What is Pinterest?

Over the past few years visual pinboards have been developed to help people stay organized. Before virtual pinboards existed I would download images to folders on my desktop that I would promptly lose or forget about. I tried different naming conventions but I could never find a reference, visual, or video when I needed it most. Pinterest does not only help me stay organized but it is a social site. I can find links and resources from other teachers in my discipline, lessons, apps, and classroom tips. Edutopia even recently wrote an article on the benefits of Pinterest in education called, Pinterest for Teachers? There are other pinboard services out there that function similarly to Pinterest that I would recommend looking at before settling on one.

Check out some of our favorite educational resources from Pinterest below:
