ThingLink Teacher Challenge June Update

The ThingLink Teacher Challenge is going strong at the end of June. If you haven’t joined us yet, this would be a great time to get started! We’ve launched 3 activities to date. Participants will find they can complete all three of them in about 2-4 hours, depending on your experience level, and the depth of the activity you design. Here is a summary of resources to help everyone stay on track during this self-paced PD opportunity in June and July.

A Slideshow of Task Cards

Each of the activities for the Teacher Challenge has a unique page and lesson. To help participants quickly create the activities, we have used ThingLink to create interactive Task Cards with step-by-step directions. Each activity has been added to a ThingLink Channel, or slideshow. Scroll through the channel to access directions for each challenge and learn to put these resources to use. To learn more about ways to use our Channels, and to get all resources for this PD, visit ThingLink Teacher Challenge Central.
