Morgan, you can make a board that is public private but you can make a board that is private public. To edit this go to your boards page and click edit on the specific board. It should be down at the bottom. At the moment, I've used my private Pinterest account for the assignment, but if/when I start using it in my classroom I will create a new account. While I'm careful about what I pin, teachers are under so much scrutiny I wouldn't want my personal post to cost me my job.

    I already have a pinterest account. If you are planning to use Pinterest, are you going to create one just for school, or use your personal one? I wanted to use my personal one, but I can't figure... more
    • New Pinterest Account - Hannah Andrews, Wed Jul 10 08:55
      I didn't know how I was going to keep my personal boards private and my public boards public so I decided to make a new account where everything would be public.
      • Fear - Paige Moretz, Wed Jul 10 12:51
        Hannah, I always, always have this fear that something I say or (in this case) "pin" online will get me in trouble with a parent, student, or administrator. I think it was smart of you to just do a... more

      • public and private - Myra Leonhardt, Wed Jul 10 23:34
        That is exactly what I did. I created a new account just for use in my classroom. I did not want parents/students to have access to my personal pins. I am very cautious about what I put on-line... more

          There seems to be a certain lack of privacy to pinterst. Anyone can follow you. I have a few students who follow some of my personal boards. They just searched my name and I popped up. Unlike... more

      Morgan I already have one too, it is fairly new, but I wonder if it would not be best to keep one just for school. I feel like a twitter just for school may be best as well. I have had a twitter for... more

        I love finding ways to make connections for kids but sometimes I don't like how our jobs are included on social media. It's not that I post bad things on there but I love posting pictures of things... more
      • Agree - Paige Moretz, Wed Jul 10 13:01
        It's awful we have to be so careful, but it's always wiser to be careful. And that's a good point that just having some things hidden and some things not could be suspicious. Also, doesn't... more
        • Agree x2 - lohrmk, Wed Jul 10 14:47
          I also agree that it is better safe than sorry! I have personal social networking sites like Facebook and Pinterest but I try to keep all of the separate from school. I don't friend students or... more
          • So True! - Paige Moretz, Wed Jul 10 22:23
            I think it's always best to have two separate accounts. I mean, most of us are not doing anything nefarious online, but things can be so misinterpreted! I would never friend students or parents... more
    • made a new one - Morgan Williams, Tue Jul 9 16:19
      Thanks for you help. I decided it might be easier if I just made one for my classroom. I am not sure whether I will give my students access to pin on it, but if I decide to I figured it made more... more
      • Pinterest Change of Mind - Natalie Kabel, Wed Jul 10 16:16
        I think after reading all of this, I am thinking about making a pinterest for school. When you did, did you have to use a different email address? Can someone explain how that works?

      Morgan, I was going to use my own account and just create a board for school but I would like to know another way to do this as well!!

      Morgan, I think I have a solution. Let me play around with it and I will get back to you!
