Share your image of the week for a chance to select a professional 360 image for our library!

Every Tuesday for the past 6-months we have featured an interactive image created by a member of our education community. Our goal is to inspire educators with great ideas and illustrate connections to learning goals. We love to promote our users, so we have designed a mini-contest to encourage you to submit a 360/VR image for consideration as our featured Image of the Week and earn a chance to select a professional 360 image for our library!

We’re Growing a Collection of 360 Images for Reuse

When ThingLink 360/VR first made an appearance, we quickly realized there was a need to create a collection of 360 images for our users. We have worked in several ways to help our users find 360 images.

Kathy Schrock’s 360 Images for Schools

When we first launched ThingLink 360/VR, Kathy Schrock jumped in to help us address important digital citizenship issues and create a Flickr group to serve as a repository of 360 images that are properly licensed for reuse by schools.  If you have a 360 camera, we invite you to join Kathy’s group and add some images to this collection.

Our Library of Stunning 360 Images

Over the course of the 1st year, we created a library of 360 images for our users. We started with state and world capitals, and have continued to grow our collection. Every 360 image that appears in our library is available for modification and reuse on our platform.

Empowering Users to Capture 360 Photos with Phones

We have spent the past year teaching educators and students how to use their own phones, iPads, and 360 cameras to capture the world in 360 photos. Use of phones levels the playing field for those who are unable to purchase a camera. Anyone can take a 360 photo with the device in their pocket! That’s quite empowering for teachers and students.

Suggestions from Our Community

Recently, We asked ThingLink Certified Educators to select a professional 360 image for purchase that would be useful to our users, and those images have been added to our growing collection for everyone. We believe our education community members can help us create the best professional 360 image library possible, so we have designed this mini-contest to provide users with a chance to submit an Image of the Week for a chance to select an image to add to our library of 360 images. Browse this channel of 360 images suggested by Certified Educators.
