Alright class, today we are going to create a social media post that summarizes Louis Riel and the Red River Rebellion.
I like using video, can I make a Tik Tok of the main events?
I like to write, can I pretend to be different key people having a discussion over Twitter?
I like images, can I make a series of pictures for Instagram?
Sounds great, I love all the different uses of Social Media!
Can we add you on our social media and share our finished assignment that way?
Nope, when you are done I want the finished product sent to me by email in a video, image, or written document.
Can we post it to our own social media when it's done?
Off they went, students were excited to mix history with their social media! Although, the teacher had to keep a keen eye out for those who were scrolling through their social media and watching cat videos for "inspiration".
I think that's great! But remember other peoples' privacy. If someone shows up in your image or video, get their permission before posting.
