Pinterest as a learning tool: Do the two compute? | ZDNet:

Summary: Pinterest: is it just full of cupcakes and pouting girls, or can it be used as a learning tool?
Pinterest, the latest addition to hybrid forms of social networking, hosts a platform where users can ‘pin’ their favourite images to share with the world.
At first glance, such a service may not seem to have much academic value — but teachers around the world are utilizing Pinterest to make lessons more interactive. Not only can it be used to share ideas and lesson resources, but the notice-board styled platform allows for better organisation of ideas and images than other sites generally support, such as Facebook or Twitter.
