Tech Tools: Have You Tried? (1: ThingLink)

This, the first in the series of recommended tools for teaching and learning, showcases ThingLink. ThingLink allows users to insert hotspots over an image containing text, videos, audio, hyperlinks, maps and much more.


Imagine students using this when analyzing poetry, developing map skills, understanding physical forces, studying plant life, breaking down the parts of an equation, cartoon and/ or visual image analysis, and so on. It also makes for a great way for students to demonstrate their learning in collaborative or child-driven learning experiences.

The icons on these images are hotspots which you or your students can create and then tap to explore.


Thinglink is cross-platform (meaning you can create and view on any device) – and it’s free. (You will need to pay to access the virtual reality ThingLink maker though.)
