Most Popular Pins of the Year

I recently learned that WordPress users can embed their Pinterest boards into a blog post. However, I have been unsuccessful so far in getting this to work. We’ll have to settle for the screenshots of the boards plus the link. (And really, how many social media tools do I need?)  I use Pinterest because my staff also uses it to discover teaching and learning ideas. When in Rome…

Over the 2012-2013 school year, I created a pin board per month. On each board, I saved articles and posts that I thought we might find relevant, informative, and useful. Now that I am away from the office for a while, I went back through each board to see what pins were most popular. These pins were then repinned onto a new board, Most Popular Pins of the Year, which you can see below and access by clicking here.

I also have created a board for June, July, and August. It is appropriately titled, “Summer Learning, Had Me a Blast”. Whether or not you are a fan of Grease, I think it is a nice compilation of learning resources I have discovered during the summer months. Click here to check it out.
