The Graphics Fairy - How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest

The Graphics Fairy -  How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

This is a neat little trick that my son taught me. I'm sure some of you probably already know about this, but in case you didn't I think you will find it to be super handy, particularly if you are a Pinterest user! More than a few times, I've clicked on a Pinterest Pin, in order to find the instructions to an awesome Craft Tutorial, only to find that the Pin went somewhere other than the original source. If that happens to you, this is how you can find it.

So many people are on Pinterest, that it only makes since that teachers and librarians try to use these resources. This article talks about how to use Pinterest to organize information, so that is can easily be found by students, and since it is through a site most teens use, its an engaging tool.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I was introduced to Pinterest by one of my students about six months before the boom that made Pinterest a household word.
