Using Snapchat in Education

Using Snapchat in Education

I was spending time some 1 to 1 with my son on the weekenbucsnfl-snapcoded and saw him using Snapchat. I asked him what he was putting on Snapchat and he said he was build his story for the day. I complimented him on doing that and encouraged him to make good choices on the content he was putting online (in a “hidden veggies in your food” way).

I kept thinking of this idea that kids are “documenting” their days in the way that we may have written things in a diary. And I started wondering if there is a place in the classroom for this app.

I have found a few articles that show how this is being used already and hopefully can inspire you to try it in your classroom.

I’m really excited about this opportunity that educators from Primary to Tertiary have with this app.
