Tip of the Week: My Top 10 Social Studies Pinterest Boards

Tip of the Week: My Top 10 Social Studies Pinterest Boards | Tech in the Classroom- Laptops, iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

Yes. I know. There are other social media bookmarking sites out there. There are other bookmarking sites out there that I personally like more. And there may even be other bookmarking sites that are easier to use.

I get that.

 

But I also know that we shouldn’t ignore Pinterest. There are some incredible resources on the Interwebs that I would have never found without my Pinterest account. For saving bookmarks, I use other tools. But for a quick way to browse lots of sites quickly, it’s hard to beat Pinterest.

if you’re not super familiar with Pinterest, the tool is a pinboard-style website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections called pinboards. These pinboards give users a way to organize all of the websites that they find. Because it’s visual, it’s easy to “see” the saved web sites in these collections. You can browse other users pinboards for sites, follow your favorite pinboards,  “re-pin” those sites to your own pinboard, or like the different sites.

 

The handy thing is that you don’t have to have an account to view the pinboards of Pinterest users. Obviously you won’t be able to save the stuff you find but if you don’t want to create a free account, just do a “site search” on Google using the following keywords:

site:pinterest.com “your search term”

In practice, it would look like this:

Nick Urban's curator insight, July 16, 2015 6:11 PM

I never thought I would submit to Pinterest, but I have to say that the content on their is top-notch and easily shared. The ability to find different boards, create special communities, and easily share information is easily done. Pinterest is user friendly and simple to get started with, and FREE! The content can be specifically found on separate boards based on different classrooms, ages, and technology uses. Have fun browsing these great boards!

8 ways teachers can talk less and get kids talking more

8 ways teachers can talk less and get kids talking more | Tech in the Classroom- Laptops, iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
If you do fewer teacher-directed activities, that means the kids will naturally do more talking, doesn’t it?  Not necessarily. I have often found myself talking almost constantly during group work and student-directed projects because I’m trying to push kids’ thinking, provide feedback, and help them stay on task. Even when the learning has been turned over …

Apps to Manage Passwords So They Are Harder to Crack Than ‘Password’ :: NY Times

Apps to Manage Passwords So They Are Harder to Crack Than ‘Password’ :: NY Times | Tech in the Classroom- Laptops, iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

"Year after year, studies show that many people still rely on passwords that are so weak that even a 5-year-old could crack them. According to a study released this week by SplashData, a developer of password management software, consumers continue making the riskiest choices with passwords by consistently using overly simple ones.

"In my shame and embarrassment, I put together a guide of best practices for passwords and tested some tools that would help manage them. Here’s what it boils down to: To have the safest passwords protecting your digital life, each password should be unique and complex. But since memorizing 70 unique and complex passwords is nearly impossible, we also need password manager programs to keep track of them all."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

I am taking the plunge this year and signing up for a password manager. The security situation is soooo bad.
