Pinterest, a social media site that allows users to create virtual bulletin boards, is not usually classified as an educational tool. Through our project, we aimed to change this common perception and show the many benefits of incorporating Pinterest in the classroom. By using this visual bookmarking tool, instructors can create community boards where both students and themselves can “pin” any material they find online that relates to the course, such as articles, videos, and images. Students can organize and visualize content, which boosts creativity levels and stimulates the mind. This will encourage participation, and spark interest among students, without cutting into valuable lecture time.
