Intriguing Networks, Great to meet you here! You are so right, whether an individual or a business curates, it's the story that is woven throughout your topic or niche that gives readers a chance to connect with you at different entry points along the way. I agree with you, Scoopit is a very vibrant and generous community. Look forward to sharing more with you in the future!

Using Pinterest and Instagram as a Presentation Tool

Using Pinterest and Instagram as a Presentation Tool | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Students are currently studying World War II in my classroom.  One of the elements we look at is how the World War II Generation, the Greatest Generation, was able to endure and succeed in this era.  Students look at one particular character from Tom Brokaw’s book, The Greatest Generation.  They are required to tell their character’s story from the war era using a tech tool in their presentation.

A few students have begun thinking outside of the box in regards to presentation tools. Students have been using Instagram and Pinterest as their tech tool...

How To Share Your Story On Pinterest | Business 2 Community

How To Share Your Story On Pinterest | Business 2 Community | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"If Pinterest’s succes has taught us anything, it’s that images have value. Pinterest allows us to dream about the places we want to go, the clothes we want to buy and gives us ideas to make cool memories with our kids.

 

If we’re no longer questioning Pinterest’s strong force in the social world then the next question to ask is: How did these Pinterest success stories find a way to take their collection of boards to grow their business and add to their bottom line?  They discovered that Pinterest was an opportunity to share their company’s story.


They turned their boards into the characters of their company’s narrative. Their boards became individual destinations giving users an image-filled story about the person behind the business. And these online insights gave their followers (and potential customers) a reason to connect with them."

 

Read the full article to find out more about these ideas, and examples, on how you can share your company’s story on Pinterest:

I adore Pinterest!  You can get a pretty good idea about who I am and what I'm passionate about in less than a minute by just scanning the images of all my boards.  Of course the flip side is you might also discover I'm a bit of a hoarder based on how many boards and pins I have.


Individuals and businesses can find some great tips in this article. Never underestimate the power of a visual.

ADULT PLAY THERAPY

ADULT PLAY THERAPY | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Toys, and play in general, are important when it comes to growing up and learning about the world around us. The young use toys and play to discover their identity, help their bodies grow strong, learn cause and effect, explore relationships, and practice skills they will need as adults. Adults use toys and play to form and strengthen social bonds, teach, remember and reinforce lessons from their youth, discover their identity, exercise their minds and bodies, explore relationships.

Five Tips for Using Pinterest in Education | Digital Learning Environments

Five Tips for Using Pinterest in Education | Digital Learning Environments | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Teachers are notorious for being resourceful; always on the lookout for the latest technology, the best lesson plans and creative ways to engage students. Pinterest, a virtual pinboard for creative ideas and information, is the ideal online resource for this type of teacher. However, if you are not careful, your Pinterest pins and board can quickly become as overwhelming as the disorganized filing cabinets, scraps of papers and internet bookmarks full of ideas and resources you have already amassed. If used effectively, Pinterest has the potential to truly improve your teaching.
