Find Cool Educational Ideas on Pinerest!

Pinterest is an up-and-coming new social site but it’s about stuff. It’s a virtual corkboard or pin board where you can “pin up” the things that you find interesting. Their mission is:
“is to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.”

I first found out about Pinterest from our Creation Studio staff. They were using it to share ideas about set design. Jill, one of our artists, is also an avid knitter and spinner. Her board (s – she has many!) is full of great craft ideas. Karen searches for and pins speciality recipes. Others I know use to collect technology related ideas and more.

What I like best is that I can browse pinboards created by other people rather than combing the web myself. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share similar interests.

To sign up for Pinterest, go to www.pinterest.com and select the button “Join Pinterest” at the top of the page.

You can register via Facebook, Twitter, or an e-mail address.

If you are iPad user, you will be glad to one that just one hour ago, Pinterest has finally released an iPad app that offers an even better pinning experience than the regular version. To find out more check out the blog post on Gadgetbox.
