"We are always looking for new ways to help educators, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to get educational resources, creative teaching ideas and inspirational pins to educators who thrive in a community atmosphere like social media," said Social Media Director Kristi Hillyer. "We want educators to find our Pinterest boards entertaining, inspiring and as we say...Pinteresting."
Pinterest is the second most popular social media network used by today's teachers, according to weareteachers.com. The website states 61 percent of teachers use the site, which allows users to create and manage theme-based collections such as events, interests and hobbies. Educators are most likely to use Pinterest for sharing lesson plans and classroom decoration and organization ideas.
