I am pretty new to it - but I am having fun.
I have seen some 'boards' where people have pinned 'crafts for kids', 'organization', journal pages (in several title variations) etc... I started following a few so I can 'repin' to my boards... so for me personally I can see lots of opportunities for inspiration and ideas.
I see creating boards for lessons.... here is one someone started, just one example... you can search to see what people are doing and lots of categories pop up, repin or follow if you like it.
http://pinterest.com/kortneyb/potential-art-lessons/
Boards for students?  
Maybe 'mystery boards'?  Images where they have to find connections...
'Comparison boards' for discussions
I like your color idea... 
It seems like just an incredibly easy way to organize ideas and images - with the links.
Feature I love:
 "a bookmarklet that users can install on their web browser, which makes pinning to the site from other web pages incredibly easy.  Simply put, if you see an image that you want to pin, all you have to do is click on the “Pin It” bookmarklet, and a window will open in your browser, allowing you to assign the pinned item to a category and add any hashtags or comments to the image before you pin it. "
How easy is that?!

I love Moo for printing - and am thinking about using the stickers this year... not sure how.  Last year I used photos my students took on a nature walk to make mini moo cards... on the back I had our class blog info and a place  to add a descriptive phrase inspired by the image - we used them for a collaborative poem.  Once we put the cards together to read the poem, we flipped it over to see the collage of images.
I don't have a rewards system in my class... but I have let the kids make stickers with a Xyron sticker maker. I punch out shapes and let the kids draw - couple of seconds later... a sticker.  Incredibly easy and inexpensive.

But Moo is so attractive - maybe for an extra special treat....

They Might be Giants are the best ever!!!  This song is from their "Here

"Here Come the 123's".  Also, on one of their earlier "adult" albums,

At home you can download it by typing 'kick' in the url before 'youtube'.... then take to school....
OR:
Just write 'save' in front of the URL in the address bar and hit enter. For example: http://saveyoutube.com/watch?v=dXP2GdqYCOM

Dear Cheri,
 
Hi my name is Andy and I am an also a member of this board.
Although, in these days I am not so active in exchanging ideas and advise and discussions.
I am sorry for that to all the active members in here.
 
I am currently working as principal of "Let's Art Youth Art Center" in Seoul as private sector.
I am also a art education professor at Seoul National University of Science & Technology.
 
Anyway, I have been lucky enough to get good advise from people in here.
I am always open for discussion and communication in art education.
I also have very large numbers of art & design educators through out the world.
Hoping to interact more vividly and actively not only in here but also in various possible ways.
 
Thanks,
 
Best Regard,
 
Andy Yeonsung Lee

> Hi everyone! 
> I have been a member of this list for awhile. My university instructor told me about it in the mid 90's, not sure which year anymore. I had forgotten about the list for awhile as I started my career as a third grade teacher, but about 5 years ago when I was offered the opportunity to teach art (my true love) at a school of arts and technology I remembered the list and joined again. 
> 
> Throughout the last five years, I have gained a lot of hints and tips and support from the group. Some ideas I use every day or changed my entire thought and practices in art education. This site gave me the courage to apply to present at a NAEA convention and now I am going on my third as a presenter (fingers crossed). 
> 
> But with that said, I also have been bit a few times for things that I have posted. And not because I had some controversial ideas, but for something like posting a link to a resourceful website. It was often very intimidating to ask questions when I first joined, because (from the posts I read or received) I felt that I might be regarded as immature or stupid. I have since become much more confident in teaching, and maybe just came to the realization that we are ALWAYS growing as educators and we all need new ideas, or even be reminded of the "oldies by goodies". 
> 
> I hope this post stays alive and I hope that we keep learning from one another. I hope EVERYONE new and old continue to post their ideas. I plan to continue to do that. There are so few of us around these days. I actually don't know of a single elementary art teacher in my county. There might be one or two out there, but I doubt any more than that. You all are my colleagues and I hope we keep this up and running.

Subject: Asking 4 help for My Teacher Friend
From: Aartteachr@aol.com
Date: Thu, 7 Jul 2011 10:54:55 -0400 (EDT)
X-Message-Number: 12
Friends and Colleagues,
I am  writing this for my best friend is moving to Orlando and who got a 
job at my  school (YIPPEE) teaching 4th through 8th grades and 7 period 
classes a day. When  I started high school 8 years ago, I dumped most of my MS 
files.
The  teacher that left (was asked to leave...long story) took all the files 
with her  and left my friend with "nada". I am asking if you have any 
curriculum maps that  she can use until she gets her feet on the ground. A move 
as a single woman plus  new job is daunting especially when she only has 2 
weeks before she is up here  and school starts for her (We start beginning of 
August..yuk).
She is  aware of lessons on IAD and has taught those grades but she had to 
leave all her  plans and curriculum at the former job where she taught for 
15 years. They  offered her a part-time art position but being single she 
cannot support herself  on that. My school actually created the position for 
her! 
Thanks for  anything you can do for her.  Send it to me via attachment as 
she does not  have a school email account yet.  Please do not send it through 
the digest  as I do not want my email address out there. The "List" has my 
email in the  From: address heading.
Thanks a million.

