Susan Oxnevad's insight:

ThingLink is a multimedia rich and flexible tool can be used to support the diverse learning needs of all students, putting power in the hands of the facilitator of a well designed lesson. So let’s focus a bit on designing lessons from the start that are equipped with built-support and designed for success. 


Universal Design for Learning supports the idea of designing lessons from the start that are equipped with support for all learners to overcome learning barriers and to meet their diverse learning needs.

Using interactive maps in the classroom encourages exploration, invites curiosity and promotes spatial thinking. Interactive maps can be used to provide students with background knowledge to launch a unit, or they can be used as a starting point for digging deeper into any concept through research. Interactive maps can be used to explore a wide variety of topics in traditional ways, or they can be used creatively to help students visualize just about anything.

ThingLink Teacher Challenge: Digging Deeper Into Vocabulary | ThingLink Blog

ThingLink Teacher Challenge: Digging Deeper Into Vocabulary | ThingLink Blog | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | Scoop.it

Week 3 of the ThingLink Teacher Challenge invites participants to design an interactive image for teaching vocabulary. 


Digging deeper into vocabulary means more than just sending students to a dictionary to look up the definition. Students must interact with  new vocabulary.  Opportunities to use words, explore them within different contexts and create non-linguistic representations of words will help them do more than just memorize words. ThingLink is well-suited for the task.
