Welcome to the sixth and penultimate step in our free professional learning series on building your PLN.

In this activity you will explore:

  1. What content curation is and the benefits of content curation.
  2. A simple framework for getting started with content curation.
  3. A range of different tools that you can choose from to make content curation easier.

What Is Content Curation?

We are living in an era of information overload. There is so much content shared online that we actively seek out people who have good content curation skills to help us “sort the wheat from the chaff”.

A person with good curation skills saves us time by sifting through the vast abundance of content on the internet to select the best, most relevant resources on a specific topic or theme. The curator organizes, manages, and collates for their own use and shares with us.

If you look closely at most educators with a high following on social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram you’ll notice that most are great content curators and share excellent resources.

Their sharing and content curation skills helped them build their PLN.

Video: What Is Content Creation?

This 90 second video provides a useful overview of content creation.

21st Century Content Curation

Of course, content curation is nothing new. It has been an important skill for hundreds of years — think of newspapers, art galleries, museums, or simple storytelling.

Teachers have always been curators too — bringing together the most worthwhile materials to help their students learn. In the past, this might have been limited to books, posters, concrete materials, guest speakers, etc. But of course, there are so many wonderful digital resources available now too.

Content curation has been happening since the beginning of time in some form or another; however, it’s becoming increasingly worthwhile and complex as the volume of information online continues to increase.

21st century content curation can involve finding, verifying, organizing, annotating, remixing, creating, collating, and sharing.

This might sound overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be. Luckily, there are some excellent free digital tools for content curation which we’ll explore in this post.

The Benefits Of Content Curation

The main reasons why educators curate content include:

  1. To find, organize, and manage information and resources on specific topics.
  2. To stay informed about the latest information on specific topics which leads to professional growth.
  3. To learn through the process. As you search for and curate the best resources, you reflect on their value and you may develop new ways of thinking.
  4. To help build their PLN. Networks actively seek and follow good content curators because they save us time.
  5. To learn how to curate themselves so they can teach students how to curate content for research, their interests, and passions. Curation is an important part of being digitally literate.

Learn more about students as content curators in this excellent short video by John Spencer.

The Curation Process

We made this diagram to simplify the process of content curation. Feel free to use it on your blog or share with others.

Read, Editorialize, Share -- The Basics Of Content Curation Edublogs PLN Teacher Challenge

1) Read — Visit your favorite blogs or social media accounts, use curation tools like Flipboard or Feedly, or perhaps subscribe to newsletters. This consumption might mostly include text-based materials but don’t forget podcasts and videos too.

FILTER — Before moving on to the next step, you need to filter. You do not just want to share anything and everything. Check out Are You a Curator or a Dumper? by Jennifer Gonzalez. You also need to verify and make sure you don’t share anything that might not be true.

2) Editorialize — Here is where you need to add your own touches to your findings to help others. This involves considering your audience and what they might be interested in. You might even put together a few similar resources that complement or contrast each other.

CREATE — Before sharing, you might consider if you could create something with the content. This could be putting your favorite quote on a graphic to make your findings more shareable. Or maybe you could make your own infographic to share based on your findings.

3) Share — As we’re discovering throughout this PLN series, you can share with your PLN in a wide range of ways. Commonly, teachers will share with their network via their blog or social media. Sometimes you might want to compile resources together into one location using a tool like Wakelet, Google Docs, or Padlet. Once you share, be willing to interact with your PLN. Invite them to comment by asking questions and don’t forget to reply to any comments. Needless to say, when you’re sharing other people’s work, you should make it clear where it’s from.

Note: we’ll be explaining the tools mentioned above further on in this post. 

Examples Of Shared Content On Twitter

Content curation is not just finding a link and putting it in a tweet. Your PLN is not going to get much value out of that.

As the curator, you can challenge yourself to do a little more from time to time.

Here are some examples of curated work from educators.

Tony Vincent is well known for his graphics he creates for social media. These are always shared extensively.

Shannon McClintock Miller put together this Padlet with ideas of books to celebrate International Dot Day.

Jake Miller regularly makes GIFs to enhance his tweets which are well received by his followers.

Quotes are always popular additions to tweets. Check out our post on quotes if you want to learn how to make your own.

