Why Teachers Should Use Pinterest

Increasingly, learning is happening online, so it’s no surprise that bulletin boards have also moved online. Enter Pinterest. Teachers can now use Pinterest to stay organised, plan lessons, find resources, plan projects and find interesting activities that other teachers across the world are using – talk about collaborative planning. If you haven't already joined Pinterest then you really should!
