According to their website, "Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests."

I would add that educators are embracing the power of Pinterest to organize their learning spaces, curate content, find great lesson planning resources, discover how other are using tech tools to enhance learning, and finding inspiration from fellow educators.

The secret to being able to use Pinterest easily is to download the 'pin it button' on all the devices you will be using--mobile and/or desktop and across all browsers. Check out the video below for a getting started Pinterest tutorial.
