ThingLink Teacher Challenge Week #4 and #5

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.


  1. Love the video with the ThingLink enhancements! Very cool!

  2. Thanks Donna. I'm getting so many ideas for next year.
