Pindex is Pinterest for educators. In addition to saving and curating resources, educator accounts offer educators the ability to assign boards to students along with quizzes. Create boards then add content by using the + button to add video, links, documents, images, and more. Use the site's search feature to find boards created by other users, then save any desired content to your account. Assign boards to students then track progress under the quiz feature. Students earn "Internet gold" awards as they complete assignments.

tag(s): assessment (124), bookmarks (52), quizzes (91), social networking (90), Teacher Utilities (77)

In the Classroom

Because Pindex is specifically for educators, this site makes it easier to find and save information for classroom use. Collaborate with other teachers in your building or subject area to create boards with teaching resources. Take advantage of Pindex's quiz feature to create boards for any topic and assess student learning. Use Pindex as part of flipped learning lessons or as a learning center. Extend learning after students complete quizzes using Synth, reviewed here, to have students discuss information shared on the site. Synth is similar to Twitter, but is an audio resource. Have students share a short audio response related to their learning, then Synth threads all student discussions to create a podcast to share.

Include this site with your other resources for practicing and teaching writing as you challenge students to improve feedback scores. Take advantage of the different levels to differentiate practice for all students. Ask students to analyze their writing before hitting the feedback button as a self-reflection tool. As students improve writing, use a digital portfolio tool like Seesaw, reviewed here, and upload all revisions. Also, use Seesaw for students to share their thoughts on their writing and individual progress.
