Abstract

Social media continues to grow as a part of everyday life, including for professional and personal applications. This is especially true as educators seek relevant ideas for how to engage students with meaningful content. The use of Pinterest is particularly prevalent among the educator audience. The current study seeks to examine how PreK-8th-grade educators engage with Pinterest to locate, be inspired by, use, and share resources related to education for sustainability. We will create a taxonomy of sustainability education resources to determine how and what types of resources are shared through Pinterest. By communicating their use patterns, we hope to provide insights on not only the types of resources themselves, but how teachers use Pinterest to share lesson ideas, activities, and resources.
