Some call Learnist a " Pinterest like" site for educators, and part of Learnist is just that. There are other sides to Learnist: there is the Business side, the Health and Fitness side, the Art and Design side, the Technology side, and more. Learnist seems to have a cleaner presence. Those who have tried Pinterest, even if you were a little intimidated, take a look at Learnist. Learnist has a bookmarklet that allows you to add a URL without going back to the site, which makes developing "Learnboards" quick and easy. Whether you want to collect your ideas on Learnist or just browse to learn from others, its clean look and simple organization will probably make you a Learnist fan.

In the Classroom

Learnist will allow you to try something as challenging as a flipped-classroom assignment or as easy as putting a Learnboard together for students to investigate a topic. Create a Learnboard with a new current event for the day or week for students to read. Create a Learnboard for a grammar problem your students have, being sure to include videos and interactive practice activities. Create a Learnboard for a novel you will read in class. Have students use a class account to create a Learnboard as the final project for their literature circle novel. In science, students could video or take pictures of a lab experiment, upload and annotate it, adding related web resources. As students begin a long term research project, have them create Learnboards of the source they want to use. Allow a Learnboard swap so everyone "learns" from each other.
