Technology for Teachers
Note: You can select other objects such as bubbles and eyeballs. Try it just for fun. :)
If you're not yet on the Pinterest bandwagon, I would jokingly say to you "RUN! DON'T DO IT!" It can be a serious time waster, or if you're like me, you might get really overwhelmed with all the projects you just HAVE to complete this weekend.
But, I will also say that I've found some seriously amazing teaching ideas on Pinterest. I have many boards that I've created solely for teaching. If you sign up for a free account, you can search any topic you're interested in: Classroom Management, macaroni noodle crafts... you name it, and somebody has probably pinned it.
When I was younger, I would tear out articles I found interesting and I pinned them to a bulletin board. I had sections on my bulletin board for arts and crafts, interior design, clothing, fitness, beauty tips, etc... not much has changed, except now I do it digitally. :)
Your first step is to sign up. You can create boards first, or you can search your interests first. Here are some steps to getting started with Pinterest:
Scheduling Meetings using Outlook
The first tutorial explains how to create a meeting request. What I found most helpful was how to send a meeting request to people without a School District e-mail address.
What will you look like when you’re old? And what about your friends? AgingBooth is an easy to use and amazing face aging machine on your Android or Apple device. AgingBooth is a funny (or scary!) way to instantly age face photos.
I just searched "Aging Booth in the Classroom" on Pinterest, and found some fun ideas! One teacher uses it on the 100th day of school and has her students write about life at 100 years old.
What ideas do you have for using this fun tool to teach standards in a new, engaging way?
