Thinglink- some new technology this Tuesday


It's a lovely morning here in West Seattle and I'm loving being on Spring Break. I would be lying if I didn't tell you I was already on countdown to summer. Sleeping in and having breakfast at home is so fabulous!

Today I wanted to share something that is brand new to me. It's called Thinglink. Thinglink allows you to add icons to pictures with information or links to other sites. 
 You can choose to simply have text associated with the image or it can link to another site or YouTube video. I think this would be a great tool for a research project. I know we just finished Read Across America but as an example I also put together a Dr. Seuss Thinglink. Just to be on the safe side I used links to Seussville since those Seuss folks are mighty particular.
Thinglink is free to join for educators and sharing your Thinglinks in really easy. You could add links to your webpage for your kiddos and with a little guidance they could begin creating their now Thinglinks.
