My interest in ThingLink began when I saw an advertisement about becoming a ThingLink Certified Educator. As an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher (ITRT) for Richmond City Public Schools in Virginia, it is always important to me to find exciting and innovative tools to help teachers engage students with various content. After exploring the program, it was clear that ThingLink is an amazing fit for an endless array of learning opportunities. Indeed, I am so excited to become more familiar with the tool and to be able to share it with the educators I work with.

Every year my students study immigration by conducting an oral history with an immigrant, writing up the details and, in the past, displaying their subject’s story on bulky large tri-fold foam core boards. The lessons learned from the personal experiences of the immigrants are priceless. But the foam core boards are limiting, bulky and difficult to share.
