3 Ways to Make the Most of Pinterest if You’re Teaching This Year – Easy EdTech Podcast 135

In this episode, I’ll take you through three ways teachers can make the most of Pinterest this school year.  You’ll also hear how this robust platform full of diverse resources for educators can totally transform your classroom.

Make the Most of Pinterest

Looking for classroom ideas and inspiration? Pinterest is so much more than a spot for party planning inspiration. It is a robust platform full of user-submitted content that can totally transform your classroom. From lesson plans to ideas for student projects, Pinterest is a game-changer.

For many educators, using Pinterest as a teaching resource is not a new idea. The platform is full of teachers who post their favorite anchor charts and kid-friendly apps, or simply go to Pinterest to look for ideas — without ever posting or sharing a “pin” themselves. Let’s look at three reasons you shouldn’t ignore Pinterest if you’re teaching this year, or why you should revisit Pinterest if it’s been awhile.
