Are you a fan of GIFs? Have you ever thought of using them in the classroom? GIFs are animated looping images often seen on social media sites, but they can also be useful tools in the classroom. GIFs are rapidly becoming a major medium of communication that requires visual, digital, and social skills to create, share, and understand. In this workshop, we will explore why and how GIFs can be used in the classroom including instructional guides, slide design, composition lessons, and digital literacy discussions. We will also look at free and easy tools for GIF creation and discuss issues of diversity and inclusion in GIF culture and how that can inform how we create, teach, and share GIFs.
