I posted a short blog on my school website about Thinglink, and within 40 minutes a student showed me the one above. He had used google earth (which I used with them yesterday to tag different Cathedrals all around Europe for the quest) and he made one for his blog post as a Knight. He is writing his blog about taking a pilgrimage to a Cathedral in first person. If he built one based on a post without any pushing...most students will love using it and all I have to do is show them how and pick out the best. They rock!
A few things to remember:
-Easy to upload any photo or use flickr photo's
-In edit just click and add text, links, images, podcasts and even youtube's directly in the image
Thinglink.com is fun and a great way to bring images to life. Not to mention a great teaching tool for our visual students. If you make one, leave a comment and a link to your Thinglink.
