Today I have to thank Matt over at Digital: Divide and Conquer for his great Tried it on Tuesday post this week. It featured the very cool technology tool called Thinglink, which helps educators create interactive images that help students develop 21st century skills and enrich their enthusiasm for learning. As I browsed the site I was inspired to try one of my own.
Since February focuses on famous African Americans, I made a Thinglink on the scientist George Washington Carver to share. Just hover over the picture and then click on all of the icons to see and hear many interesting facts and images on Dr. Carver.
I had a lot of fun creating this to introduce my students to George Washington Carver. It is very interactive and engaging and meets the needs of many of my students. You will definitely want to add this site to your repertoire of cool ed tech tools. You can also collaborate with other educators on Thinglink to share your images and ideas.
