Instagram

What is Instagram??
Instagram is a social networking app made for sharing photos and videos from a smartphone. Similar to Facebook or Twitter, everyone who creates an account has a profile and a news feed.When you post a photo or video on Instagram, it will be displayed on your profile. Other users who follow you will see your posts in their own feed. Likewise, you’ll see posts from other users who you choose to follow.

How can we use Instagram in teaching and learning??
Set-up a class account that you can make private for parents and students. You can post their class work, homework, assignments, important announcements, images from their games/ events/ ceremonies, and more. Besides that, for learning, there are many accounts that enables us to improve our vocabulary, grammar, learn about idioms. etc etc..Just type #english and check out the many many accounts that you can view! Happy Exploring! 🙂
