Thanks to MargaretGSimon for hosting!
One of the assignments that I learned about is called a ThingLink. The ThingLinks allow for students to explore a group of themed links (similar to padlet) so that the images, videos, slideshows can be viewed right within the classroom stream via the thinglink website. It allows the creator to collect links to external sites and strategically place them throughout the image chosen for the background.
Here is my first thinglink. It's about summer reading.
I enjoyed learning how to make it as the site had helpful video tutorials that I could watch to learn more about the product and how to use it. I also see the potential as an inquiry project that could showcase final work of an individual or collaborative group work. I think the possibilities are endless. Try it out and see what you think. Here is the link to sign up for an account.
I wonder if you've used Thinglink before and for what function? Please share in the comments below. Thanks and happy learning!
