Lee Hall's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:04 PM

I think Pinterest is great for teachers to collect their ideas, but their are some things posted on Pinterest that are not appropriate for students to see.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 21, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a great example of how to use the Infographic format to educate and share knowledge with others.  It make sense that a teacher would do it.  Fantastic!

Audrey's curator insight, March 8, 2014 5:38 PM

Once you start using these two learning strategies teaching becomes a real pleasure as students will be teaching the topics.  In addition they will be able to give evaluative and analytical commentary.
