Wellicht handig om de Pinterest-pagina van je school/klas te embedden in je klassenblog/schoolwebsite...

I like this chrome extension. A neat new way to curate and integrate into your main page. Interesting way to showcase a team project to showcase information back and forth. We tried this for one of our group projects as an assignment.

So far I've been using PInterest for my personal things...just for fun.
However, it definitely has the potential for professional use.

Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters

Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Pinterest has rolled out a newsletter that emails users curated content.

 

From Mashable: "Users on Pinterest usually have to seek interesting content for themselves, but a new feature quietly rolled out today drives them to even more personalized content.


...many users are sure to appreciate Pinterest’s new weekly email newsletter, making it easier to find even more great pins and helping them keep tabs on how their own pins are doing.


Mimicking the website’s pinboard style, each pin or board in the email is linked to the website, but users are unable to re-pin or like a post directly from the newsletter.

 

The newsletter lists a few popular boards, pins from friends that might be of interest and a useful feature for brands especially: your most popular pins of the week."

5 Insights on Facebook vs Pinterest in Driving Sales - Infographic

5 Insights on Facebook vs Pinterest in Driving Sales - Infographic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Pinterest has been grabbing the headlines recently as its network approaches 20 million users per month.

 

In March compete.com reported that Pinterest had received 18 million unique visitors with AppData reporting that the visual social network had received a record 4.4 million daily active users on March 18.

 

There are reports that Pinterest’s growth is slowing but just like Twitter and Facebook reports of its demise maybe slightly premature.

 

The Power of “Low Friction” Photo Sharing

 

Pinterest’s value to marketers is that it provides an easy to use platform for “pinning” images, photos and videos to your Pinterest account while also posting and sharing to your networks to Facebook and Twitter in the same process.


Pinterest reduces the effort and friction to share images on the social web which crowd sources your marketing and the spreading of your brand images.

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"

Eyes On Pinterest: How People Look at Your Boards

Eyes On Pinterest: How People Look at Your Boards | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Pinterest doesn’t just look different than other social networks — it’s looked at in a different way, too.

While most websites draw users’ gazes toward the left-hand side of the page, participants in a recent eye-tracking study for Mashable instead shifted their eyes from the top down the middle of the page. They also spent relatively less time looking at profile information than their counterparts who looked at Facebook pages.
