Pinterest in the Classroom

Pinterest is a great resource for, well, everything. Pinterest is a good place to start if you're looking for inspiration or fresh ideas. Pinterest is also easily adaptable for classroom use, and, chances are, your students already know how to use it.
  1. Student introductions. A great way to have students introduce themselves is through the creation of their own Pinterest board. Ask students to tell the class about themselves through the use of pictures. Have them include in their board their favorite foods, likes, dislikes, favorite places, interests etc.
  2. Student collaboration. If students are collaborating on a project, have student groups create a board where they save information on their topic. The board would be a great place to serve as an information repository.
  3. Distribute assignments. Create a class or subject board to distribute assignments, such as reading and worksheets.
  4. Research. Students create boards as a place to store their research.
  5. Share what’s happening in class. The teacher displays pictures of student work and projects. Include photos of assignments and other goings on in the classroom.
  6. Post assignments. Create a board and use it as an assignment repository. Include worksheets, classroom and homework assignments, as well as instructions for assignments.
  7. Students visual report. Have students create a board in which they create a visual report. Students include pictures on a topic and explain the significance of each picture as it pertains to the topic.
  8. Comment board. Students post their work for other students to comment on.
  9. Assignment repository. Teachers create a board for each unit/chapter in the class. Include all relevant information pertaining to the unit or chapter.
  10. Parent communication. Teachers stay in touch with parents. Create an upcoming tests/assignments/events board
  11. Celebrate students.  Celebrate those who do well with an achievement board. Post exemplary student work and test scores.
  12. Brainstorm.  Create a brainstorming board. Students upload images where all students can review the board for ideas.
  13. Presentation board. Students create a presentation board with images only.
  14. Share resources. Create a board that includes class notes and readings that will help students with class work.
  15. Samples of student work. Create an example board. Sometimes students need examples of past work and projects. If students need examples, point them to the board.
  16. Bellringer prompts. Create a board for bellringer prompts.
