Everyone has got to have heard of or be familiar with Instagram and Vine by now, but if you’re not, here’s a quick update. Instagram is just another form of social media, but it is all photographs and videos. Vine is the same, but it is all videos that are about 6 seconds long and constantly loop. Don’t feel bad if you don’t know about Vine, I only know what it is because of my 18 year old little sister. She loves it, I on the other hand prefer instagram.
Here are a few of my instagram photos and videos:
(If you would like to follow me, my username is Stephanie12xD, same on Vine.)
And a few Vine videos:

This one is mine:
I would use these in my class by having students take pictures/make videos of books they are reading with small book reports, or even use them to have students make mini book trailers for books. You could even use Vine to make memes about returning books or library rules. That would be clever! You could even make your own hashtags so that students could look up things related to your class/library without having to go through all of their friends’ profiles. (ex.: #mancrushmonday, #teachercrushtuesday, #womancrushwednesday, #throwbackthursday, and #flexfriday, or #realtalk.)
How would you use them?
