Every image has a story – and you can help those images come to life and tell deeper stories with ThingLink. Join us as we demonstrates how authors of all ages can use ThingLink to tell engaging digital stories by easily adding an interactive layer to images and videos. When a reader moves their mouse over images or videos annotated with ThingLink, they can explore additional information, listen to songs, watch videos, or answer polls without leaving the page. We will share how to create an interactive image, as well as how to turn multiple images into interactive image books that are sure to meet the diverse needs of all learners. Come explore the powerful possibilities of digital storytelling with ThingLink.
This webinar will be broadcast live on Monday, 11/22 at 7:00 PM EST. Can’t make it? Sign up to receive the archive in your in box. Explore the interactive image below to find links to all of the webinars in this series
There is a wealth of research to suggest that vocabulary knowledge is the single best predictor of student academic achievement across all curriculum areas. Experts agree, if given the opportunity to receive effective vocabulary instruction, most students can acquire vocabulary at rates that will improve their comprehension and also their chances for success in school. Even the Common Core identifies Academic Vocabulary as one of the six big shifts. It’s clear that educators need to spend some time teaching it.
Digging deeper into vocabulary means more than just sending students to a dictionary to look up the definition. Students must interact with new vocabulary. Opportunities to use words, explore them within different contexts, and create non-linguistic representations of words will help them do more than just memorize them. ThingLink is well-suited for the task and to illustrate this we are Building the Ultimate Word Wall!

Our next webinar is designed to help educators transform teaching and learning with ThingLink with Google Docs. Educators can use a Google Doc to collect information, automate tasks and make the workflow progress smoothly throughout a student driven learning experience. ThingLink’s media rich platform displays published Google Docs right on top of any image or video. Better yet, those Google Docs are live and interactive. This is a truly great combination of tools for the classroom. We hope you will join us by signing up to participate live or on demand.
