Many talented members of our ThingLink EDU community have discovered the benefits of powering an App Smash with ThingLink. You’ll find us sharing at EdTech conferences and through virtual events everywhere. For this reason, we are excited to be celebrating App Smashing with ThingLink throughout the month of November.
What is App Smashing with ThingLink?
App Smashing is a popular method of combining two or more apps together to create, publish and share content. App Smashing challenges us to discover new possibilities for teaching and learning with an iPad and presents us with greater possibilities for making the device meet our goals. ThingLink is well suited for for powering any App Smash because of the presentation possibilities provided by the ability to turn any image into a rich multimedia content launcher.
