Pinterest in Education?

I've been using Pinterest since it first began issuing invitations 
and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
I'm a visual learner & an OCD organizational freak 
so it's perfect for someone like me! 
When they came out with the app I was in heaven! 
Those nights when I can't sleep, I just pin away! 

I first started using Pinterest for personal things- 
pinning recipes and craft projects and home ideas
but quickly realized that it would be a fabulous way to
organize and store school related ideas!

From content area boards to classroom management ideas
 to bulletin board ideas to apps for students and teachers- 
there are literally millions of fabulous ideas for teachers!

I believe Pinterest is an extremely valuable tool for educators- when used correctly. 
I've read some blogs lately that share concerns over educators using Pinterest- 
and even stories of school districts who have completely blocked it in their schools!
{Can you imagine? EEK!}

I've been doing a lot of research and reading and thinking and talking 
about Pinterest in Education and would love to hear your thoughts.
Would you come on over and take a Pinterest Survey for me?
