News for EDU Community Members
One of the big reasons we blog here on the ThingLink Blog for Education is to provide our community with ideas and inspiration for using ThingLink for teaching and learning. We celebrate the leadership of ThingLink Certified Educators and truly appreciate the strength that can be found within this community of learners. In case you missed it, here are some recent highlights.
