Or you may view it below
|Name of teaching resource:
Pinterest page for Year 1 English
|Who should this digital teaching resource be used with? (ie year/grade)
Pinterest is suitable to be used for Year 1 students to use with teacher supervision.
|How should it be used? (e.g. individual, whole class)
The teacher may first show the page to the whole class in order for students to learn how to search and pin (click pins that interest them). Students can then discover pins individually or in small groups, subject to computer availability.
|Which subject or learning area would it be most appropriate to use in?
It would be most appropriate to be used in English-Language/ Phonics and word knowledge.
|Identify the strengths of this teaching resource:
Can be used as an interactive bulletin board for sharing resources with students throughout learning. Also, the teacher can visit the board, leave comments on the resources put together. Pinterest contains a filter which allows control of inappropriate materials when opening resources. It is also easy for both the student and the teacher to create and a great way for students to collaborate.
|Identify the weaknesses of this teaching resource:
One disadvantage is that each student needs to create an account to use Pinterest and may need parental permission to do so.
Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource:
If there are one or more English Language Learners in the classroom, Pinterest is a countless tool to increase vocabulary.
Students can also create group projects with the use of Pinterest boards to collaborate on group projects. Students can create boards where several users can pin.
Also, for reflection; where the teacher and students can pin materials such as student work, assignments, or anything reflecting your class on a class board.
