We talk a lot about the importance of openly sharing and curating resources.
One pushback I often hear is, “I just don’t have time”. I get that. The job of an educator never ends. There are always more opportunities to look for that next practice that we could adapt for a particular student need. There is always one more possibility to try to help a learner move forward.
But what if we could organize our own resources, making them easier to access, and share with others all at the same time? We could save time for ourselves and for our colleagues – and isn’t that one of the things technology is supposed to do for us anyway?
Earlier today I stumbled upon this fabulous “how-to” video for teachers to help them use Pinterest to organize and share resources. It is worth your time to watch even if you are using PInterest already. There are several helpful tips here.
