Would You Like to Use Pinterest in Catechetics?

Pinterest-MarlowWhen I first heard about Pinterest, I was not sure how it could be used in Catechetics.  Then I met Cyndi Rusk Marlow, Coordinator of Formation, at St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish in Bardstown, Kentucky.  I’m so glad that Cyndi volunteered to do a “Show ‘N Tell” webinar for INTERACTIVE CONNECTIONS. Here is her Pinterest website.

For those who were able to attend the webinar, thank you for joining us.  If you were unable to join us, here you will find her PowerPoint presentation –

As I learn more about Pinterest, I see that it is a way to curate websites that you would like to share with others.  I use DELICIOUS , a social bookmarking website, to collect the links I want to refer back to or share with others. However, if you compare the two options, you will note that Pinterest is very visual and Delicious is plain and simple.

So, Pinterest is another way to bookmark your links to share with others.  Which one would I recommend?  Both!  Why?  If you know your audience is inspired by visual content, then use Pinterest!  If you know your audience is primarily looking for information that is in ONE place and it makes little or no difference if it has a visual appeal, then use a tool like DELICIOUS.

In general, what is important, is that you choose a tool that your audience likes, prefers, and will use.

If you are using Pinterest, I would like to hear from you how you are using Pinterest.  Come and share your stories here.
