Myself (Learning Technologies Adviser), Kim Donovan (Information Adviser) & Clare Millington (Senior Lecturer in BBS) attended day one of the SEDA conference in Brighton this week. We delivered a workshop called ‘Encouraging ownership and collaborative engagement with subject reading using visual bookmarking tool Pinterest. The workshop was born out of a BBS project to discover a book marking technology that would encourage students read beyond their subject and to help them evaluate their readings.

In the workshop we covered

  • Why we used Pinterest
  • An icebreaker Kahoot quiz all about Pinterest (the session was post lunch so we wanted to energise the delegates)
  • Setting up accounts and the basics of using Pinterest
  • A Pinterest pinning challenge, called Cats vs Dogs
  • Examples of how Clare has used it with her students in BBS
  • A discussion about how delegates might use it in their own teaching
