On Thursday afternoon 24 April 2014 at 3.30pm we held a SchoolNet webinar entitled ‘Create interactive images using ThingLink’ prsented by Linda Foulkes from Elkanah House High School. We would like to thank Linda very much for willing to present for us and for the great webinars she presents.
The webinar description
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
