Happy July! On a personal note, I've been so busy in June! First, ISTE was in NOLA and I co-presented remotely about strategies to activate learning in the classroom. I shared about Lumio and Canva Edu - two of my favorite edtech tools to engage students. I also finished my 6-week new teacher virtual workshop series with SimpleK12.
I also have two books in the editing stage. The first is 50 tips for new teachers, and the other is Digital PD for New Teachers. I'm excited to have these titles come out in early fall 2022! To keep up with these books, head to the waitlists:
What is Instagram?
With Instagram, educators, future educators, school districts, and organizations can connect and learn from each other. You can learn from what others share through posts, stories, lives, DMs, reels, and guides. Consider posting something educational three times a week as a teacher.
Post is a picture or graphic with text information.
Stories: These are images or videos that last only 24 hours. They have interactive features like slider bars, quizzes, polls, and questions. It's a fun way to interact with others online.
Live - real-time video sessions hosted by one, two, three, or four people. These live sessions allow you to listen, participate in the conversation, and learn from others. Sometimes people post them in their feed so you can tune in later if you cannot catch them in real-time.
Direct messages (DMs) are private messages sent between two people. You can also create groups of private messages. You can share text, images, emojis, and voice memos in these messages! This is a beautiful way to connect on a more one-to-one basis.
Reels - Share 90-second clips of video. The videos are meant to be quick and impactful. Consider using this resource to share a quick tip, teaching strategy, or teaching tool.
Consider using the big three-bucket method for post ideas on Instagram to keep your feed attractive to other viewers and impactful to you. Think of three big topics that are meaningful to you as a teacher and that you are enthusiastic about.
Instagram announced recently that they are moving towards becoming a video platform. Instagram offers many ways to share video content, from Lives to IG TV, Reels to Stories.
We encourage you to post a video once a week using one of these features on Instagram.
