Many teachers have discovered numerous ways to use Pinterest with their students. So what exactly is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a place to organize and share online images that you find interesting or inspiring. Once uploaded or shared on Pinterest, these images become known as Pins, which the user can place on customized, themed Boards. You can create Boards for any topic imaginable, and creative uses are only limited by one's imagination!
If you want to check out Pinterest, though, you have to be invited. You can sign up for invites on the site , or chances are you already know a Pinner who will gladly send you an invite.
