Description

Eighty-six percent of Millennials participate in use of social media. Pinterest has over 150,000,000 followers. Our college core curriculum requires a class teaching the basics of consumer behavior, sustainability and social responsibility. It is also required by other majors and minors such as Global Stories. In order to engage this diverse group of students, a project using Pinterest was developed. The students were required to search for pins that represented how sustainability could be incorporated into their daily lives and their future professional lives. A statement for each pin, explaining how it was relative and a summary of this information was, also, required for the assignment. Students provided positive feedback on the experience.
