Jill's Pinnovation
I have created categories of interest to my students and pinned anything and everything I think might be of interest to them. We use it to display library activities, provide research paper assistance, help with their Chromebooks, or even just book suggestions. Students also suggest boards for us to follow. I use it professionally to pin ideas for displays, bulletin boards, contests, cataloging, technology, and lesson plans.

Visit these boards which archive school-wide events: http://www.pinterest.com/nwmhsmedia/divergent-reading-challenge/

Ever face the problem of not having enough display space to create interest grabbers for your students? Never again when you use Pinterest boards to create virtual display cases:

Jill's Tip:
When I began, I did not think large-scale enough. I would suggest to new pinners that you think large scale and make a board for anything you might be interested in. By thinking small-scale, my boards quickly became unruly with the amounts of information and they were hard to navigate. It then took more time to break down my boards and move things around. It's always a work in progress, but I wish I had not just gone "pin crazy" and pinned everything without making boards to help organize myself first!
