What is Pinterest?

Pinterest has quickly become one of the most popular ways for people to share their hobbies and interests. Teachers and students use it to share and find resources for learning and teaching. On Pinterest, you can build boards (pages) and pin websites, pictures, texts, and graphics onto your boards. You can also view boards created by other pinners and put their pins on your boards.

Pinterest accounts are free and easy to use. If you do not have a Pinterest account, you can sign up here: www.pinterest.com. You can even sign up using your Facebook account.

Once you become a user, you can find your favorite boards and "follow" them. When you follow board or user, you will see all of their new pins on your main page.
