What's Your Pinterest Plan?
Does your school or district have a Pinterest Plan? If not, you might want to consider leveraging the power of this very popular social media tool. So many educators use this virtual pin board to stay on top of best practices. Taking it a step further and using it to tell your school's story will do wonders for all involved. Below you will find a Pinerest Plan of sorts that can help your school or district move the educational conversation forward.
Creating and maintaining a school or district Pinterest board will help with informing school stakeholders and promoting student and staff achievements. It can also be used to highlight alumni and how they are still making your school or district proud with what they are accomplishing. The content on your school or district's Pinterest board does not have to solely focus on what is happening with your staff and student's in school. Putting focus on the great things that happen outside of the school day goes a long way in strengthening community pride.
