The advancement of Web 2.0 tools has created multiple avenues in which nursing students can search for and share information. Nursing faculty should consider using these advancements to create teaching-learning activities that engage students. The authors discuss the use of Pinterest, a visual social bookmarking site that was used to promote active and engaged learning in a course designed to prepare future nursing educators who, as faculty, will feel comfortable embracing this technology. Steps that faculty can take in planning, implementing, and evaluating Pinterest activities as well as lessons learned and suggestions for other use of Pinterest are discussed.
