TECH TOOL: Pinterest

TECH TOOL: Pinterest | June 2012 Library Page | Scoop.it

Pinterest is an online pinboard.... like a corkboard, online. I'm currrently using it to plan for my new apartment. I create a new board for each room, here's my dream living room: http://pinterest.com/lizsower/living-room/.

 

How can we use it with students? We might ask them to create an online pathfinder for a topic: http://pinterest.com/lizsower/works-cited-history-research-paper/. Or students could collect favorite recipes online and share their boards with one another, like this: http://pinterest.com/lizsower/recipes/.

Curation tools to help you cope with info-overload

 

"My top three preferred platforms for sourcing and sorting through qualified curators and their content are Twitter, Scoop.it and Google Plus" says Debra Askanase on the Socialbrite blog.

 

It's interesting to read how she explains her daily routine with Scoop.it which involved both publishing and following topics she has a professional interest in. "If you have only 30 minutes each day to read the latest news in your industry, start with Scoop.it; it serves up the newest information in a very readable format."

 

Check out her topics, including Facebook research and best practices.
