Snapchat got a pretty bad rap over the past few years, but did you know that you actually can use this video messaging app in ways that really do help students see the applications of what their teachers are learning in their everyday lives. In this episode I share my experiences using Snapchat with my psychology class. Yes it has it’s limitations, but it also has some strengths that I think are worth looking at. Join me as I explore snapchat and give you samples of “snaps” I sent my students.
