Pearltrees is a nice tool for visually organizing pictures, links, and videos that you find on the web. Pearltrees are webs of the links, images, and videos that you find and organize. You can arrange and re-arrange your webs in as many ways and as many times as you like. I previously wrote about the web version of Pearltrees last November. Today, I received an email from Pearltrees announcing their new iPhone app.
The Pearltrees iPhone app is a free app that allows you to organize your links, images, and videos just as you would on the web version of Pearltrees. I don't have an iPhone, but I do have an iPad that I tried used Pearltrees on. The Pearltrees iPhone app appears to function the same way as the iPad app.
Applications for Education
Whether they use it on the web or use the iOS apps, Pearltrees can be a good tool for students to use to visually organize their findings around a topic. The iOS apps for Pearltrees takes that same visual organization element and puts it on a touch screen device.
