More Ideas for Using ThinkLink In Your Classroom

Last week I shared Donna Baumbach's great Google Presentation of 65+ ways to use ThingLink in your classroom. This spring ThingLink ran a contest in which students submitted their ThingLink creations. The contest is over now, but you can still see the submissions on the contest page. Some of the examples that jumped out to me were interactive diagrams of the human digestion system, an interactive version of Van Gogh's Starry Night, and a cute interactive image titled Puppies Count As Family Too. I didn't count all of the images on the page, but I'm confident in saying there is well over 100 interactive images created by students on the page. Take a look at the contest page and get ideas for your own use of interactive images in your classroom.
