Using ThingLink 360 to Create a Tour of our Library

We have been in the process of turning our library into a Learning Commons. This process has been 3 years in the making and we are super proud of the progress. Unfortunately, I am not always able to reach all my parents and community through open houses and parent meetings. The library often gets overlooked. I created this tour to give future and current students and parents, as well as teachers and community members, an inside look into the amazing things we have going on in our Learning Commons Space.

Guess Where In The World Are You with ThingLink’s 360 Holiday Game!

Happy Holidays!

Perhaps the best gift of the season is to be able to enjoy spending time with family and friends. To help you enjoy this special time, we’ve created an interactive guessing game for the whole family to play together.

Guess What is a 360-degree guessing game where players need to determine where they are, or what they see, within 30 seconds. In this version of the game, you are guessing where in the world are you. Try it with friends and family, and see how many cities each of you gets right!

Guess What

If you happened to get a 360 camera from Santa Claus and you are looking for a great way to use it, we have a little activity for you:  You can build your own 360 guessing game. All you need to do is put together a channel of 360 images on ThingLink, and email it to us at social@thinglink.com. We will feature the best guessing games from around the world on our blog and newsletter!

At ThingLink, we are big fans of the idea that immersive storytelling brings people together. We think you will agree when you explore Guess What.
