How Does It Work?
Before you start “pinning away”, look at the guidelines below to ensure that you meet all the requirements to earn the 3 hours of Required PD Credit.
Review this rubric: https://goo.gl/aDb9Ii.
Select one instructional strategy or concept that aligns with a personal classroom, campus, or district goal.
Create a board using the instructional strategy or focus as the title.
Be selective: Compile a board of 10-15 VALUABLE PINS related to your strategy or concept. *see below for more information
All pins must link to a blog, a viable resource, or article that pertains to the topic that you chose.
Before you pin, change the caption to reflect a summary of what you learned from the pin.
Try it out! Apply what you learned in your classroom.
You must include a link to an artifact from your classroom showing evidence of learning to receive credit. Artifacts may include: student work or a student created product, lesson video, teacher created product, etc.
Once you have pinned 10-15 GREAT ideas related to your instructional strategy/focus, and have tried it out in your classroom, complete this form (also linked below).
