Tech Tuesday: Thinglink

While this isn't necessarily a specific Tech Tip- it's a deal that you don't want to miss.

ThingLink is a tool that allows you to add tags to an image. Using these tags, you can add multimedia including links and videos to any image. Once you see it in action, it's easy to imagine all of the possibilities that ThingLink holds for your classroom.

The following graphic includes a variety of tips and resources for using ThingLink in the classroom or even for professional development purposes. Recently, a friend and I did a training on presentation tools and our whole presentation was set into a ThingLink.



I am sharing this with you today because ThingLink is expanding their offerings for educators and creating a specific ThingLink Education account. If you create or upgrade your account by the end of the day- December 31- you will automatically receive these services for free. Find the information here.

So, don't miss out!

Stay connected,

  1. This is soooo cool. I think I used this a while ago (or tried it out). I love the idea of direct links within images--I just I just think it adds so much visually. I actually think this would be a really good educational tool for group work or even using it for having students make connections to other information/articles they find. There is a world of possibilities with this.

    thanks

  2. Thinglink sounds like it would be a great tool to use in the classroom. It is exciting to see more tools to use in the classroom that has the ability to make learning more interesting. I really think that by using Thinglink, the teachers will be able to make their presentations more interactive for the students. The presentations will also look more professional as the amount of clutter on the page will be reduced. The teachers will be able to link information together and the students will be able to access this information by the click of a mouse. The students will also be able to use this to create presentations of their own. I think that the students would have a lot of fun making their presentations and presenting them to the class. I'm excited to use this myself to see how it works.
