Pinterest as a bookmarking tool

 

Pinterest is actually a virtual noticeboard. You add small sticky notes with images to your canvas. You can have many boards and you can pin articles, blog posts, and ideas according to your interests

When I first heard about pinterest, I thought ‘enough, I’m already lost among so many sites.’ I managed to avoid myself until last month and now I thoroughly enjoy pinning.

I love pinterest for many reasons. First of all, it is very colourful. Sometimes, you get the idea without even reading the post so it is wonderful for busy teachers. One picture will lead to many ideas.

It is also great because you can categorize your boards and it will make the work easier for the user.

You also see what people you follow have pinned. You can repin their pins and that way you can reach many ideas.

After spending sometime on pinterest, I decided to have different boards and here you can see what I have pinned under ‘Reading, Writing Resources’. Some are designed for very young learners but you can easily adapt them to the high school. I think when we read our graded readers, novels and short stories next year, these pins will help me a lot.

  4. Your pinboard looks very nice Eva!
    I had the same thoughts/ resistance about using Pinterest and I still haven’t found the difference between it and Scoopit which I am using now. There must be something in Pinterest that has made it so popular. I wish someone told me what it is.