Sketchnoting has taken the edtech world by storm over the last few years. Julie Woodard is well known for her excellent sketchnotes which are a great way to visualize and summarize content. Here’s an example:

BookSnaps are a popular choice for sharing snippets of professional reading. Tara Martin coined the term BookSnaps and you can read more about them on her website.

Here is an example of a simple BookSnap from Jennifer Tod.

Emojis can catch a reader’s eye and make a nice addition to a summary for the time poor.

Digital Curation Tools

There are a plethora of free digital tools you can use to help with content curation.

Tools generally fall into one of these three categories.

  • News discovery tools — Use your preferred news discovery tool to select and aggregate the content. News discovery tools save time by feeding you the most relevant content. Examples of news discovery tools include Feedly, Flipboard, Nuzzle, and following a hashtag on Twitter.
  • Curation tools — Use your preferred curation tools to display your content with context, organization, annotation, and presentation. Examples of curation tools include Scoop.IT, Flipboard, Diigo, Wakelet, LiveBinder, or a blog.
  • Sharing tools — Select which networks you share your curated content on. For example, you might share the content on Twitter and Facebook. Some people will choose to follow your curated content via your curation tools (such as follow you on Scoop.IT, Pinterest, Flipboard Magazine, or Diigo).

Overview Of Popular Curation Tools

Which tools you use, and how you curate, is very personal.

You might have a set workflow that you follow regularly, or you might dip in and out of using different tools depending on your mood and needs.

We’ll now provide a snapshot of how some of the more popular curation tools work. These include:

  • Blogs
  • Wakelet
  • Nuzzel
  • Pocket
  • Diigo
  • Evernote
  • Flipboard
  • LiveBinders
  • Pinterest
  • Scoop.it


Blogs posts are a popular way of curating content because:

  • You can dive deeper and write a detailed elaboration. You may find that the act of writing helps to transform your vague ideas into well structured thoughts.
  • You can customize and organize vast amounts of information in meaningful ways.
  • You might write a post about a single article you’ve read, or create a round-up post. This is where you share links to great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. Ideally, you’d add your own short annotations too.

Refer to Silvia Tolisano’s post on blogging as a curation platform for more information.

Check out these examples of educators who curate content using blogs:

For those who are new to blogging, we recommend you work through our personal blogging series. This series takes you step-by-step through the process of setting up your own personal educator blog.


Wakelet allows you to save, organize and tell stories with content from around the web.

This is a relatively new tool that is becoming very popular with teachers.

You can sign up for free or create a quick collection without signing up. There’s also a browser extension to save links from the web.

Your collections can be public or private. You can also embed collections on any blog or website.

Here’s a simple example:

Find out more about Wakelet including how to get set up and how to use it in the classroom in this post. 

4 steps to getting started with Wakelet by Kathleen Morris


Nuzzel logoNuzzel is a ‘news monitoring and research tool’.

If you’re on Twitter or Facebook you might have found that it can be serendipitous in nature. You sometimes just ‘see what you see’ and there are no guarantees that you won’t miss the most interesting or important stories.

When you sign up for a free Nuzzel account you can get a curated email sent to you daily with the top stories from the people you follow.

This is really handy to stay abreast of important stories. You can then explore those links and decide whether they’re worth sharing with your PLN.

With Nuzzel, you can curate your own newsletter for your followers too. You can include stories you find interesting and add a personal touch with a headline and comments.

Your PLN can subscribe to your newsletter and you can share it on social media like Troy Hicks has done here.


Sometimes you’re browsing the web or social media and you come across an interesting article, video, or link. You’d like to read it but you might be short on time.

This is where Pocket comes in. You put that item ‘in your Pocket’ for later.

You can save directly from your browser or from apps like Twitter, Feedly, or Flipboard. You can view it again when you’re ready — from your computer, phone, or tablet. You can even view the item when you’re offline.

When you’ve reviewed the items you’ve saved, you can then decided if there are any you’d like to share with your PLN.

The ad-supported version of Pocket is totally free.

Watch how this user reads his saved articles on the Pocket app.


Diigo is a free social bookmarking tool that allows users to share online resources like websites, articles, and online tools in a private or public group format.

The benefit of using a social bookmarking tool is it allows you to organize and store your bookmarks online rather than in the browser of your computer.

This means you can log into your account, on any device, at any time, and easily find your bookmarks.

Watch the following video by Ms. Lamm to learn more about Diigo.

