As education professionals, we attend a lot of professional development sessions each year and into our summers. Up until recently, I did not have a proper system for storing the information.
When I first started teaching I made a new paper file folder for each session and put all the handouts into the folders. I quickly learned that I had no place to store all of this information and I would forget what each folder had inside of it. I needed a better system that I worked for me.
The Paper Solution
The Two-Fold Digital Solution: Google Drive and Pinterest
What about digital ideas?
I love Pinterest. I use Pinterest to organize all the great ideas I find on blogs, teaching websites and Google. Create a different board for each subject you teach or each topic you cover. Then you just have to glance at your specific board to find an idea that might spark a great lesson.
