This is one of my favorite tools. It pulls up images too and with the new image editing tools it is so easy to put in a nice picture.

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | Web 2.0 for Education | 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"

Organize your resources in an online binder - LiveBinders

Organize your resources in an online binder - LiveBinders | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

LiveBinders is your 3-ring binder for the web.

This looks good. If you have a topic with documents or links that you want to curate and organise into categories more than scoop.it allows, livebinder would be great.
