The goal of this innovative professional development for educators was to “learn by doing”, so the educators started the session at the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini to immerse themselves in the learning. After 90 minutes in the field capturing learning on the go, the educators returned to a workspace in the Casa del Boia to create a ThingLink 360 tour of Puccini’s birthplace.

by Mona Voelkel

Thinglink allows students to explore different worlds and take on different personas as they explore that world.

Unleash the possibilities of Thinglink 360 by crafting learning experiences that allow students to gain information about important issues, filter that information through a shifted perspective and then build on that learning to bring about change.  This allows for the embodied virtual experience to lead into real-world journeys of empathy and social change.

by Mel Rosenberg, Guest Author

We downloaded Civil War images from the Library of Congress and added several media assets from sites to sounds. As a technology teacher, we labeled feet with our digital footprints and created tours of our school with ThingLink 360/VR. But now, as an English teacher, I had to do a little thinking…. What would be the best use of ThingLink in the Language Arts classroom?
