Pinterest is a free image-based curation site that allows users to create themed “boards” onto which they may “pin” relevant links that appear as tiles. Board creators and viewers alike may comment on the pins.
Pinterest can relate to education, as well. The boards can become an informal, virtual discussion platform where everyone has an opportunity to contribute.
