How I Use It
Thinglink is a great app for bringing together a variety of multimedia information into one digital place. It is similar to Glogster, but the background is an image. Using this application in the classroom challenges students to connect multimedia to various spots on an image. This would be a great reading application for students to find a image of a character they are reading in a novel and adding media that explains the various character traits.
I am always looking for purposeful ways to integrate technology into my lessons. Thinglink is a great way to deepen understanding using hot spots on an image that link to videos, text or images. This application can be used web-based or also as an IPad app.
