A super bookmarking tool – I use it to collect bookmarks together of videos, links and online resources for units of work – each unit of work has a separate “board” – frequently I share these with students!
There are LOADS of ideas and resources on there already, so it can be as easy as creating your own board, then “re-pinning” other peoples pins from the search bar OR from people you follow.
I use the Pin it to Pinterest tool – this is an add-on to my chrome browser (found here: https://help.pinterest.com/entries/22997343-Add-the-Pin-It-button) – new pins are added without signing into pinterest! – TOO EASY!
I RSS feed pins from relevant boards to my Edmodo groups – my DT class get pins from my “innovations and clever design” board, whilst my timber class get “project ideas” – – – see instructions on EDMODO RSS feeds here – – -> https://blog.edmodo.com/2011/06/01/web-2-0-creating-an-edmodo-rss-feed/
The best bit is that no matter what device you are on, you have access to your bookmarks!!
Yvonne Dixon (a UK teacher) was the FIRST person I started to follow – her boards are FULL of info and a great example of how it works for education: http://pinterest.com/ydixy/
