Have you signed up to be a part of the #studentlife challenge on February 5th? If not, why not? This simple global collaboration is all about having students take pictures throughout the day and then share them using the hashtag #studentlife. So far more than 30 different schools in 6 different countries are taking part.
On February 5th, I invite students across the world to share pictures from their regular day using the hashtag #studentlife. Students (or teachers if students are too young) can use Twitter, Instagram, or whatever social network site they choose to share these slices of their life. What I hope for is a wide variety of images with or without commentary that will allow us educators to see what happens in our students’ days, not just what we think happens. If you feel like it, you can also have students do this before February 5th and compile their answers into something that can be shared. This is what I will do using our blogs.
How can you participate?
Share this challenge with your students and invite them to join, remind them to use the hashtag #studentlife.
Add your information in the form below or in a comment so that I can share your students’ slices with the rest of the world.
Tune in on February 5th through Twitter or Instagram to hopefully see what our students’ days look like.
Help me spread the word on this please, I think it could be really powerful for all of us to see what students really go through in a day in our schools.
If you have signed up, please fill out the form with your email address so I can send you the details!
