Tip of the Week: My Top 10 Social Studies Pinterest Boards

Yes. I know. There are other social media bookmarking sites out there. There are other bookmarking sites out there that I personally like more. And there may even be other bookmarking sites that are easier to use.

I get that.

But I also know that we shouldn’t ignore Pinterest. There are some incredible resources on the Interwebs that I would have never found without my Pinterest account. For saving bookmarks, I use other tools. But for a quick way to browse lots of sites quickly, it’s hard to beat Pinterest.

if you’re not super familiar with Pinterest, the tool is a pinboard-style website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections called pinboards. These pinboards give users a way to organize all of the websites that they find. Because it’s visual, it’s easy to “see” the saved web sites in these collections. You can browse other users pinboards for sites, follow your favorite pinboards,  “re-pin” those sites to your own pinboard, or like the different sites.

The handy thing is that you don’t have to have an account to view the pinboards of Pinterest users. Obviously you won’t be able to save the stuff you find but if you don’t want to create a free account, just do a “site search” on Google using the following keywords:

site:pinterest.com “your search term”

In practice, it would look like this:

google pinterest search

And if you really don’t want to spend the time doing a Google search, hop onto ten of the boards that I follow:

Have fun!

    The link to World Studies/Geography points to an Economics board. Could you repair?
