How do you get your head around social media and how can it fit around your work or business needs? Is it important to spend a few minutes everyday on Facebook or Pinterest. Here are some inside tips that I found interesting that may help you through the maze of questions you may have on this topic.

I just wish this deck were prettier - but I'm deeply (graphically) shallow that way! LOL

I know what you does get the message across though.

Embed your Pinterest Board onto your library website or catalog home screen. It is sure to grab some attention.

Wellicht handig om de Pinterest-pagina van je school/klas te embedden in je klassenblog/schoolwebsite...

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | Skolbiblioteket och lärande |
All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?


As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.


Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"

I was introduced to Pinterest by one of my students about six months before the boom that made Pinterest a household word.

I wish I'd seized the opportunity and jumped right in. However, at first I just didn't get it.  Now in hindsight I realize that Pinterest is a curation platform-- one that appeals to millions.  Needless to say I'm now curating a dozen different interests!

I'd like to see actual data. The Infographic is one year old :)
Peg Corwin's curator insight, February 29, 2016 11:26 AM

Do you have a Food-related business?  Was interested to see that 57% of Pinners interact with food-related pins.  It's their top category.

Here's an interesting way to expand your Personal Learning Network.


When there is so much to read about reading, why not take advantage of sites where others interested in various aspects of reading are already previewing, filtering, and recommending reading about reading materials?


I often wondered whether I was alone when I was still in the classroom and found it so difficult to keep up with what I perceived as a professional obligation to be reading about reading. 24/7 just never seemed enough time for Passion-based lesson planning, assessing student progress AUTHENTICALLY, constantly playing tug-of-war between wanting to do more for my own kids and wanting to do more for my students, and dealing with the perpetual exhaustion that is the biproduct of caring. 


I more often than not found myself lucky if I could get to one or two Language Arts conferences a year to at least get a megadose of new ideas. And, getting to a second one was extremely rare. 


And, I can't help but wonder if the passionate educators' "too-little-time-to-do-everything- that- is-too-important-to not-do" dilemma holds the seeds of a potential creeping stagnation over the course of a teaching career. 


These 15 Fabulous Booking Pinterest Boards are essentially pre-filtered sources for Quick Reads about Reading. Explore. 


There are many similar sources on where I keep my collection of scooped articles and commentaries about reading. Using the Search box quickly locates others who are  prefiltering interesting internet sites about reading and literature, like my Google Lit Trips: Reading About Reading topic.


A quick tip about using the search function is that after you enter a search term, you will be shown a short list of relevant collections. Those with stars to the right of the topics found have been updated recently. 


If you can find just enough time to explore the 15 Faboulous Bookish Pinterest Boards and spend a bit of time exploring collections, you'll surely find a few worthy of bookmarking. 


Find a few that are really "bang-for-the-buck-treasures" and check them out over your granola and first cup of coffee.


Then just consider them vitamin pills and see if you can stop by one or two of your favorites on a regular basis for a quick boost.
