Instagram and Vine

I always take photos of students and activities throughout the school year so I can share them with students and parents, but using Instagram and Vine is a great classroom tool for the students as well.

Take a look at a few Instagram examples of how I want to use it in the classroom.

Here are a few quick examples of how I want to use Vine in the classroom.
Create a word family video.

Create a rhyming word sort video.

Illustrate a unit of study or process.

There are so many ways to use Instagram and Vine in the classroom.  They are both quick and easy tools to showcase what students are doing and for them to show what they know...and it's fun!
