Why, and how, schools should be using Instagram - Daily Genius

Why, and how, schools should be using Instagram - Daily Genius | Student Support | Scoop.it
Instagram is huge. As in 300 million users huge. As in, your students, and probably their parents, are on it. Already, 30 billion photos have been shared on the platform. There’s a lot going on there.

There’s a certain amount of leading-the-witness in the question, but sheer scale doesn’t necessarily mean there is educational value. Unless you use it right, of course.

So how, and why should you be using Instagram in your school? Here’s some suggestions:

Apple has released iOS 8.3, it's biggest update yet to iOS 8 that was first launched alongside the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in September 2014.

We've worked our way through the phone operating system to try and bring you as many of the features as possible to allow you to get as much out of the latest software on your phone without having to upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Most of these tips are new to iOS 8, but we've also included some gems from iOS 7 that you might not have found yet. We'll be keeping an eye on things as new updates roll out and if you've got any tips of your own that we've not covered please feel free to add them to the comments below.

Schools continue to look for cheaper access to better tech- well, I think this is a step in the right direction.  Administrators have a lot of choices, when deciding what to buy into.  We should definitely look into the possibilities of using productive and efficient technology, and possibly reallocating funds to place where they can do more good.
