Did you know that you can create pins that don’t have links to websites? We all know that we can use Pinterest to preserve great ideas that we find online, but how about using Pinterest to make a “filing cabinet” of the great ideas and projects YOU have had? This would make it easy to come back to your ideas from year to year, as well as to share your ideas with other teachers.
It’s really simple. First, take a picture of the project, bulletin board or activity. (Would also work for videos of lessons.)
Next, go to Pinterest and click on the + sign at the top and then Upload Pin.
Select your photo from where it is saved and click upload. Then, add a description of what you did while it is still fresh in your head. You might also add a list of resources to gather or improvements you’d like to make.
Three simple steps and all of your ideas are there, nice and clear, with no papers to tote around or store! How do you use Pinterest to organize your classroom ideas?
