ThingLink at #ISTE2016

ThingLink made a big splash at ISTE2016 with interactive 360/VR lessons. Educators were excited to discover the powerful possibilities of using the sleek new tool to design learning experiences on top of breathtaking 360 images. Many thanks to Naomi Harm and Dell for inviting us to display our images on the gorgeous, new 70 inch LED touch display! Everyone loved exploring the 360/VR lesson on London, above. Explore the lesson in full-screen mode for the best experience.

Take Aways from #ISTE2016

At ISTE2016 I had the opportunity to hold my first hands-on training session using ThingLink 360/VR. The room was filled with educators using a variety of devices. I’m happy to report that participants were able to work in teams to add tags to 360/VR images easily with very simple, basic directions. They were able to generate ideas for using ThingLink to meet their teaching and learning needs. It is an honor to empower educators with tools that help them transform teaching and learning, and ThingLink 360/VR is a tool that can do that!

Next Post: Get Started with the ThingLink Summer VR Challenge

Many educators at ISTE2016 stopped by the EdTech Coaches Playground to chat with  Jodie Johnston and I about the ThingLink Summer VR Challenge. Jodie and I met during the 1st ThingLink Summer Challenge 3 years ago, and it was such fun meeting face-to-face and working together to invite educators to join us this year! Teachers who recently registered for the summer VR Challenge are being given access to the 360/VR tag editing tool and the teacher challenge is about to begin!
