It’s like Pinterest, but it goes a step beyond, because you have that collaboration and a way to connect with people.
Isn’t it sad when the only way for teachers to make a fair wage is by selling themselves and their work on Instagram.

    I think of instagram as a nice silo for sharing and liking photos in a casual way (I like being liked too). It went bad when it removed the ‘time’ from the timeline. (I don’t like its lack of interoperability much either).
    I don’t think I follow any influencers so this is a world outside my ken.
    The idea of using instagram as a way of showing a shiny classroom has some of the same problems at tweeting to my mind. Not that my blogging is a great example of sharing classroom practise.
    I am not sure about the Teachers Pay Teachers, concept. I feel a slight distaste, but am not sure why.
