My Take

Instagram can be used to communicate with students, parents, and community members. Users can make their accounts private. However, students who have anonymous accounts end up trolling on Instagram and bullying users. Plus, student safety is questionable on the site.

How I Use It

Civics Teachers can use Instagram to encourage students to discuss current events.

Teachers, schools, and school districts can use Instagram to post videos and pictures of things that are happening in classes, buildings, and around the district.
