Pinterest - Creating CES Outreach in New Ways

Pinterest is a popular social media site where users “pin” their favorite things to virtual bulletin boards. Pins can be pictures, ideas, text, or links. Pinners can share with each other by following bulletin boards, repinning, and commenting. What is the potential to utilize this tool for outreach and education? What role can CES play as curators of information on Pinterest? This 101 course will teach you the basics of Pinterest, and how to set up and create an educational experience for your traditional AND non-traditional client. Pinterest offers opportunities to highlight your programs and information, and create places where CES shares. Hands on.

Learning before the conference (or are unable to attend)? We presented an earlier online webinar with some of the ideas/resources we will be training on at the conference. "Pinterest for CoPs, County Agents, Specialists, and Outreach Educators" -
