When I found out we had to create a Pinterest or Tumblr board, I was like ‘YES!!!’ as I use Pinterest on a weekly basis. I absolutely love it. It is a great platform to collect useful resources or websites that help me with my teaching as well as the latest fashions or food recipes. I simply Pin It or Like and refer to it again and again. Tumblr on the other hand is unfamiliar territory for me. I have honestly never used it or even looked at it. This will have to be something I may need to have a look at, especially if it is similar to platforms like Pinterest.
A part of this weeks activity was not only creating a new board but creating it to suit ‘young people’ or what they are interested in. I used suggestions from my class in the previous activity as well as popular texts that have been popping up lately in the news or discussions that I have either been a part of or heard.
My Popular Culture board is a work in progress with approximately 30 Pins in it. As time goes on I will add to it, so that I am up to date with what is popular. I’m sure this won’t be too hard considering I work with young people and have a child myself.
