Create an Interactive Historical Art Lesson

It can be hard to remember history and to keep track of all the different facts and events – and art history even more so! There is a lot of meaning and significance buried in art, and extracting these is key to the learning experience. What better way to do this than by making the art interactive?

Extract meaning from the art by focusing on specific parts of it and creating explanatory tags. You can make use of our different pre-made icons for different corresponding tags – or even create your own icons with one of our paid plans.

Creating Digital Breakouts Using ThingLink 360/VR

This ThingLink Certifed Educator guest post, by Dan Gallagher was originally published on his own blog, A Tech Perspective… or something like that.

Last June, I wrote a post about my ‘Escape the Classroom‘ first attempt at a digital breakout. After that 360° ThingLink received some attention, I collaborated with Susan Oxnevad, Director of Education at ThingLink, to offer a webinar on utilising this feature for teachers to create their own (read the posting on the ThingLink for Education Blog). The webinar took place on Tuesday, February 28. Below is the Google Slide presentation from the webinar as well as a video recording.

Take the ThingLink 360 Breakout Challenge

We are pleased to invite educators to take the ThingLink 360 Breakout Challenge in March. This fun and free professional learning opportunity stems from an innovative idea by Dan Gallagher, a ThingLink Certified Educator with a lot of talent. Dan has combined the power of ThingLink’s 360 image editor with Google Docs to create an interactive, media-rich version of the popular learning game Breakout EDU. This hot classroom activity is an educational adaptation of an escape room that requires students to use clues to try to break out of a room.

Take A Deep Dive Into Cell Anatomy

What better way to learn cell anatomy than to make it interactive? Take anatomy in your classroom to the next level by having your students tag diagrams with informational materials and descriptions.

Since anatomy can be incredibly complicated and detailed, students can take the time to clearly and purposefully label and tag diagrams for a deeper learning experience. ThingLink images can be tagged with a wide variety of rich media tags to make them even more engaging.

Explore Our Example

This great example of hands-on learning was created by a student, and includes text tags and video narration for a thorough learning experience.

 


Now that you’ve explored this great example, it’s time to get started!  If you want to learn more about how to use all our other features, schedule a demo with a ThingLink expert or sign up for one of our free webinars. You can also check out some other great education examples here. Happy Tagging!
