I use Pinterest daily. However, in the vast majority of schools, it is never going to make it past Internet content filters for students.
eduClipper is basically a Pinterest for schools (and I confirmed today that it is not blocked at our school — if it’s not blocked by our district, it’s unlikely to be blocked by most others).
It has the potential of sort of being an “all in one” tool for the classroom, serving the same purposes as sites on The Best Social Bookmarking Applications For English Language Learners & Other Students list and on The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”) list, as well as serving other functions.
The advantage of that kind kind of versatility is that students only have to learn one site. The potential drawback is that sometimes this kind of versatility results in a site being overly-complex.
I’m going to have students experiment with it in the last few days of the school year and see how it works.
