To reflect on the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King, we’ve published 3 ways to use ThingLink to power thoughtful learning. We hope these ideas inspire you to create your own ThingLinks and we encourage you to submit them for a chance to select a 360 image for our stunning library of images.
With media steadily moving out of print and on to the web, consumer choices are steadily increasing as publications multiply. Distinguishing your work is key to attracting and keeping readership, and interactive media is a great way to engage your audience. Keep viewers on your content and reading longer with images, video and 360° material that combines multimedia options. While plain text gets the information across, interactive media is a useful and effective supplement that makes it more interesting and visual.
We invite you to explore our monthly inspiration featuring ideas and pedagogy to help educators leverage the power of ThingLink for teaching and learning in January! Happy Tagging!
ThingLink has always been a tool that allows users to capture learning on the go. Explorers can use whatever portable device is handy to tell digital stories about locations and experiences on the spot. This is a fantastic way to engage learners of all ages in deep learning about locations and kick it up a notch! Please explore 2 narrated 360/VR audio tours created on location and on-the-spot and consider putting ThingLink in your pocket the next time you go on an adventure!
