I'm using Pinterest as part of most units I teach to help student find and evaluate information as they practice digital citizenship. For example, after the unit on Legal Issues for Teen Parents the students searched for an image about paying child
support. Next, they completed the Pinterest Interest form and then pinned the image to our classroom board with a comment about the Pin.
The entire class can interact by viewing their peer's pins, then "like" or repin and comment too!
