In the world of social media, Facebook is "old news". Most of our students are now on Instagram. Instagram is a fun way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures. It's all about staying connected through photos. You can take a picture with your mobile phone, then choose from various filters to transform the image into a photographic masterpiece. This session will review the basics of Instagram, set up accounts, learn privacy settings, and explore ways to monitor student's use of Instagram.
