Last fall on their School Systems blog, Pearson gave us an early view of education uses for Pinterest in “Four Ways to Use Pinterest in Education.” I must admit that I hadn’t yet fallen down the same Pinterest hole so many of my social media friends had. But since then, a steady march of nimble social media dabblers and experts have been plumbing the depths of this new visual bookmarking social media site. Shout outs on Twitter were becoming more frequent – “Anyone seen @SoandSo lately?” with “last seen on Pinterest” a more common refrain.
I have started to build a Pinterest page for KnowledgeWorks. Have you been exploring Pinterest as a tool for your PLN or classroom? Have you thought about the ways Pinterest can enrich the already robust information sharing conversations taking place on Twitter? A complimentary STEM board open to contributions from STEM chat members, for example?
