As of recent, I am experimenting with Pinterest as a scholarly and educational resource. While I am still analysing the pros and cons, I have started five image collections based on my own research interests, namely medieval ‘science,’ technology, books and games. I will be updating them regularly as I go and I hope not only to expand them, but also to experiment further with Pinterest as a platform and its potential advantages for the collection and presentation of knowledge and the creation of a new one.
Should you have any suggestions as to how to develop this initiative further and how to explore its collaborative side, give me a shout! For the moment, I have just one simple question: do you find it useful if such personal collections of resources otherwise available online are being shared?
You can find my collections here:
And if you are currently writing your PhD, here is the board I created while I was writing mine! On occasion it made me laugh, relax and feel less lonely. I hope it works for you!
