Over 500,000 education-related pins are saved to Pinterest every day. That number is expected to grow with the launch of Teachers on Pinterest — a collaborative effort between Pinterest, education experts such as Edutopia, and a collection of teacher bloggers. The platform’s creation of their own education-focused Pinterest community demonstrates the value and power of using this tool in the classroom.
Recognizing that power, we’ve teamed up with noted author and education expert Leah Anne Levy to create The Guide to Pinterest for Educators — a handbook designed with today’s digitally literate educators in mind. This handbook provides teachers and administrators with the tools needed to not only navigate Pinterest, but also to use the social platform as a powerful learning tool for both teachers and students.
