WELCOME TO Pinterest and Polyvore in the Classroom Let's begin with a get to know you! Slide 2 FOOD FOR THOUGHT You'll find boredom where these is the absence of a good idea. ~Earl Nightingale Slide 3 TEACHERS MAKE THE WORST STUDENTS. If you cant be nice, be quiet. PARTICIPATE! Take breaks as needed. Feedback is appreciated! Slide 4 Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Think of it as an online bulletin board. It is a way to digitally store ideas, virtually collaborate, and create mood boards. You can create private boards (3) You can create public boards and invite other pinners to pin as well! It has many in class applications and my students LOVE to use it. SO WHATS PINTEREST? Slide 5 SO, WHATS POLYVORE? Polyvore is a virtual closet. It is a little more difficult to use AT FIRST than Pinterest. It only works with Google Chrome at my school. Can be used in conjunction with Pinterest. Slide 6 WHATS IN IT FOR ME? Your students will be... more engaged, interested, having fun, showing and telling, challenged, creative, quicker, researching (without plagiarism), applying, sharing, collaborating, and a whole lot more. It's also less messy than making collages with fashion magazines and it is constantly updating. Best of all, it's easy to grade because it is VISUAL. Bewaregrading is subjective...
