Summarizing is a difficult task for many students. Social media is a platform that has students practicing this concept without them even realizing it. Why not bring a version of this into your classroom? Students of any age can be creating Infograms, an Instagram parody, using this PowerPoint template.
The template allows you to create a handle and change your location. You can also change your profile picture and main image. Finally, write up you summary in the body of your post.
To guide you and your students through the process, download and print out this task card.
Ideas for implementation:
- Summarize an event or story
- Define a vocabulary term
- Provide an overview of a process
- Collect all the student projects to create a study guide or a digital reflection on what you have learned
- Print them out to create an interesting social media visual
Download the PowerPoint template above to get started. Don’t forget about the task card that will walk your students through completion of the project.
