How I Use It
My students used it for various activities in our classroom. I used it to have students record their prior knowledge about a specific lesson. After the lesson, students record their new learnings. Another way my students used Thinglink was to display information from our various Skype inter counters this year. I used it to use to facilitate a seminar during our district PD. I highlighted all the apps I used with my students this year and connected student work to each app.
My Take
My students were excited about using Thinglink. They especially liked connecting GoogleDrawings and then sending their Doc to Thinglink. It was another form of an assessment and showcase what they have learned.
