This week’s activity is a little bit difficult for me because I am not familiar with snapchat at all. Thinking of an activity the class could use was hard too because snapchat isn’t a picture or video that lasts forever, it is gone in a matter of seconds. I only had one idea for the activity, but it is more like an idea for a fun game.
The game I was thinking of could be sort of a form of story telling, one person could start with one word and everyone else could add to it by saying a word after. In a matter of seconds it could be one big funny sentence/ video. This could go to show that no matter who you are or where you are, you are all connected by a form of social media.
Not only would this game be funny, but it would create a sense of belonging and community over something as simple as an iPhone app. I think that snapchat is a bit difficult to understand at first, so I think this activity should definitely be 2 weeks instead of one so that everyone could get the hang of it. I also think that the order of who says the next word shouldn’t matter because people could just jump in and say something funny or random at any moment. Lastly, the word you say should be posted on your snapchat story instead of just to one person. This would allow for everyone to see and jump in on it at any time.
