I’m sure we have all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. With ThingLink a picture can be worth a thousand words, three videos, two links, and three text excerpts from a website.
ThingLink is a free online program that allows users to create interactive images. Interactive images are images that contains tags that link to additional information. Tags can be links to more information, text, music, or videos. Creating ThingLinks are a great way to help students explain and visualize concepts. Below is a sample ThingLink (link).
