    This evaluation found that Pinterest was a popular and useful tool for developing curated multimedia resources to support students' learning.          Explores the potential for critical thinking through utilization of this and similar social media devices when utilized for academic use.

  2. Naidu, M. (2014). Engaged pedagogy and performative teaching: Examples from teaching practice. International Journal of Educational Sciences, 6(3), 459-468.

    Effective and engaged teaching practices are those that recognise the importance of making real world connections between the subject material taught, and the students' experiences, through engaged' teaching and working to encourage the student to become reflexive and critical thinking societal participants. By drawing on experiences of teaching a large first year university Anthropology class (>550) and a smaller third year Anthropology class (<90), the paper argues that one can use 'performative teaching' and performance teaching as a praxis of 'engaged pedagogy'.
