How I Use It
As a computer education coordinator (aka instructional tech trainer) I have delivered trainings using a Thinklink as my springboard. For example, I created a wordle with a list of the tools we'd be covering during the training. Then, on each word I was able to put "thinglink" dots to a short training video, examples of classroom use, etc... Teachers enjoyed this kind of visual.
My Take
I think it is engaging for visual learners and is very portable and can be embedded in an LMS like Schoology. I like that you can use any image and then link to outside information.
