Instagram Exit Slip
This can be used at the end of any Computer Applications class and can be adapted for lab, laptop cart, or home use.
- Students work on About Apps activity in Computer Applications class. This checks their basic computer skills and shows how to complete many common tasks in Computer Applications class.
- Teacher shares Exitgram via Google Drive while students work.
- With fifteen minutes remaining in class, teacher demonstrates entire process of creating an Exitgram:
*Read question on the board
*Find relevant image or correct answer on computer (synthesizing)
*Grab image Snipping Tool (or other screenshot application) (disciplined)
*Insert image in Exitgram file and resize accordingly
*Credit photographer or source website if necessary (ethical)
*Add a caption with at least 3 relevant hashtags (creating)
*Tag any related names (inventor of technology, teacher, friend who helped complete work - these can also just be for fun) (respectful)
*"Post" Exitgram by sharing with teacher and any "tagged" students.
- Students spend remaining class time composing their own Exitgram.
- Teacher views and "replies" to Exitgrams prior to next class. Feedback varies depending on student's level of understanding.
