Using Instagram In The Classroom

  • Andrew Novak George Mason University


Location: Dewberry Hall

What I would like to do is print out Instagram photos that students have taken on my class Instagram account. I use the photos on my study abroad programs to Nuremberg, The Hague, and Brussels. I teach international criminal justice, so we visit courtrooms and tribunals, etc. The students have to rotate updating the Instagram account and they have to provide a substantive caption. If there is enough wall space available, I would like to print out maybe 20 photos and captions to hang up as a kind of "photo exhibit." I would also have a sign or poster with my grading rubric and tips for using Instagram.