Check out these examples of how these educators use Diigo:

  1. Vicki Davis
  2. Vicky Sedgwick
  3. Anne Mirtschin


Evernote enables you to collect information, curate resources, find your resources, and share with others all from the one workspace.

With Evernote, your notes, web clips, files, images, and voice memos can be sorted into folders, tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched, and accessed whenever you need them on any of your devices.

Evernote also enables you to view, input, and edit data even when offline.

Watch this short overview by Lindsey Maczynski about curation using Evernote.

Note: While there are still many teachers who enjoy using Evernote, changes to the free plan in 2016 resulted in some educators switching to other options. 


Flipboard was originally designed as a social network aggregation, magazine-format app for iPad in 2010. It’s now the most popular of the magazine-like content aggregation apps.

Flipboard’s strength is you are able to bring your social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn into one location alongside your favorite news sources and anything else you like to read, or watch (like YouTube). On top of this, it’s easy to share your favorite content with your social networks and easy to curate your favorite content into Flipboard magazine(s).

Watch this video to learn more about Flipboard.

Flipboard is a powerful tool for curating your favorite content into magazine(s).

The benefits of using a Flipboard magazine include:

  1. Quickly curating and sharing articles you like directly to your own magazine from within Flipboard (or using the Flip It bookmarklet in your web browser), while also sharing the articles with your social networks at the same time!
  2. Other Flipboard users can subscribe to your Flipboard magazine(s) allowing them to easily read the articles you like to share.
  3. Anyone who clicks on a link can read your magazine using their web browser regardless of whether or not they have a Flipboard account.

Here are links to some example Flipboard Magazines:

Watch this video to see how Sue Waters uses Flipboard.

You’ll find detailed step-by-step instructions on how to set up and use Flipboard here.


LiveBinders is your digital binder for all of your online content and learning.

With your LiveBinder, you can create a central hub full of resources on a topic that you choose. Almost everything that you can think of can be added to your LiveBinder – links to websites, YouTube videos, Flickr images, PDF/Microsoft Word documents, and QR codes are just some examples of rich content for your LiveBinder.

Check out Joy Kirr’s Genius Hour LiveBinder to see how Livebinder can be used for curating resources.

Click here to open this binder in a new window.

Refer to the Educator’s Guide to LiveBinders to get started.


Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board or pinboard that allows you to find and curate images, videos, or websites.

The visual aspect of Pinterest is a key reason why it’s captured the interest of so many.

You add items to your Pinterest accounts using pins. A pin is a visual bookmark which could be an image, video, slideshare, or a web clip of a site.

When you click on a pin it takes you to the site where the pin was sourced from so you can learn more.

Some people think of Pinterest as a social media platform but it’s really more like a search engine. Pinterest calls itself a visual discovery engine.

Watch this video tutorial to learn more about Pinterest.

You can check out how we use Pinterest here.

Examples of educators using Pinterest to curate and share:

  1. Eric Sheninger
  2. Larry Ferlazzo
  3. Vicky Davis
  4. Cult of Pedagogy


Scoop.it allows you to create a web page to share what you find interesting with the world.

It does this combining clever curation tools that make it easy to gather content in one place with a wide range of sharing functionalities to let people know about your Scoop.it page.

Watch this video to learn more about Scoop.it.

Check out these examples of how Scoop.it can be used:

Curation Pitfalls

Kay Oddone created this diagram based on a presentation by Joyce Seitzinger.

It summarizes some of the pitfalls you want to avoid as a content curator.

Content Curation Pitfalls
Image by Kay Oddone

The Hoarder: a curator who collects everything indiscriminately, who doesn’t organise their content, and doesn’t share – this is really closer to simple aggregation than curation.

The Scrooge: one who, similarly hoards their information – although they may organise their collection, they don’t share either; one of the key purposes of educational content curation!

The Tabloid (or National Enquirer): a collector who indiscriminately collates everything together, and generously shares this aggregation, whether others want/need it or not!

The Robot: a curator who uses tools to shares automatically, with no context related additions or value adding; in this case, the curation is really no better than providing a list of Google search results.

Avoiding these pitfalls is what differentiates the effective content curator from those simply ‘collecting’ content.

Visit Kay’s post to learn more about content curation.

