I’m still waiting for my invitation to Pinterest (I finally broke down, despite being cautioned by many not to join because it’s such a huge time-sucker), but I found this useful article about how journalists can use the site. One awesome suggestion was:
Use it as an online storyboard. If you’re doing web-based research for an upcoming story, pin useful items to a board dedicated to the topic. If you’re collaborating with another journalist, you can share pinning access by adding a contributor to your board.
I’d love to see how this might work. I’m planning to have EL235 students try it out for project 2 or 3 to see what they think, if we can all get invites in time!
