How I Use It
I would use Thinglink to introduce concepts to a class (or a group of teachers for PD). I would also use this as an assessment of knowledge or as a tool for students to gather information for a research-based project. It's a great way to gather information and to engage learners. It's very visual, which all students seem to enjoy.
My Take
I would definitely recommend using this app. Students are engaged when using it and spend a lot of time finding the perfect links to add to their photos.
