Quick Guide to Instagram 

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use Instagram for teaching, training, learning and development.

Instagram is very much a personal tool for individuals to build a network and share own photos and stories.

Instagram is not just for selfies anymore, it can also be used more mindfully by filling your stream with nuggets of bite-sized learning you can “snack on” while you’re on-the-go.  And I’m not just talking about inspirational quotes! What I’m talking about is useful knowledge that you can use in conversations and to help inspire your curiosity.

In the workplace: Instagram is also is finding its place

In education: Instagram also is being used here
