I do this!
Wed Jul 10, 2013 16:39

I sort of do this. I use pinterest to pin ideas or resources I want to use in the classroom. Then I got to work and pull up whatever it is I pinned. I don't do it for everything but I do it for a lot of things.

        Lindsay, you are making me want to go now and make a symbaloo account. I haven't done it yet but I think I might have to. Have you found that it has made your life easier? Is it better than pinterest?
        • SYMBALOO - aaronlp, Thu Jul 11 13:46

        • Symbaloo - Myra Leonhardt, Thu Jul 11 01:41
          We had a workshop on symbaloo and I have wanted to organize my sites on it! one of my friends uses it daily. Reading your comments inspires me to make it happen.
      • Interested - Rebecca Bond, Wed Jul 10 22:55
        I have heard of Symaloo and contemplated looking into it. Now, you have got me interested in it again, I am going to definitely going to look at it now. Having all websites on one screen is appealing.

        When you do this do you have it labeled for each day of the week? Is there a certain way that you have this organized? I 'd love more information!
        • It depends - lohrmk, Wed Jul 10 19:29
          Usually, I just label it for whatever the purpose is. So, like if I'm using it for writing, I pin it there and then I just go and open it up. So, I do it by subject matter. I hadn't thought of doing... more
