Pinterest for Educators

The purpose of this post is to help educators understand the use of Pinterest for Education. Pinterest is a bookmarking and curation service that can be used to create pins (think of them as thumbtacks in a bulletin board). These boards are at the cornerstone of how Pinterest works and can host a variety of multimedia content such as audio, image, video and website links. According to Baker (2013), this service can be used to “gather and share teaching resources, professional development articles, and ideas for integrating technology and digital literacy into the curriculum” (p. 74). Best of all Pinterest is free to use, and educators interested in signing up for this service can create a traditional account via e-mail and password or use the Facebook login option.
