ThingLink …what?

I just learned about ThingLink, a site that allows you to make images interactive. Hmm… What’s this? Check it out for yourself. Wow!

I’m excited by the possibilities. Here’s a good example of the social web breaking barriers and mashing things together. Why let a picture’s thousand words tell the story? Why not augment that with the millions of other words that a few other pictures, videos, sounds, and comments will contribute? And, what’s more, ThingLink images are viewable in Flipboard on an iPad, which makes them usable with AirPlay in the classroom! Now you can see why the pulse quickens.

I first learned of ThingLink via an Edudemic article on innovative ways to use it in the classroom
