Thinglink is a platform where students and teachers can tag a picture to add more information to the picture such as a video, an embed link, or an additional image with text or a link. This would be great for a lesson where you want students to research a concept, directing students to specific websites using links as well as specific videos. In my example I embedded a pallet board where all the students can post what they have learned from their “research”. Thinglink would be a great tool for students to use as a final project to put all their work in one spot. For example, if they created a youtube video of them modelling a bee pollinating a flower they could post that link as a tag on their thinglink.

  1. I really enjoyed how you incorporated Padlet into your lesson! I agree that this platform is a great way to teach guided research and allow for students to explore a topic while incorporating information that you are teaching in class. I can definitely see myself using this in my own class.

  2. I like how you used this! Guiding research is great for younger students and thinglink is clearly a good tool for making it more interactive and engaging.

  3. I like the integration of Padlet. Great idea. Not sure why there is a link to Niagara Falls behind the plus sign?
