Midway through the semester, I posted that I was using Symbaloo as the aggregator for my PLN. At the time, I was finding Symbaloo the most helpful of what I had tried thus far and was enjoying adding things to it. It was fairly easy to use and allowed me to organize things by type. With the click of a button, I was able to save things to access later and accumulate helpful resources for my future teaching career.
A few days after I made that post, I was invited by a friend to join Pinterest. I am now officially addicted. With Pinterest, you can create virtual pinboard of any type and organize them in any way you choose. You can create your own "pins" from any source on the web. I have pinned various blogs, craft ideas, listings of apps for use in the classroom, instructional YouTube videos, and many of the resources I have been provided in this class. Not only is it super easy to create your own unique pins from any web source you come across, you can also "follow" other Pinterest users with common interests and repin their pins onto your board. It's like retweeting something interesting on Twitter. I think this is a GREAT resource for upcoming teachers and anyone developing a PLN!
