Educational uses of Instagram

ablairzis is such a natural teacher. He is relaxed, happy, confident. He is enjoying sharing what he knows with us and he is delighted when he talks about the learning breakthroughs he can witness when he uses Instagram with his students. He has them involved in learning and they are participating in their learning. The DECD Social Media guidelines for South Australia are comprehensive and well thought out. Any social media activity needs to follow local policy guidelines. It is also important to let parents know you plan to use social media and how that fits in with criteria for learning, performance management and curriculum guidelines. We also have a DECD Cybersafety policy in South Australia. If you do not identify the school and you use images of ideas and work rather than people then Instagram could be very handy in a classroom and beyond because it has images and then comments and , from my experience, seems to be a stable platform which encourages creativity and supportive groups.

So what could Instagram be used for?

It is important to start small so it is manageable. It is important to keep people informed. It is important that students are protected online and you have thought that out. Discussing your ideas with others is valuable and worthwhile. You then can work on user experience with real students and get their feedback to improve what you are doing. One point ablairzis makes is that it is a really positive use of smartphones. As teachers we need to always be teaching responsible use and creating opportunities to use the benefits of technology.
