I love the idea of having student create a pinterest board about them at the beginning of the year. It's creative, visual, and great for students and teachers to get to know one another. You could also have students do an online scavenger hunt for information through a pinterest board. It helps the teacher maintain control of what websites the students go to, while allowing students the control of working at their own pace.

      I love your idea about using Pinterest as an about me site for students. If teachers would get on the same technological train, the students would be able to look back at all their advances when they ... more
