The first Talking Tuesday will explore the use of Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/) for learning and teaching.
We have Rebecca Foster from ISES sharing her experiences of using Pinterest with second year PE students.
You may have already heard of the work Genea Alexander has done with Pininterest and NQTs-
“Looking for inspiration for that lesson you are struggling to plan or that display board with which you’re not sure what to do? Do you want reassurance from fellow NQTs that you have the most rewarding job in the world? Then look no further. Our NQT Pinterest page has lots of inspiration for NQTs starting their new career in the classroom and what’s more, you can share your experiences and successes with others via our page. I have been working very closely with Jennifer Swain, one of our very own University of Worcester NQTs and the result is a great space – requested by you – to pin supportive ideas and resources in a central location. Jennifer has worked extremely hard on this and I would encourage you to both take a look and share your good practice with fellow University of Worcester alumni.
How do I access NQTPinterest?
To access the page, please click the following link http://www.pinterest.com/nqtpinterest/. From here you will be able to access all of our boards which are themes based around various aspects of school life.
We hope that you feel this a valuable resource in supporting and inspiring you in your career, and also invite you to share your own ideas with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This can be from personal achievements (display boards, classroom/seating arrangements, those impressive pieces of children’s work that make you extremely proud etc.) or inspiring ideas found online to which we could add a link.
Genea & Jennifer”.
