Free Technology for Teachers: Clipboard - A Nice Tool for Visual Bookmarking

Free Technology for Teachers: Clipboard - A Nice Tool for Visual Bookmarking | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Clipboard's basic structure is similar to Pinterest in that users create private and public boards to which they can save content from the web by using the Clipboard browser extensions and bookmarklets. Clipboard does have one feature that makes it slightly better than Pinterest. That feature is the option to save Flash-based games and apps on your clipboards and using them as fully-functioning games and apps within your clipboards.
