Anybody who does a great deal of research online will tell social networking sites can be an invaluable tool for searching, saving, and sharing what you find out there on the web. This next infographic from OnlineUniversity.Com reveals some excellent ways that educators are using Pinterest to discover and share information with their students.
Pinterest is a highly intuitive and friendly place for students to explore, discover, and share details on focused research areas. While teachers may find it a great utility for curation, students may find collaborating and adding richness to subject matter a breeze on the networking site.
Don’t be fooled, Pinterest can do as much for learning as it does for promoting. Online social sites are changing the way we interact with our world. Never before has so much information been right at our fingertips. As with any great book of knowledge, guidance is a must, but in the right hands, the possibilities are endless.
