Teaching Tip Tuesday - Parent's Guide to Instagram

Making sure our students (and if you are a parent- our children) use social media responsibly is imperative. 
Luckily there are resources out there that can help begin that discussion in class or at home. Instagram has released a Parent's Guide to Instagram online and downloadable PDF format. 
The online version includes discussion questions and a glossary of terms that can be used in class, as well as interactive modules that cover areas such as how to adjust privacy settings, manage comments, block users, and even monitor how much time the app is being used.  
Don't be fooled by the title either!  Many PRE-teen students are using Instagram as well.  Let's make sure students learn how to use Instagram and other forms of social media safely and correctly.
