The website is called, and it is a visual buffet of anything and everything that might interest you. They describe themselves as an online pinboard, where users can “pin” pictures that interest them. One of the first things that I pinned was a picture from the website Free Technology for Teachers ( written by Richard Byrne. It was immediately “liked” and “shared” by numerous people, and it was exciting to see information about this amazing resource spread like wildfire. I also saw project ideas for classrooms, inspirational sayings, recipes, outfits… You name it! The information sharing at is powerful, but watch out–so is the fun! 🙂

    Education…what a great use for Pinterest!
