Here is another awesome resource for your toolkit...Thinglink and Google Drive! I am a fan of both tools and was excited to learn that I could use them together. Thinglink allows users to create interactive images (see my post here). Now you can take Thinglink even further and integrate Google Drive! In the example shown above, I have created a Thinglink project about animals cells. I created my image using Google Drawings. Students can access the Thinglink via a link. At the bottom of the Thinglink I have incorporated the following using Google Drive:
I could easily direct the students to the Thinglink and they will have everything in one place to complete their learning task. How cool is that?! You can find more information on the Thinglink blog about Thinglink & Google Docs integration from Susan Oxnevad. Her example is AWESOME!
