Using Pinterest in the Classroom

Storrs Campus

Are you looking for a new way to foster social learning in your courses? Have you considered using social media tools in your course, but you're not sure where to start?

Pinterest is a visual bookmarking site that allows you to collect, categorize, and "pin" images onto virtual "boards." As a group activity, Pinterest can be used to create engaging activities within a community of learners.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will practice pinning and commenting on their own boards and those of other participants. Discussion topics will include appropriate use of Pinterest, ensuring privacy, and best practices.

Please bring a laptop of tablet and "pin" with us!
