Education + Technology + Pinterest

By now, everyone has heard of Pinterest - but not everyone may be using it. Turns out, Pinterest is a great resource for finding education technology sources all in one place. Check out this compilation from Edudemic of "The 20 Best Pinterest Boards About Education Technology." This is the perfect starting point to delve into Pinterest - it may even inspire you to start your own Pinterest board that you can share with clients!

  1. Patricia Brown: Patricia showcases a myriad of videos, articles, tutorials, and lots of other resources all about education technology.
  2. Vicki Davis: We love Vicki! The ‘cool cat teacher’ is a rock-star on the blogs but also maintains a wonderful collection of curated resources for anyone looking to enhance their classroom or life.
  3. TeacherVision: A ‘family education network,’ TeacherVision assembles a solid list of resources that are valuable for parents, students, and teachers alike.
  4. Kathy Schrock: Kathy (big fan!) is a big name in edtech. Like Vicki Davis, she’s a wonderful blogger and Pinterest user. She curates helpful tools and supportive information for, in particular, developing top-notch presentations.

  15. Education World: Ed world focuses on science and and how it connects with education. In other words, it’s great for any science teacher or student. There are plenty of non-science resources too though!
  16. Shannon Smith: A useful list of resources that is a useful tool for teachers and non-teachers. Focuses on infographics but also lesson plans worth knowing about. Great compilation Shannon!
  17. K S: This board has a focus on Canada thanks to the author (a curriculum consultant) being from there. The pinboard helps promote digital literacy and education technology thanks to many videos and resources.
  18. Debbie Fucoloro: Great for beginners (in edtech), this set of pinboards are useful guides for any teacher looking to amp up their technology!
