Susan Oxnevad: I am excited to share a Teacher Toolkit of Resources for using ThingLink for teaching and learning.


The wiki includes:

 

- Several samples of Common Core aligned projects by grade level.


- A collection of quick video tutorials to demonstrate how to use ThingLink. The tutorials can be used with students to provide tech support right when needed.


- Resources for creating original artwork to be used with a ThingLink image.


- A help button for support from a real teacher.


- An opportunity for sharing.


- A brand new blog for sending updates. Sign up!
