Have you heard about Thinglink? I’m not sure where I first heard about it, but I recently was invited by Thinglink to give it a try. From what I did so far, it looks like another presentation site based on images. When I went to the site, signed up, and logged in, I was stuck. There was no place to click to move forward. Finally after some frustration, I hit the back page button and found on the home page the button for Learn More. That took me to a page that had a button for Create. There I was able to move forward and create a page. I uploaded a picture I took on our afternoon nursery trip. Since I had previously written a poem about an amaryllis, I recorded it on Soundcloud and was able to link it to the picture. I also linked an information page about the amaryllis.

I embedded the image here, but the links do not embed. You have to click on the link to go directly to the Thinglink page to get to the links.

Thinglink allows for adding students. I am interested in trying this out with my students, perhaps on a research project or to write about a book they’ve read. Have any of you used Thinglink with students? I’d love to hear about your thoughts and ideas.
