Professional Development with Pinterest

Whoever said professional development can’t look fabulous?  Pintrest allows educators to sort through pins that are tagged with keywords relating to their desired topic, essentially cutting down the search time for new ideas. Users with exceptional taste may be followed by other users. Commenting on a pin helps to clarify its usage and contribute ideas, suggestions and pinions. Users may create boards for whatever accommodates their personal needs, yet their pins will remain searchable through keywords related to education. This means that educators who use Pinterest entirely for their own professional interests will still be contributing value to the professional development of others, unless they opt to keep their pins private.

We will ask you to make a Pinterest account a little later, but just to get acquainted with the site go to this page and browse around. Consider Pinterest as a way of organizing the vast amount of information you found to be available with Google+, and keep it in mind as you imagine what to do with the plethora of links that will be posted on your Twitter feed later on.

When Pinterest pins a website to a board, it makes a new copy of the image to accommodate the site’s unique design parameters. This is technically an infringement of copyright. A debate has ensued as to whether the re-sized thumbnails constitute “fair use”, as these images are linked to the original source and not accredited to Pinterest or its users. Responsibility for this copyright technicality, however, is passed to the user in the fine print of the Terms of Service. For this reason the social media platform has received some moderate speculation and the odd case of boycotting. While users should be aware of any legal risks involved in what seems like harmless resource sharing,  Pinterest’s terms of service does not differ greatly from that of other media sharing sites, such as YouTube (Sims, 2012).
