I’ve only used Instagram sparingly – primarily for vocabulary videos for my English Language Learner students (see The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram) and some Theory of Knowledge class clips.

Tonight’s PBS New Hour segment on Instagram (see video embedded below) really opened my eyes, though, on its enormous reach.

I began to search for recent posts on how teachers are using Instagram, and found a couple that looked recent and informative – 8 INSTAGRAM HACKS FOR TEACHERS from Education To The Core and 7 Ways Innovative Teachers Use Instagram from MashupMath.

I’d love to hear from others who are using it, and I’ll publish responses in a follow-up post.
