Selfie Center Summer Institute 2015

Reflection in Reading, Writing, and Content

Find Out How to Integrate Technology into Your Literacy and Content Areas


noun \ˈsel-fē\ a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. They are usually flattering and made to appear casual. Most selfies are taken with a camera held at arm's length or pointed at a mirror, rather than by using a self-timer.
