LINK TO SITE
Thinglink is an image engagement tool that makes it easy to add clickable tags (music, video, text, images) to any image on the web and share the tagged images on social networks. Free for educational use. Available for iOS, Android.
ThingLink can be used in the web browser on your laptop, in the Chrome browser on an Android tablet, or through the ThingLink iPad app. To create an interactive image upload an image from your computer to your ThingLink account. After uploading the image, you can add pins to the image. Each pin that you add to your image can include a video clip, a link to another site, a SoundCloud recording, an Audioboo recording, a block of text, or another image. You can make your images collaborative by allowing others to add pins to the image. Images can be embedded into blog posts for students to view and or add their own pins. A few of the ways that I’ve seen ThingLink used by teachers is to have students add multimedia labels to diagrams of cells, to label geographic features, and to label historical images like that of the signing of the declaration of independence.
