Pinterested in Education

Prominent Edublogger Alexander Russo, somewhat reluctantly, has jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon, creating a pinboard called "Hot for Education 2012." (Why am I not surprised to see our tireless teacher-blogger Larry Ferlazzo up there?)

Pinterest, if you're not familiar with it, is the latest social-media craze. Often described as a scrapbooking tool, it lets you organize and share images—and other tidbits—gathered from around the Web. If you're interested, New York Times tech writer David Pogue has a helpful introduction. You might also try this round-up of pointers put together by (who else?) Ferlazzo.

We hear that teachers have been active on Pinterest, using it both for classroom projects (in which, for example, students pin materials to a lesson-specific board) and topical explorations. Let us know if you are using it or if you see anything that teachers in particular might want to know about.
