Instagram/Snapchat Learning Activities

Students are all about their photos today. In the past it was all about Facebook until ‘their parents took it over’. Now their favorite means of sharing their life through photos is Snapchat and Instagram. Snapchat erases the photos after eight seconds so that would not be an ideal channel for sharing like Instagram.  I prefer Instagram and wanted to share some ideas for using Instagram and similar social media channels in the classroom.

Selfies – share hobbies and talents with the class especially if students sew or make clothing or apparel of any kind to wear

Recipes – if students are into the culinary arts, students can share their culinary creations via a photo spread

Replicate characters – From historical figures to characters from a novel, have students dress as their character and take pictures to share on Instagram
