Image of the Week: Introducing New Technology through Interactive Imagery

Will your school or district be introducing new technology to your students? ThingLink provides a platform for designing a multimedia launch to the program. Our image of the week comes to us from Cory Goetsch. Cory’s interactive image introduces students to a new offering in the Aplington-Parkersburg School District, the Drone Program.

New technology programs are started each year in schools across the country. Enthusiastic teachers incorporate the latest technology for students to get hands-on exposure and experience utilizing within an academic setting. Our stakeholders and community at large (who sometimes assist with grants) need to be aware of the exciting opportunities our students have at their fingertips. Creating an interactive image that highlights the components of your new program can not only offer insight into the course but also hook the students’ interests.
