I'd like to try an assignment that uses Pinterest in my partially online class (35 students, undergraduate). Basically, I'd assign students to find visual representations of an assigned topic--we would discuss their findings during a f2f meeting, plus I would grade them. I'd like students to have the option of working individually or with a group.
Do any of you have advice on how to incorporate Pinterest into an assignment? I feel pretty good about the "assemble visual images" part of the assignment, it's the "using Pinterest" part I'm not sure of, since I myself haven't used Pinterest before. For example, should I require students to make their own accounts, or should I make one account and let them all login to it? What would be the least hassle?
OR--is there a Canvas equivalent that could enable me to skip Pinterest altogether? Has anyone assigned students to compile visual images in Pages, for example?
