What is Vine?

Vine is a mobile app owned by Twitter that enables its users to create and post short looping video clips. Video clips created with Vine have a maximum clip length of six seconds and can be shared to Vine’s social network, or to other services such as Twitter and Facebook. Vine enables users to record short video clips, up to six seconds long while recording, through its in-app camera. The camera records only while the screen is being touched, enabling users to edit on the fly or create stop motion effects.


Some of the ways I’ve used Vine

Share what your students are learning and experiencing in class                       

Students enjoying activities using fun equipment like the Omnikin ball

Highlight the experiences students have during field trips

Demonstrate my students using an iPad to learn skeletal bones

How we set-up our archery unit

Gr 8’s using the app Ubersense to analyze basketball form shooting

Students using glogster and comic life to create substance use and abuse information posters

Students using website to learn about binge drinking and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

Students writing their quiz online using

Learning the names and locations of muscles using BBC website



Hashtags can be used on vine to group together similar vines. A great hashtag for science teachers is #6secscience. It is a collection of educators and students demonstrating science experiments.