Create Your Own Workflow

Remember, while there are tools that can help with the aggregation and organization of all the great resources you’re coming across, technology can’t do the curation. This is the job for a human who knows their audience (their PLN).

We encourage you to try out the following process if you’re ready to give content curation a go:

  1. Find the tool(s) that you prefer to use for news discovery, for curation, and for sharing.
  2. Curate the content that helps you, and is helpful for others.
  3. Make it part of your routine to curate and share content.

As you get going and try different tools, your wants and needs might evolve. You’ll figure out the pros and cons of different tools as you use them.

Stick with it and you’ll begin to develop your own workflow that works for you!

Want to see an example of a workflow?

Richard Byrne is a master curator, keeping hundreds of thousands of teachers in the loop on a daily basis. Watch how he uses Feedly and Google Keep together.

Watch David McGavock’s video to see how he use Netvibes, Scoop.IT, and Diigo as his curation and learning tools.

  1. First, I would like to start by specifying that by reading about all the above tools, I find them relevant and complementary. However, certain considerations must be made in relation to the target audience for the publication, there is also the taking of the content to be published so the benefits of each tool to meet a specific need.
    In addition, there is a question of relevance in relation to certain key factors for the curator, so each tool may be more useful in one category of article and less so in another. This is why it seems more relevant to me to remain flexible on the choice of a specific tool, but to use them according to the needs.
    Personally, I am at the beginning of my learning about curation, although in my experiences as a teacher the act of curation is not new to me either.
    By analyzing the different tools, blogs seem like a simpler tool to use, moreover it gives the opportunity to better elaborate on the resources to be published within the framework of the curation. Besides feedly, pinterest, wakelet and pocket seem like interesting tools that I already plan to use them on various subjects because of their simplicity, also the economic factor of time. Nevertheless, I plan to explore each tool presented here and see how I can use them in different situations.

  2. I don’t use any of them at this time. My first day of teaching was Friday. Looking over the offerings, there are several, including following Tony Vincent that I plan on using, including his fake text app to Create classroom instructions. Also the flip book for the students to share information they have gathered for assignments. Bookmarking this page for future use for sure.

  3. I don’t have much experience using any of those tools for education purposes. We had aa project in my undergraduate where we had to make a pinterest board with community building activities. I forgot that you can google things and save it to pinterest, it doesn’t have to already be someone else’s pin. I might want to try that tool again. I did just try diigo to bookmark the links from the course I am taking. I wish I knew about this tool a long time ago! It will make organizing my resources a lot easier.

  4. A curation tool that I have been using for like half of my life I believe is Pinterest. I love how I can create folders of different things and then organize it how I like. I have folders for classroom management, specific subjects, and many other categories. I would like to try Livebinder as it does sound interesting to organize things.

  5. I currently use Twitter for getting most of my news. My wife has quite a bit of experience with Pinterest, she uses it in her classroom to help curate information from current ag issues. She also uses it to help find woodworking projects.
    I am interest in using Flipboard. Since I use mostly Twitter and Facebook a little I like how Flipboard can pull from those sites to help organize information.

  6. I cannot express how excited I am at the moment about Diigo. In just 10 minutes, I curated all the resources from my CUNE class into one location. I wish I had known about this tool in week 1 as my note-taking and reflection writing would have been much more streamlined. Here is my Flipboard account: Judy Musick Flipboard

  7. I had only ever used or heard of Pinterest and LiveBinders prior to reading through this step. As a student, I used LiveBinders in a class many years ago and have used Pinterest for both education and personal. Pinterest has been an excellent way to browse and save information for future use to come sort through. Over the years I’ve seen a lot of good resources for FCS teachers on Pinterest.

  8. My most used curation tool is Pinterest. It’s a great way to gather all of the ideas for my classroom that I am interested in using and putting them into a board that I can easily go back and access. When I first started using Pinterest for teaching, I created only two boards for Classroom Ideas and Art Ideas. I need to now go back and create more subject-driven boards that will allow me to even more easily access pins for specific subjects like science, social studies, math, etc. I am interested in taking a closer look at Pocket. My current go-to is to email myself links to articles or ideas that I find and go back to look at them later. This seems like it could potentially be a great tool to place those ideas all in one place to go back to, instead of scrolling through my emails to find all of the ideas I sent to myself.

