Carolle Boudreau, E-Learning Specialist for Brockville and Cornwall, was kind enough to pass on information about a project she did with the students in her Introduction to Nutrition class this semester that included Pinterest. As you may recall, Spark wrote a blog post about how to use Pinterest in the classroom back in September. If you missed the post, you can find it here: http://sparkslc.ca/pinit/.
Carolle asked her students to create a Nutrition Board using information they were able to find on Pinterest. As Carolle admits, not everything on Pinterest is of educational value, but the assignment required students to find information that is useful in terms of better understanding health and nutrition.
