ThingLink is a free and user friendly digital tool that provides users with the ability to turn any image into an interactive graphic. Create multiple “hot spots” on specific parts of an image and turn that image into a multimedia launcher.  Include video, record audio or provide a link to any website with the click of a button. Easily embed an interactive ThingLink graphic into any blog or website. ThingLink is a truly amazing tool that allows users to pack a lot of content into a small space.

Ways to Use ThingLink for Teaching and Learning

Create and publish an interactive graphic for students to explore prior to class to provide them with background knowledge. Students can revisit the activity as needed for reteaching and review.   In addition, students can create their own interactive images.
