How I Use It
Use this tool to create annotated images with information your students curate from other sources. For example, in this App Flow (/app-flows/impressionism-art-project) students analyze a piece of Impressionist art using criteria they learn from online videos and readings. Thinkglink is a tool to tie together information in quick, interactive way. See their education page for more lesson ideas (https://www.thinglink.com/edu).
My Take
The product itself is not educational. It's designed for magazines and product catalogs such as for IKEA and Nike. But with a free education account, teachers can use a simple but powerful tool. If used to have students select relevant information and summarize their learning, it can be a quick, interactive activity that helps foster understanding.
