Hi Everyone! I am in graduate school and I just learned about a great tool for students....I don't know if any of you are familiar with "Thinglinks" but I would highly recommend these to help with a new learning tool for students. They are easy to use and can be kept in the child's educational portfolio. Here's my example of one....hope you enjoy it!

Hello Meghan,

Thinglink is a great tool! I have been using it with my French students (i.e., learners of French) to create tagged vocal boards, as well as to create illustrated stories using the tags. The students have enjoyed being able to take their own pictures and making stories with them.

I love your board with videos - super idea to use with students! Not to mention how fun for your nephew!

Here is an example one of my students made - she had a project to create her own clothing store in French. Love the creativity, but best of all, she was totally engaged as she did the project. Fun.

What other ideas do people have to use this tool?

Best wishes,
