I am having a wonderful time creating new projects in the ThingLink Teacher Challenge this summer. I was on vacation for challenge #4 so here is a combined blog for both weeks.
Week #4 Challenge was to produce an interactive map. I chose to produce a map of local libraries and posted this on our Facebook and Twitter accounts to help promote summer reading. In essence I am hoping this might become a family routine all year.
Week #5 Challenge was to use the new ThingLink video feature just announced this summer. I must say it was very user friendly and I can see this to be a awesome tool to use in the classroom. I used an existing tutorial video on accessing eBooks and added direct links to our FollettShelf. Again I posted this on our school's Facebook and Twitter accounts to promote our summer reading challenge.
I look forward to more ThingLink Challenges but I am excited about sharing what I have learned with my faculty and students in the coming year.
