Sick of students creating powerpoint after powerpoint in your class? Want to provide them another avenue to create and express themselves and/or show what they know?
This week’s tech tip is a Thinglink about Thinglink. It is a creation tool that you and/or your students can use to show what they know, share information, etc… in a different way.
Check out the Thinglink below that will explain everything about Thinglink. Also, highlighted in this Thinglink are two CCSD1 teachers who have tried Thinglink in their classrooms this year! One is a step-by-step project, created in Rebecca Elliott’s 7th grade ELA classroom, that has students edit an already created thinglink to showcase their understanding of the novel, Heat. The other one is a Happiness choice board project created in Melina Foster’s ELA classroom at the HS.
Also included in this thinglink is a “student and teacher how-to-guide” to get you started (you can download it right from the thinglink). Or you can always shoot me an email and I can help you learn the tech tool, create and integrate it into a lesson, and even come to your classroom and teach the tech tool to your students!
