May 17th celebration: A Virtual Field Trip to Norway

To celebrate the Norwegian Constitution Day, we decided to send a special greeting to our dear Scandinavian neighbors who are almost as happy as the Finns.  With love, we put together this virtual 360 degree tour to the stunningly beautiful land of fjords and fells. The tour starts from Laedal, goes through the longest road tunnel to Bergen, then takes a ferry to North, and ends up at a Constitution Day celebration party after a quick visit to Oslo.

Now, the only thing missing from this tour are the people! Do you have a story or memory from Norway? Here is what you can do:

a) Open the voice recorder on your phone and record an audio clip telling a special memory or story from Norway 

b) Open the ThingLink editor, clone any image from this tour to your own account, and make your own version of the trip! Add audio clips, notes, music, photos, videos, or anything you like –and share it onwards!

If you don’t have a ThingLink account yet, check out our new Premium Teacher plan!

In February, Italian educators participated in an immersive workshop designed and facilitated by Astrid Hulsebosch and Licia Landi during the Festival della Didattica Digitale in Lucca, Tuscany. The goal of this innovative professional development for educators was to “learn by doing”, so the educators started the session at the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini to immerse themselves in the learning. After 90 minutes in the field capturing learning on the go, the educators returned to a workspace in the Casa del Boia to create a ThingLink 360 tour of Puccini’s birthplace.
