Recently, Milady asked a group of students what tools they had been using to study with during the past few weeks. One of the tools listed by multiple students was Pinterest. Honestly, this surprised me.
You see, for me, Pinterest is where I go for DIY Ideas from arts and crafts to party planning to design ideas for my house. Curious about this, I asked Monica, a Milady co-worker and a Millennial, about it and she absolutely agreed! She said she gets all of her haircolor ideas from Pinterest, searching topics like “Cool Blondes” or “Fun Hair Ideas”.
I was still a bit hesitant so I decided to check it out for myself and guess what…Pinterest is a great resource for today’s students. Here are just a few ideas on how a student could use Pinterest as an educational tool.
So, is Pinterest a valuable resource or an excuse to use a cell phone? I’m going to go with valuable resource.
This idea has stretched me outside of my comfort zone, are you willing to join me and give it a try?
