A Student approach to using Educational Memes as an outlet to enhance learning.
Keywords:Social media for learning, Student perspective, Memes, Engaging learners
Memes are visual images, or video clips, often humorous in nature that can be easily (and rapidly) shared via social media.
Having defined memes and their potential within the context of learning environments, this submission is developed from a ‘snap shot’ presentation at the Social Media for learning in Higher education Conference (2019) at Edge Hill University. The work presents a reflective account of the lived experiences of an ex-sixth form (now a first year undergraduate) student on the educational use of ‘memes’ to engage learners and enhance learning.
