If I was looking to enter the fray of “numbered resources for whatever”, I could have called this post “9 Pinterest Boards for Education You Must Follow” or something like that. Fortunately, the nine of them all originate from one master!
The Pinterest site is curated by Med Knarbach and it’s a very nice, visual collection of resources. I’ve used a number of online resources to collect things – most notably my Diigo site which certainly predates Pinterest. I’m not about to move everything to a new platform but if I was starting out now, I might want to consider this approach.
Pinterest provides an engaging interface and easily allows for following boards and repinning. In this collection, look for Pinterest boards titled:
- Free Technology for Educators
- Google Guide for Teachers and Students
- YouTube Tools for Teachers and Students
- 21st Century Education
- Educational Infographics
- Free iPad Apps for Teachers
- Great Web Tools for Teachers
- The Best of TED Talks for Teachers
- Android Apps for Teachers
Together, it makes a nicely curated collection. The only thing that’s missing is the ability to tag individual boards. Maybe the visual presentation makes that unnecessary?
Check out the boards – follow one or follow them all.
