As someone who takes a lot of pictures, I enjoyed the instagram project a lot. In fact, I think this was my favorite project of the course. I was using instagram for about a year prior to this course, but never considered its educational value. After reading the articles by Caitlyn Tucker, and others, I do believe that I could teach students with instagram. One reason I like it for the educational value is that it provides students a discovery-type education and gives them ownership of their project way more than a worksheet might. Additionally, students are natural and comfortable using instagram. Showing them that they might use it to learn something will rock their world. In my instagram project/storify, I tried to provide an accurate depiction of my life and how my time is spent. I’m at school teaching or learning 75% of the time, grading and lesson planning another 15%, then maybe hanging out with my dog and girlfriend the remainder. This was a nice way to look at other students’ projects and learn about them and their lives. I think I will use this as an icebreaker for my students next semester. I think they’ll really enjoy making the instagram project, and storify is a great way to exhibit their stories.
