Presenter for the Following Session
- Learning, Collaboration, and Community Building with Pinterest
Use of social media in higher education is growing and one of the newer trends within higher education is what is known as online pinboards. Pinterest and educlipper are two examples of the many sites available that allow educators to incorporate pinboard-style, social photo sharing into their curriculum as well as enable administrators to further expand the colleges’ online community. A few colleges in the United States have their own Pinterest pages, including Drake University, Marquette University, Duke University, Seattle University, and the University of Hawai‘i.
