    Another teacher and I are wanting to conduct a half day PD on using Pinterest for educational reasons. We're wanting something new... I know autism is a big thing but the same old stuff every year gets OLD.

    I know we can show people the boards we have set up but how would do go about doing a 2 1/2- 3 hr PD on it.

    Any tips would be appreciated!

    That's a lot of time to talk about Pinterest!

    How about:

    how to sign up
    navigating - searching, private boards, organizing pins/boards, following others, cautioning about bad links
    district rules for accessing Pinterest from school computers (is it blocked?)
    try 2/3 pins during the PD - maybe one on curriculum type stuff and one about classroom organization/decoration

    The issue in my district is that Pinterest is blocked.

    It's just for our little school staff... teachers and paras. We figured if they didn't have an account, to show them how to set one up. Show them our boards and how to find other boards but trying to get at least an hour and a half would be our goal and then let them go "pin" things for a while. Our P is rather lax about something things.

    Could you make a school account that everyone could pin to?

    Or is there a tech coordinator who could over ride the block?

    Teachers in my district have a password/special login to surpass such blocks.
