Pinterest as a Motivator... for me!

Blog Post created by Laura Gibbs on Mar 20, 2017

I've got a whole big stack of new student stories to read this week, and as I read each new story and send back comments to the student, I get to "pin" the new story to the Pinterest Board for the student projects... and seriously, that is a real motivator for me. It's fun to choose the image (some students use more than one image per story), and then to see the magic of the image showing up in the Pinterest Board for the class. Making accomplishments visible is not important just for the students... it gives me a boost too, so that at the end of the day I can look at the Boards and remember the stories I've been reading.

 

You can see the Boards for both my classes in this page about integrating Pinterest in Canvas. Pinterest is a tool I really like using for all kinds of purposes, and especially for creating this "snapshot" as it were of my students' projects as they evolve week by week. :-)
