National Teacher Day on Instagram
Happy National Teacher Day!
Teachers are tasked with the difficult challenge of engaging and inspiring future generations. We’re excited to see so many teachers among those pushing the Instagram envelope and finding creative and innovative ways of bringing Instagram into the classroom.
Educators are at the forefront of highlighting the rich and unique aspects of the global Instagram community, from using Instagram photos to inspire creative writing, to employing Photo Maps for geography lessons, to encouraging students to undertake ethnographic studies of their neighborhood.
Take a moment today to reflect on an educator that has had a meaningful impact on your life and share your story with the #greatteaching hashtag.
Instagrammers Capture “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse
The first annular solar eclipse of 2013 took place yesterday. The passage of the moon directly in front of the sun made it appear as though there were a “ring of fire” in the sky.
Instagrammers from Australia and the islands of the Southern Pacific Ocean—the only places where the eclipse was visible—shared photos of this spectacular sight.
This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPmotherlylove
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
The goal this weekend is to document what motherly love means to you. Some ideas to get you started: If you’ll be spending time with your mom for Mother’s Day be sure to take a portrait of her and share a favorite moment in the caption; if you are a mom, take a photo of yourself with your kids, either in a warm embrace holding hands or sharing a favorite activity; or feel free to get creative when trying to capture what motherly love means to you!
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag #WHPmotherlylove to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
