Pinterest for primary school teachers
From lesson and resource ideas to behaviour management techniques, this Guardian article explores how Pinterest offers a wide range of support and inspiration for teachers with young students.
Pinterest is a social network that allows users to curate their own inspiration banks by "pinning" images they find on the internet to virtual boards. These pinned pictures (known as "pins") then link back to the sites where they were found – they're pictorial bookmarks, but with the added twist that they can be searched for, commented on and re-pinned by other Pinterest users.
This article offers these five top tips for using Pinterest to inspire primary school teaching:
- Lesson and resource ideas
- Organisation tips and classroom displays
- Behaviour management tools
- Inspiring children in class
- Networking with other teachers
