Other examples of ways I could use Instagram in my classroom:
Math in the Real World
I can take a mathematical concepts, such as transformations in geometry and have the kids connect it to art through visual representation by having them take pictures of things on campus (or wherever) where they see transformations taking place. Such as repeating windows or doors or columns on the building. Or the kids can take pictures of anything and connect it to math and share their picture(s).
I can have an account for my class and post pictures of the students working and what we are covering in class. This would keep students informed and would be a cool way for students to see what they're doing in a picture. It would also be a great way for parents to be informed and up-to-date.
I can take pictures of homework questions or even some of the answers to the problems so that students can access the Instagram for more support with their homework and help them develop their knowledge of how Instagram can be a tool for more than just social purposes of what they're doing with their friends.
Students can share math jokes that they come across to share with their peers and show that math can be fun!
