Abstract

This paper presents emergent findings from an in-progress study on educators’ uses of Pinterest, a popular website and mobile app. The study is exploring how educators and educational organizations utilize Pinterest. Quantitative and qualitative data are being gathered and analyzed in order to describe patterns in use, and lay the groundwork for further research. In our sample, individual educators appeared to be more active Pinterest users than educational organizations during the data collection window. Some educators used Pinterest to promote educational resources they had created and offered for sale via sites such as TeachersPayTeachers.com. We discuss some of the apparent opportunities and challenges associated with educators’ professional uses of Pinterest.
