Instagram in Education
Part of this post also appeared on Free Technology for Teachers.Â
Last month when Instagram became available for Android devices, Android users everywhere, myself included, clamored to install it right away. Instagram provides a platform for adding nice effects to the images you capture on your phone and sharing them with your friends on Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Tumblr. Earlier this week I drafted a post about Â about using Instagram to have students post short photo essays to Tumblr. I scrapped the post because I wasn’t sure if that was really a viable option. As it turns out, I should have run with that post.
In the latest episode of The Infinite Thinking Machine they include a short story about a teacher having her students use Instagram to crafting short photo essays. Learn more about it in the episode of The Infinite Thinking Machine embedded below.
