Students can create digital projects with images, music, videos, and websites to win an iPad Mini or annual subscription to one of Rosen Digital’s online databases
We have joined with Rosen Digital for the first ThingLink Interactive Image Contest. It’s our way of celebrating students, teachers and all the ways that learning can be fun.
Susan Oxnevad, Instructional Technology Facilitator and educator for 26 years said: “ThingLink is one of my favorite and most frequently used tools because it supports active student participation and requires users to construct knowledge as they create. The tool can be very useful for designing and implementing the types of deep learning experiences required by the Common Core and it is also an effective way to help students develop digital literacy skills.”
Eligibility: All students K-12 are eligible to enter. Teachers and parents may enter an image on a student’s behalf.
Submission Deadline: Images may be submitted through May 1, 2013. Enter images at ThingLinkContest.com.
Winners will be announced on May 15, 2013.
