Pinterest to get teaching ideas
However, the internet has truely changed how I can react. There is help all over the place, though I still call my mother quite often. While most of my friends plan their upcoming weddings (real or imaginary) on pinterest I tend to find the some great teaching ideas and graphics on pinterest...and what an easy way to organize them!
For example I have a bunch of pictures/comics related to punctuation: http://pinterest.com/carisita/punctuation/ some of them I have found and some of them I have raided of other people's pinterest boards.
So I can divide things up by category: Grammar, Basic things related to being an English Teacher
I also have board for each of the classes I teach so later I don't need to remember what that article I used last year was, or where I found that great comic that one time.
Topics I teach in my TOEFL class, or my Advanced I class.
Anytime someone likes or Re-Pins one of my suggestions I get told. That is helpful since most people who like things that I like are probably collecting things that I can also use in my classes!
Do you use pinterest? Should I be raiding your board? Please let me know if there's anything about Pinterest you that I am missing!
