As part of our Teachers for Global Classroom coursework, we had to create a Pinterest board. According to Pinterest for Dummies, Pinterest is an online pinboard, a visual take on the social bookmarking site. Unlike other social bookmarking sites, such as Digg and StumbleUpon, content shared onPinterest is driven entirely by visuals. In fact, you can’t share something on Pinterest unless an image is involved. In other words, it is an online cork board where you can pin and categorize images that interest you.
Pinterest is a great resource for images related to all aspects of Global Education and pins can take you to the source website of the image. Check out my board here: (while the images embedded only reflect pins for prom planning, there are actually global education boards there I promise!) You can also find other great resources for all aspects of teaching and learning. Warning: Pinterest is addicting!
