Description

In a foundational consumer behavior in fashion class, using Fowler’s (2013) procedure as a guideline, the project was implemented by first assigning students into groups and were instructed to create a group board on Pinterest, where only their group members and the instructor could view and have access to (a.k.a. a secret board on Pinterest). A Pinterest board, similar to a bulletin board, is a medium where students can create a collage by importing various images from anywhere online. In this project, the purpose of using the Pinterest board was to provide an outlet where students could take concepts covered in the class, and find an image online that related to or further explained the course concepts and topics. The benefit of using this online bulletin board is that students can connect course concepts to industry practices visually and in written form.
