Using Social Media To Make Learning Competitive.

My colleague recently shared with me how he used social media, in an innovative way, in the classroom.


The lesson was secondary chemistry and the students were challenged to make infographics using the website Piktochart (click here for my tutorial).


To motivate the students, they were told that their finished products would be shared on social media and the winner would be the one with the most hits / likes / shares.

The students loved the idea and produced some really high quality work.


Look below at some of the BRILLIANT pieces:
