Favorites of Pinterest, of course.
By far, my favorite was not a pin, but just seeing that YA author Cheryl Rainfield was following several of my boards.
I dont' spend a lot of time scrolling through Pinterest boards looking through stuff to repin. More typically, I find something via blog reading or Twitter that matches the boards I have constructed.
A few of this weeks faves:
- I love this unbalanced study space. I could see middle schoolers really loving the goofiness of it, like something out Alice in Wonderland.
- My "Books Reimagined" board is the most fun to work on. This afternoon, I was talking to one of the students in the high school media center about it and she showed me this butterfly pin (and a couple others) on her board. Pinterest is so HOT among female high school students. I see it everywhere. I definitely plan to have some sort of Pinterest contest during Teen Tech Week!
- I also collect infographics, so an infographic on internet addiction is the perfect metaphor.
I have also been following tech discussions on the Pinterest phenomena in general and the service's relationship to copyright specifically, as in this article: "The genius of Pinterest's copyright dodge".
Kelly, Thanks for creating "this just pinned..." Love it.
