Pintrest

15 Feb

If you haven’t heard of this wonderful and creativity-inducing website yet, you should probably get on it! Pintrest is such a great website full ideas, websites and blogs ranging from food to travel to education to weddings… basically you name it, someone has made a “pin” on something related to it! And as an (emerging) SLP, this is an excellent thing to have in your arsenal… but I’ll get to that in a second.

The gist of Pintrest is that it’s a new way to store your “favorites”. But visually. Instead of placing a website into your favorites folder or bookmarking it, you “pin it” to one of your pinboards. You can have pinboards for anything. Like quotes? Have a quote board. Planning a wedding? Have a wedding board. Are you a pastry chef looking for inspiration? Have a board for new pastry ideas. Like I said, you name it, you can pin it. Besides being able to store your findings visually, with a caption, there’s another great thing. You can search for what you want and it’ll load all the pins related to your search. You’ll be surprised at what a variety there is in just your search sometimes! You might search “apple pie”, and get results for normal apple pie, caramel apple pie and crustless apple pie. Crazyyy. Another great thing is that you can FOLLOW others or SPECIFIC pinboards people have. This way you can see when they post something new in general or on that board to find new ideas and add it to yours!

So, what does this have to do with Speech Pathology? Welllll… similar to the boom of SLP bloggers, there’s a burst of SLPs and other therapists, educators, etc on Pintrest as well! Even ASHA and PediaStaff have their own Pintrest.  There’s plenty of information on here for professionals and (under)grad students alike! Many have pinboards for therapy ideas, other blogs, tips and tricks, disorders, organization ideas, disorder information, etc. So, if you want to find a new therapy tactic for, say, phonological disorders, just search it and you should find something! It’s a great way to connect with others as well, as professionals, organizations and businesses are on Pintrest. So I suggest you get on that!
