Recently, I taught a course on using Pinterest in the classroom to a group of college professors. They were interested in this relatively new social media platform and were looking for new ways to connect with students on a social media level.
In this workbook, step-by-step set instructions are shared, along with best practices, tips, and case studies of other educational institutions’ use of this media for learning purposes. Also incorporated are instructions for students and instructor to get started with Pinterest, including setting up accounts, creating boards, and pinning resources to the board. Hands-on activities may be included.
- Provide faculty and staff with an understanding of what Pinterest is and how it may be used in the classroom environment.
- Share a step-by-step implementation plan on setting up a Pinterest board and starting the process
- Share case studies and examples of educational institutions using Pinterest within the classroom, along with best practices.
Audience experience level:
- Beginner to Intermediate
