The Complete Guide To Use Better Pinterest | ProBlogger

The Complete Guide To Use Better Pinterest | ProBlogger | Educational technology | Scoop.it

Excerpted from this long and useful article by ProBlogger about Pinterest:
"I believe that blogs in any niche, not just DIY crafty blogs, are missing out on huge amounts of traffic and exposure if they are ignoring Pinterest. If you want to see your blog grow in leaps and bounds in 2013, you’ve got to pay attention to Pinterest.

I want to make sure that you fully understand the power of Pinterest, I’m going to start with the very basics before digging into the good stuff that will get you the blog success you’re looking for.
At least read through the basics and info about using Pinterest accounts so that you have a better understanding of what’s going on and how to apply that to your blog.

Here’s what I’m going to cover:
- What is Pinterest?
- Why care about Pinterest?
- Basics of using Pinterest.
- Strategies for using your Pinterest account.
- Get your pins maximum exposure.
- Get more traffic to your blog using Pinterest.
- Pinterest tools for bloggers."

Each section is analyzed with many details. Read full interesting article here:

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps | Educational technology | Scoop.it

"This may be news to you (it was to us), but Apple has a guide for teaching with apps. Called “Using iOS Apps for Teaching & Learning,” it’s 8 pages long and really, honestly isn’t as self-embracing and superificial as you’d expect. Of course, it’s only 8 pages and acts more as an overview than the book, PD, and years of experience it actually requires to get it just right."
