Identify the strengths of this teaching resource

Pinterest allow teachers to gather and share ideas online and can collaborate with people of the same interest. In this teaching resource educators can create multiple pin boards. This allows them to create a pin board for each subject, which will assist the teachers in creating lesson plans. Pinterest search tool allows the user to connect with people of similar interest (teachers) through this program (DeNeen, 2015). This allows educators to connect and collaborate globally.

As there is so much information and resources on pinterest it has potential to become overcrowded and disorganised. Pinning resources on the board to evaluate later can cause overboard of useless or irrelevant information.

Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource

Using with teacher supervision I can see pinterest as a resource for students to gather ideas on projects, DIYs, classroom decorations, creative ideas and research.
