We'll study three types of social tools…that you can use to showcase student work:…social curation sites, blogs, and eportfolios.…Social curation sites like Pinterest or Flickr…allow you to share student work in the form of images.…These images might be images they've taken or produced,…infographics they've made,…or pictures they've taken of physical work products,…such as a science fair project or an art project.…You can post those images to Pinterest or Flickr…or have the students do it.…
