Every student wants to feel like a very important person, but the opportunities to become a classroom VIP often disappear once students leave the early primary grades. And why is that? It is such a fantastic opportunity for students to feel special and show leadership. So, @SarahGauvin and I have found a way to bring back the VIP system for older students, while also using technology in a transformative way. Here is a video of us explaining a project that uses Instagram and Twitter to empower students to become digital leaders!
The best thing about this system? It can be adapted for a range of grades and subject focuses. Although we have designed it to focus on the BC grade 5 curriculum, there are endless possibilities on how it could be used in your classroom. These are just some of the ideas we chose to focus on, but we would love to hear from you in the comments section how you envision using it in your classroom.
Below you can find all the resources you need to get started with your VIP system harnessing the power of social media:
