This is actually pretty ingenious. I know that some teachers are finally getting around to using online tools in the classroom, though many school districts make it really hard for them to interact with students in online spaces. But using Pinterest — basically an online pin board — to keep track of group projects and assignments is kind of innovative.
It’s perfect when you think about it. Simply cluster all of the relevant resources and information for learning in a single place. Don’t worry about a slick educational software program where everyone needs to learn how to do complicated uploads and deal with faulty systems that don’t integrate well with existing school software. Go with a service like Pinterest that is already easy to use, and that the students are probably already keen on. Score one for technology actually being used in the classroom intuitively for a change!
