Connecting with students is important; what better way than bringing in social media to your lessons? Each product is versatile to the subject you teach, and the content you want to get across. What job does your student want in the future? (LinkedIn) Want your students to draw up a storyboard for a short video? (Vine) What about analyze a character in a novel? (Facebook) Brainstorm a topic? (Pinterest) Talk about a news story? (imgur) … Snapshot of history? (Instagram) Discuss the viewpoints of stakeholders? (Reddit). Conversation between important historians? (Skype). Broadcast of an event from the eyes of someone else? (Periscope) Write a review of a business, like a restaurant? (Yelp) Or maybe even ask and answer a question? (Tumblr)
Some of these adaptations use replacement names of the social media site in a font that students will recognise (for instance, Fakebook instead of Facebook and Instasnap instead of Instagram).