  9. I currently use Pinterest and Instagram. I like Pinterest a lot because it is easy to search, locate, and save boards for easy reference later. It’s also very fast. I am considering trying Evernote in the future. I find having too many becomes overwhelming to me.

  10. I already have a Pinterest account that I use all the time. I have lots of pins on it but nothing relating to education yet. I definitely use Pinterest as a great resource when coming up with activities to do in my lesson plans and I will have to start pinning those to my page so more people can see them!
    Pinterest: macythompson4

  11. I currently am only on Pinterest, but after reading about other curation tools, I would like to learn more about/use Pocket, Evernote, and Flipboard. Pocket sounds incredibly useful because I’m always busy doing school work and I tend to find a lot of articles I find interesting, yet never seem to go back to; with Pocket, you can store those articles and read them at a later date when you have more time. Evernote is one I have heard of but have never used; you can organize your links and resources into folders, share them with others, and annotate them for your own use. Flipboard is another tool I’ve heard of, but have never used; I think it’s a neat tool to store everything all together to create “magazines” for personal use or for extended use and you can organize it in any way you like.

  12. Soooo many resources! I have to admit it is overwhelming. I am going to play with a few of them, like Flipboard and pocket, but in the meantime, you can find me (and my pins) on Pinterest: @bethtappen

  13. Almost every contemporary content platform has its own version of a curation tool, whether it be a search function, subscribe function, etc. Some of these platforms are much better at enabling these tools than others, but they all usually do a satisfactory job with providing curated content for specific topics and goals. The double-edged sword of the ability to search an innumerable number of topics on an innumerable number of platforms has both pros and cons. The sheer amount of information available on the internet is astounding and quite impressive, but it is often littered with useless or outright false content created by delusional know-nothings. It is our own responsibility to use curated content in a way that informs truthfully, guides productively, and enables our development as empathetic and effective educators. In the last few years, I have become partial to the Youtube algorithm in automatically curating content based for me based on my previous viewing habits. Frequently, my suggested videos are educational in one way or another; college-level lectures, conversations between experts in a field, new updates on discoveries made about space by the James Webb Space Telescope, etc. Although I am a passive user of this algorithm, and the chance for it going off the rails quite quickly is always a risk, the tools incorporated at the base level into some of these platforms today can augment the ability of the user in order to display content that is tangentially related, sparking new paths of curiosity.

  14. Curation is important if we want to distill our messaging to cut through some of the noise in the online/social media world. Ultra-specific hashtags helps narrow the focus, so I always try to search using precise terms, even if it means I end up with fewer hits. I currently use Instagram and TikTok, and sometimes Pinterest, but the way the external links work on that platform is aggravating and disjointed, so I find myself accessing it less and less. I don’t interact with content creators very often, because I’m not very online, but I like being able to search for education-specific media using curated hashtags when researching best practices, or looking for sources for lesson plan inspiration.

  15. The only tool that I currently use is Pinterest. My main use for it is to create different boards I would like to incorporate, such as lesson plan ideas, classroom essentials, or various tools that can be used in the classroom. I enjoy how simple it is to use and create different ideas. In the future, I would be interested in looking into various blogs to gain more knowledge of useful ideas and educational tips. 

  16. I have used flipboard and pinterest in the past mostly to gather information on other topics or search for ideas for a project. I want to try and use LiveBinders in the future because you can create a big virtual binder of all different types of topics and information which seems very interesting. It may be good for studying as well to create a little study sheet based on topics throughout the year.

  17. Out of all the popular curation tools listed, I found Pocket to be one that would fit my needs the best, for I find myself often going through a lot of different items of information like videos, articles, and links. However, I don’t have enough time to read over every single one, so Pocket allows me to save these items for later. This helps me go through more material in shorter time as well as properly curate everything I am going over. As one who prides himself in time-management, I feel like this is something I should’ve already been using.

  18. A popular curation tool that I love to use is Pinterest! Pinterest helps me find lesson plans, classroom inspiration, and organizational ideas shared by educators. I have curated my own classroom inspiration board based on classroom images posted by current teachers and have applied many of their ideas into my own room. I have also found many examples of anchor charts to use as models during instruction. However, I don’t just think it is valuable as an educational tool, but a platform in which you can find ideas to apply in daily life such as recipes and home diy projects.

