The Best Pinterest Boards In Education [Updated]
by TeachThought Staff
Websites, facebook, and twitter aren’t the only digital tools that can help you keep up with the latest trends, ideas, and resources in education.
While seemingly saturated with images that are simply links to downloadable, for-purchase products, Pinterest remains one of the most useful teacher improvement tools around. Compared to some of the toxicity that can be found on other social media platforms, Pinterest remains easy-to-use to the point of being addictive and over the last decade has clearly become a favorite tool of educators.
Many of these educators have amassed outstanding collections of edtech-related pins that teachers and students alike can use to explore new ways to learn, share, teach, and grow. While it would be nearly impossible to highlight every edtech pinboard out there, we’ve shared some of the boards we think stand out among the crowd here.
Many are maintained by major educational websites, key figures in edtech, and well-known bloggers, but others were created by teachers just like you who simply want to share resources and tips with others in education.
We’ve updated the list to reflect emerging education trends as well as a broader colection that’s not simply education technology so it could be (effectively) argued that these may not represent the absolute ‘best’ Pinterest boards in education but rather a diverse collection of many of the best Pinterest boards in education. We hope you find it useful.
