Full course description
Bulletin boards. Creativity. Inspirational quotes. And communicating. Seriously: was Pinterest invented specifically with teachers in mind?!
Considering how many teachers use and love this social media channel, it just might have been.
In case you haven't yet entered this crafty zone of online love and ideas, or if you've only dabbled, catch up on the deets with this course.
You'll learn the fundamentals of pinning, following, searching, and curating content on Pinterest. You'll learn to use Pinterest as a classroom community builder, showcase for student work, and parent communication channel. From creative student projects to collaboration to college applications, you'll learn the possibilities of using Pinterest with your students.
You'll also find ways to make use of Pinterest as a resource for your own professional development.
If you're already an avid pinner, skip the how-to part of the course and focus on the rest. It doesn't matter where you develop your competence, as long as you can demonstrate it in your AOK project, you can earn your micro-badge.
And as usual, you'll find an AOK option that results in material you can use with your students immediately.
The micro-badge you have when you're finished shows you can not only pin with the best of them, you can also use Pinterest as a tool to increase student achievement and accelerate your own professional growth.
