Here is a short YouTube video about Pearltrees.
I love social bookmarking and have accounts for several different sites including: Delicious, Diigo, Pinterest, Livebinders, Twitter, Google Reader and a few others.
Because I really don't wish to join yet another social bookmarking site, I chose not to join Pearltrees (yet). However, I am still using Pearltrees to find resources for the classroom. I have found that searching a topic on Pearltrees can offer some useful results.

Social bookmarking is very powerful. See if you can follow how my social bookmarking accounts helped me to find some iPad resources.
I was browsing my Google Reader in which I follow a curator, John Evans, who has an account on Scoop.it. I then opened John's topic called iPads in Education on Scoop.it. John Evans shared a Pearltrees collection of iPad resources that was put together by mcquirpp. I then opened the link to Pearltrees to find a huge collection of iPad resources on Pearltrees.
Talk about socially connected! The people that I follow in all of my social bookmarking accounts are called my PLN (Personal Learning Network), and I am extremely thankful for all that they share with us each and every day!
I highly recommend using Pearltrees to find resources for education.
