Are you looking for an exciting way to curate information that you find on the Internet? Thinglink is a wonderful way to link important information to different points in images you have chosen. We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a SchoolNet webinar about Thinglink on Thursday afternoon 24 April at 3.30pm. Our presenter is Linda Foulkes from Elkanah House. We would love you to join us. (Details below)
To get an idea of how Thinglink works, take a look at the following two links and see how they have been made interactive using Thinglink.
Title: Create interactive images using Thinglink
Presenter: Linda Foulkes from Elkanah House
Summary: Linda says “Thinglink is a great tool that offers a web platform and mobile app for creating and sharing interactive images. With Thinglink teachers or students add content inside any image – including photos, video and audio players, web links, polls, text and more. These appear in the image when shared and viewed. Thinglink can be used for a wide variety of purposes in Education for teaching and learning. Its design is flexible and easy to use for all levels of technology integration thus providing a differentiated learning experience. It all starts with an image, which is then defined through multimedia, then packed full of content. This presentation will demonstrate how:
a) one would create a Thinglink and where can one draw content come from?
b) you would use the free tagging tool to give photos new life with sound, voice, video, social, and photo based quizzes
c) create student accounts from a list of names
d) using channels to organize your Thinglink classroom
e) using the Thinglink App
f) Thinglink resources
Date and time : Thursday 24 April 2014: 3:30pm (15 – 20 minutes)
