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.

BIG SAVINGS FOR NEW PREMIUM OR PRO CUSTOMERS IN DECEMBER

At ThingLink, one of our most important goals is to provide a safe and engaging experience for students. For this reason, we provide educators with the ability to manage student accounts and assume responsibility for overseeing safe use, guided by school and district policies. Our Free Teacher accounts are designed for anyone to easily try ThingLink, which means Free users do not provide us with information to verify their identities as educators.

As a result, free teacher account holders will no longer be able to register or manage students starting December 15th, 2017.  To keep students safe, they will need an invitation code from a paid teacher in order to create with ThingLink.

ACT FAST FOR INCREDIBLE SAVINGS
