Stephen Fry Launches Pindex, a “Pinterest for Education”

Stephen Fry Launches Pindex, a “Pinterest for Education” | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Who can now deny that, in the internet, we have the greatest educational tool ever conceived by mankind? Surely no Open Culture reader would deny it, anyway, nor could they fail to take an interest in a new startup aiming to increase the internet's educational power further still:
Peter Mellow's insight:
April 6th 2016 - To date, I have found Pindex very disappointing as a potential education tool. A very limited toolset, perhaps better suited for a school audience or the general public. Hopefully they will take feedback on board and add some of the features that are missing.

A Curated Collection of Pinterest-Like Web Sites: Pinteresti.st

A Curated Collection of Pinterest-Like Web Sites: Pinteresti.st | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: A curated collection of Pinterest-like web sites, in perfect Pinterest-like style.

As an increasing number of brands and smaller publishers are adopting a Pinterest-like layout approach to make their content more accessible, someone has decided to start collecting and organizing the best of these.

 

"Pinterest Pinterest Pinterest. It’s spread like a hot, juicy rumor over Twitter, infecting (or improving, depending on how you look at it) the way we use the Internet. Think of it as the Pinterest-ifictation of the Web.


If Tumblr were designed today it might look like Pinterest. All Pinterest did was take the Tumblr feed — a mishmash of uploaded, reblogged and remixed words and images — and make it easier to skim. Rather than scroll endlessly through a single feed of content, Pinterest displays it in as many columns as your browser width can handle..."

Four Ways to Use Pinterest in Education

Four Ways to Use Pinterest in Education | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

It seems as though when one technology tool for the classroom is introduced, another one is waiting to make its debut! We’ve shared several 21st century tools with our readers; however, we have not acquainted you with a recent tool, Pinterest.

 

Pinterest is an electronic bulletin board where users can “pin” images from around the web. These images are then categorized into various boards on the users’ profile. Pins are also shared and searchable, which makes Pinterest a wonderful resource for visual information. So what are these pin boards good for with regards to integrating them into the classroom?

Pinterest Rolls Out Curated Newsletter for Users

Pinterest Rolls Out Curated Newsletter for Users | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Pinterest has rolled out a newsletter that emails users curated content.

 

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.

Content can be added to a "notebook" via standard bookmarklet or by using an internal search feature which gathers all types of relevant content.

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Clipix is a Pinterest-like clipping and collection app which allows you to capture images and content from any web page and to organize it in custom visual boards.

One key feature that differentiates Clipix from Pinterest (though it is likely that Pinterest will add this feature soon as well) is the ability to organize together multiple sets into a "multiboard".

 

Other key features include a "Price Drop Alert" which emails you when the price of one of the commercial products you have clipped drops and 

"...For example you might have a multiboard that you call “Recipe Ideas” and inside you’d have 3 clipboards: Baking Recipes, Soup Recipes, and Health Recipes.

 

The easiest way to create a multiboard is by dragging one clipboard from the icon in the lower right-hand corner into another clipboard."

Sounds cool, if only Pinterest didn't exist already (or zillions of other similar websites for that matter). thanks for curating and sharing though.
Robin Good's comment, July 15, 2012 3:26 AM
Thank you Lelapin. The world is beautiful because it is varied. Pinterest will soon lose its "mojo" to many of these more specialized clones, which will provide more immediate value to those specifically interested in that specific area or application. I may be wrong but this is what I expect to happen.
