How to use Pinterest – A guide for Teachers

Pinterest is a bookmarking site that allows users to curate their own idea banks by “pinning” websites found on the internet to virtual boards. Each pin uses a main image to act as a visual reminder of the resource, and contains a link back to the original site.

You can have as many boards as you like, each on a different theme. So you could set up a board for Science, one for Literacy, one for Maths etc. It’s a great way for teachers to set up banks of bookmarks to different websites that they can share with students and colleagues.

If you’ve never used Pinterest, but would like to try it out, then I’ve put together a How to Guide that explains how to get started with Pinterest. You can download it here.