  19. Currently, I use Pinterest for curation. I really enjoy using this tool because I am a visual learner, and I find Pinterest to be one of the most visually stimulating tools. It helps to keep my mind organized as I scroll through, looking for more tools. I plan to try out Pocket because I already bookmark several resources to “save for later.” Having a specific application dedicated to the collection of resources I want to review at a later time will ensure that my bookmarks tab is organized, and I will be able to find all of my sources within the same space. I haven’t heard of any other tools besides the ones mentioned, but I am sure they exist.

  20. I currently use youtube and Pinterest as my main curation tool. With those sites I am very mindful of the content I engage with I’m always doing my best to make the algorithm work for me. I am the master of my experience with the internet and I need to take charge of that.

  21. A curation tool that I use is Pinterest because it’s a tool where the different contexts of the things that people post on Pinterest and use those ideas to post on social media. As a teacher, I would also use Flipboard and probably Scoop.It is because they’re both tools that people use to publish any content and for people to comment and engage with others have to point out. People can use the same blog or post to spread the content so that people are aware of what others have to say and do. In a classroom, it can be an example where we see these blogs and posts that people put on the internet and can be in a discussion where other students may have different opinions. For example, look for teacher quotes that can be discussed in the classroom with students for them to share their thoughts and maybe have an argument about why they stand with what they are saying.

  22. I am so familiarized with social media facebook, instagram, youtubes and gmail/yahoo. Discovering new sites trying to build more interesting and engaging fun on socializing on networking instead of using the same old websites that is kind of boring so far. However, in light of that I have found Flipboard that captivating my attention on creating magazines that I already did.

  23. I only use Pinterest on a regular basis. I love using it and I actually almost use it daily. I seek using Pinterest to help spark my creativity and to get inspiration regarding my classroom or my outside personal life. For my classroom, I use Pinterest for my cooking recipes, nail design inspiration, outfit inspiration, home decor ideas, organization tips and much more. Especially since I am a 2024 Bride!! Pinterest helps me get all of my ideas and visions come to life.

    For my classroom I use Pinterest all the time! For bulletin board ideas, lesson plan supplementals, student project ideas, teacher outfit inspiration and more.

    One curation tool that I want to start using more is Evernote. Evernote allows you to collection information, curate resources, search your resources and share with others.

  24. I just got Flipboard and here is the link. https://flipboard.com/topic/educationtechnology
    Curating is something I have not done much of at all. I have never really spent time doing it so it will take some time to get the hang of it. In order to do that, I think committing to just one curated post of my own a week. I am curious to see the improvement moving forward.

  25. I currently use many of these tools to help curate information that pertains to furthering my education to help understand and teach my students. The platforms I use are Flipboard, Twitter, Wakelet, Pinterest, Youtube, LinkedIn, and LiveBinder.

  26. I pretty much just use pinterest, but I have used Waklet and Diigo in the past. I would like to explore the latter two again because I feel I could use them well with students.

  27. Because there is so much information on the internet, it is important that teachers are able to efficiently filter through information to access the resources that most benefit them. On the flip side of that, for sharing it is important to consider what makes certain tweets, blogs, or posts appealing to you as a reader. If your posts do not stand out in a sea of other posts, not as many people will access your resources.

  28. I signed up with pinterest to organize my ideas into different pin sections such as teacher tools, teacher wants, lesson plan ideas, classroom needs, etc.

  29. I love using Pinterest. Pinterest is such a fun creative space that provides so many beneficial resources including lesson plans, activities, different learning methods, and creative classroom setups. It is fast to use and easily accessible to so many great things. I highly think everyone should have a Pinterest account.

  30. I currently use Youtube and Pinterest when looking for ideas for activities. I love pinterest because I have multiple boards for different projects and it makes planning for units easier. I also live how youtube gives me the visual where sometimes pinterest can be confusing. I am very intrigued by livebinder, I think it could really help reduce paper and organize my clutter,

  31. I currently use pinterest and blogs because they are the fastest and easiest to use in a hurry. I use pinterest as a visual aid to get ideas together while I use blogs to broaden my knowledge to make activities better for children. I would like to use tik tok because there are a lot of kids and teachers. I feel if I can use it for good kids ,teachers and parents can use it at home with their kids as well.

  32. I currently use YouTube, instagram, Facebook, etc. I would use Pinterest because it’s a nice way to see certain classroom work examples, methods to learning for the students.
