Skip this post if you're not a teacher. I know most of my readers are runners, but a few of you are teachers, so I wanted to share this idea. For non-teachers, this post is going to be VERY long and VERY boring.

3 Ways to Use ThingLink Custom Icon Sets | ThingLink Blog | Cool Tools for Common Core Connections | Scoop.it
Susan Oxnevad's insight:

ThingLink Custom Icon Sets are a new feature available to teachers with premium accounts. They offer  a whole new layer of opportunities for using interactive images for teaching and learning. Think of Custom Icon Sets as visual labels that can be used to further define an image and provide a glimpse of the type of content to be explored behind the link. They are fun to create and have many great uses in the classroom.
