A ThingLink challenge and new video tagging

One of the most versatile and easiest-to-use platforms I’ve used over the past several years is ThingLink.

I’ve used the interactive poster tagging tool to create and embed media-rich image maps, to annotate and evaluate the claims infographics make, as a portfolio and as a curation tool.

This summer, educator, consultant and ThingLink Education Community Manager, Susan Oxnevad invites educators to share their creativity and push the envelope with a ThingLink Teacher Challenge on a Google+ Community.

In her blog post, Susan explains the rationale for this free self-paced summer challenge:

This challenge invites teachers to learn to use interactive images to redefine learning in the classroom. Learn how to connect audio, video, images, and text in one cohesive presentation during this self-paced professional development opportunity. 

Images are archived on this Pinterest Board and on these ThingLink slideshows:

Even if you don’t choose to participate, these creative uses of the interactive platform will inspire plenty of ideas for fall.   And if you are inspired to create a Thinglink image, use this form to submit.

In other ThingLink news, ThingLink for Video is coming soon.

ThingLink for Video will join a few other interactive video options I reviewed last year in an interactive video round-up.  Sign up if you are interested in early access.
