Setting Up Pinterest for Your School

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 8.49.58 AMA few weeks ago the literacy consultants from our ISD came in to chat at a staff meeting about “summer learning loss.”

While I was familiar with the concept, this video they showed really put things into perspective. Yikes! We will now be implementing story time on our pontoon boat rides (kidding…kind of).

The end of the school year is fast approaching. And what better time to start thinking about strategies to stop the “learning slide” of summer?

Last week I chatted up Pinterest. This week I’ll show you just how you can set up Pinterest and create your first board.

Now if you’re wondering why Pinterest compared to other Social Media sites, check out these stats from this post at Salty Waffle (a social media tutorial site).

30% of Pinterest users are ages 25-34, while 25% are ages 35-44. These two categories are encompassing your school-aged children’s parents. And to be frank, if a local school district started to create Pinterest boards with great pins to educational sites, it might impact my decision on where my two young girls go to school.

Here’s a video where I walk you through this process! The best part? I give you a super-easy tip to creating the boards without putting in tons of hours of work!

If you’re still not sure how or why you could use it, refer to last week’s post where I listed a few suggestions! Or if you already use Pinterest as a school district, please share it with us on our Facebook or Twitter pages!