We are so excited, just after school recessed for the summer the art
teachers were invited to scope and sequence the new Technology
curriculum for our district. The state has changed the Technology
courses to include Art curriculum. We have been teaching Electronic
Media in the art department since 1995 and now finally the state
technology department has recognized the importance of the Elements of
Art and the Principles of design along with technique and composition.
I linked our scope and sequence to my home page (soon to be completely
reconstructed). Click on New TEA (Texas Education Association) Digital
Art and Animation and New TEA 3D Modeling and Animation for the scope
and sequence Karin Hall and I organized.
My AEM (Art Electronic Media) Home page is:
twhs.conroeisd.net/teachers/amorrison
It is interesting that the state has decided that these digital art
courses do not require Art 1 as a prerequisite. I will be doing a lot
more review and introduction to art skills than before, but it seems
my students always benefit from review anyway...
Good news for digital media.

Art teachers, especially in Tennessee:  consider Arrowmont for your professional 
development.  I just returned from a week's respite in the mountains where I 
learned how to create figurative sculpture from found materials.  I wrote a 
grant, and received an additional discount because I'm a public school teacher. 
 All in all, a weeks bed (nice accomodations) board (excellent food) and 
instruction cost me a little over $300.  And while I realize I could use the 
"free" professional development offered by my school district, I know I'll use 
this.

Ellen, we haven't been allowed to use blogger at school in the past because kids could get to other sites. 
(Now we use Google apps for other things like faculty mail. )
I'm hoping to find something simple and secure where my students can a. save images b. write artist statements, c. where I can place a rubric for them to self-assess, & d. where I can add notes & my assessment. 
So maybe this new Google development will have something. Any suggestions welcome!
We all have to increase the writing we do in the classroom, and I am hoping to avoid suddenly adding thousands of pieces of paper to my life.

Betty,
 
See if you like "Voice Threads" It is interactive and you can post art work 
 and students can do critiques. Also you can put your rubrics up and 
students can  clarify and ask questions about the objectives. I learned about it 
here on the  AP Central list.

So maybe this new Google  development will have something. Any suggestions 
welcome!
We all have to  increase the writing we do in the classroom, and I am 
hoping to avoid suddenly  adding thousands of pieces of paper to my life.

you can certainly put photos and have kids write artist statements on  
artsonia.com  You can have them comment on them as well, with parental  
monitoring of comments.
I think you can put a rubric in the description of the project, though  
I don't think they have a special section for it other than that.

Betty, you might look into Edmodo. It's pretty secure, self-contained, & you
can add files, documents, etc. Very cool site!

We have Google Apps for Education- it is a domain I set up for our  
school only. The kids have email, docs, calendar, and sites open to  
them- you can choose the apps you want available. They use docs to  
save images, write artist statements, do self evaluations and evaluate  
each others work- I can post a rubric for them to use but lately have  
used the google forms to set up the rubric and then all their  
responses feed into my spreadsheet.
We set up N-Computing in our labs, so the kids could no longer use  
flash drives to save their work- we have had google apps for a few  
years, but only a few teachers were using it- now it is being used  
much more- We'll see what changes Google+ brings to the front.

Hi Ann,
I downloaded Real Player (free version) and then whenever you watch a video online Real Player pops up in the corner and asks if you would like to download the video.  It works perfectly for me, who also does not have access to YouTube at school.  
I like Ellen's suggestion too.  I hadn't heard of that one.  I like that you don't have to remember the site, you can just type kick before the URL.  Thanks for the info, Ellen!

At home you can download it by typing 'kick' in the url before 'youtube'.... then take to school....
OR:
Just write 'save' in front of the URL in the address bar and hit enter. For example: http://saveyoutube.com/watch?v=dXP2GdqYCOM
original:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf33ueRXMzQ
new:
http://www.kickyoutube.com/watch?v=Gf33ueRXMzQ

Nice video- but do you know how to convert it to a file that can be seen at school? My school district, as many do, restricts You tube videos.
