Setting Up Boards
There are a lot of different strategies that you can use when creating new boards to manage your pins. Some educators like to organize their pins by grade level and others prefer to use a different board for each subject. Bright Hub Education uses a combination of both methods, and has also set up some more general boards for specific topics such as Special Education, the Education Industry and Homeschooling.
Also, you may want to create an extremely general board with a broad name, such as Education. Use this board like a catch-all kitchen drawer. That is, whenever you’re not sure how you want to categorize a pin, you can add it to this general board and move the pin later.
Note: To move a pin to a different board, hover over the image and click the Edit Pin button. Then, just choose a new board from the drop-down list, as shown in the screenshot to the right.
Whichever method you decide to use, be sure to take a few extra moments and assign a category to each board. This will make it easier for other teachers to find your pins – and make it more likely that your new pins will show up on the Education category page when you add them. If you didn’t assign a category to a board when you first created it, you can add one at any time. Just click on the Edit Board button and pick a category from the drop-down box.
