You are a teacher and not on Pinterest?
You don’t know what you are missing.
I talk from experience. Until a few weeks ago that was me, I was also not on Pinterest. I knew about it of course. When my friends were planning their weddings, everything got “pinned”. Now that they are the proud mommies of toddlers, they spend inordinate amounts of time on Pinterest supposedly looking for ways to stimulate their offspring but more likely looking for anything that will keep their precious toddler from driving them insane.
Pinterest is your personal library of innovative ideas
You might be thinking, just last week somebody told you that Twitter is the place to be, and the week before Facebook was a must for teachers. The truth is, I use all of these because each of them brings something unique to the table and my classroom.
Twitter is still my go-to source to get new ideas. If you follow a few good teachers that share their best ideas and retweet the best ideas that are available (hint, hint, @butterfly_class is on of those you should follow) you will get new ideas without even trying. But there is no good way to save those ideas – you can heart them, but I don’t know about you, I never go back and look through all the tweets I have liked and to find an old tweet is almost impossible.

But it gets even better – You can Collaborate on Pinterest
- Teaching Maths – for high school teachers
- Primary Maths – for primary school maths teachers
- Technology in the classroom – where teachers can share ideas they found of successful integration of technology.
What makes Pinterest so easy to use?
Warning – This is addictive
