So many teachers are starting to use Pinterest to get ideas for the classroom. I started using it several years ago, when it was in beta, so I know how huge it can be to curate and find ideas. It got me thinking that maybe using Pinterest could also be a great tool for the library. I decided to create a Pinterest account for the Library and share the information with the students and teachers at my school. What a great tool for everyone.
I decided the key was to create boards that were based on our genre selections in the Library as well as tools we could use in the library. We are adding boards left and right featuring titles, displays and specific genre.
I love using the boards to organize things. I am hoping our students and teachers also refer to the site to see what we have available. I am going to spend a large amount of my summer and snow cancellation days building the boards so they are easy to use and meet my needs. I also made a lot of posters and advertisements to put around the school and let everyone know what we have been doing. Let's hope we see an influx of people using the tool to help them out.
