ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge - Join In!

Last summer I participated in the Summer ThingLink Teacher Challenge and it changed my approach in presenting, curating, teaching, and even my PLN (Personal Learning Network).  I am very excited to share with everyone that the amazing Susan Oxnevad is offering a 2nd ThingLink Teacher Challenge this summer.  It may be the best virtual professional development of the summer.

Here's an introduction and schedule from the ThingLink blog.

About the ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge

The ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge is a free, self-paced, online professional development opportunity designed to help teachers explore the powerful possibilities of using ThingLink for teaching and learning. This 5 week challenge invites teachers to have fun learning to use interactive images, slideshow channels and interactive video to power up your pedagogy and redefine learning in the classroom.
Throughout the challenge, we will use the ThingLink flexible suite of interactive tools for schools to create media rich, customized resources for use in your classroom. The weekly challenge activities are designed to be beneficial to educators who are new to ThingLink and also to experienced users. We will explore all the flexible features of ThingLink and discover the tremendous potential for using this amazing tool. Here are 3 reasons to take the ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge.
