16 ways that educators use Pinterest

Linda Ross recently dropped me a line and recommended that I have look at the infographic below entitled 16 ways educators use Pinterest. I haven’t used Pinterest before, but John S Oliver has and he has blogged about it here. John reckons that he has “had far more responses there than Facebook and Twitter”. I’ve had a quick look at Pinterest and it reminds me a lot of Twine (remember Twine? O how I miss Twine), and other social bookmarking tools with enhanced functionality. Definitely worth checking out.

About ictenhancedlearningandteaching

I am a director and consultant at Ethos Consultancy NZ (http://www.ethosconsultancynz.com/). I have a keen interest in all aspects of ICT Enhanced Learning and Teaching (ICTELT) where the focus lies on ways of scaffolding and empowering learners. In particular, I am interested in the way that creative, blended approached to Academic Professional Development can create trust, rapport and encourage reflective practice. As such, ICTELT is approached from facilitation, design, evaluation and assessment as opposed to the tools and what they can offer. I am a strong advocate of the potential of Web 2.0 to empower learners from all walks of life and cultures, especially after my experiences working for 6 years in the Middle East. In particular, I am interested how ePortfolios can be used in the VET sector (especially where Literacy and Language challenges are faced), in Recognition of Prior Learning, and in authentic, applied assessment. I have been involved with designing and developing ICTELT approaches and programmes for ten years. Following research informed approaches and design, I apply a qualitative, iterative process to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions, programmes and tools, encouraging learners' voices and input from all stakeholders.
