless.
Category suggestions:

, science,
, winter, spring, iPad, etc.
Pinterest is picture driven. If there is no picture, there cannot be a pin.
Pinterest has the capability of sharing across other social media sites like

Pinterest allows you to create
Secret Boards
that are not shared or searchable by anyone
Here’s how secret boards work:

•You can create up to 3 secret boards. If you already have 3 secret boards but want to make a new one, you’ll need to delete one or make one of your current secret boards visible to everyone. If you’re invited to contribute to someone else’s secret board, it won’t count against your 3-board limit.
•When you add a pin to a secret board, it won’t show up anywhere else on Pinterest—not in the category sections, Popular, Everything, anyone’s search results, your followers’ home feed, your own home feed, or even pins or activity pages on your profile.
•Your secret boards and pins are at the bottom of your profile. Just scroll down to see them.
Please note: You can’t change a board back to secret after you have made it visible to everyone—and you can’t make existing boards secret.

Creating your own pin allows you to save websites to your personal boards for future reference. Pinterest isn't just about searching amongst what has already been found but providing and keeping track of your own new finds.
Copy and paste the website name onto the comments section just below a picture of a similar topic. Then you can find it there.

Extra Credit: have your students complete a weekly Pinterest activity OR if they are unable to have a Pinterest account print off and keep a small booklet of ideas for them to have easy access to
Learning Center: begin incorporating Pinterest lessons and ideas into a learning center
Pinboards and Pins: create your own Pinterest board in your classroom and have the students "pin" ideas, resources, images, webpages, etc. that they find interesting or useful (categorize your board to make it even more organized and similar to Pinterest)
Pinterest Parties: ask your students to complete two Pinterest activities or lessons a month - one has to be done with family and the other on their own
Have your students create a Pinterest board of their own to discuss various topics instead of the usual science board or poster board presentations
Create mini Pinterest boards (lap board) to use when researching a topic, great for in the library to gather information, and provide them with a template to use or have them create their own in class.
