I have recently started using Pinterest as a method for organizing pictures found on the web. Most importantly, it has given me a very graphic pleasing way to view apps that I have used in my classroom. I like the way a comment can be quickly added to each picture.
I have created a couple Pinterest boards that are useful in education.
- iPad Apps In Education
- Mathematics really like this as I can save many pictures for later use in blog posts
With the discovery of Pinterest, I am certain that I will be using it more as an organizational tool!
I am also considering how I can use this with students other than blog posts. My first thought is to have them create their own Pinterest account during a problem or project so that they can organize the pictures they find.
