ExamTime - Changing the way you learn Four Ways to Think About Using ThingLink - Rethinking ThingLink This is a guest post from Shawn McCusker of, an advertiser on this site. While there are some very creative web tools out there, ThingLink is one of my favorites. It has earned this status by passing several of my key benchmark-tests for the classroom: It is dependable and accessible.Students need not fear that their work will be lost as it automatically saves.It is relatively easy to learn and use.Rarely does a lesson become more about “ThingLink” than the topic about which students are trying to express their knowledge.

ThingLink Blog | One thing leads to another! Creare immagini interattive con ThingLink L’immagine che vedete alla fine di quest’articolo è molto diversa dalle altre che si trovano su Internet, perché si tratta di un’immagine interattiva. Per molto tempo siamo stati convinti che questo tipo di foto fossero appannaggio di web designers, programmatori, etc. Invece, questa è la dimostrazione che ormai tutti possono creare delle immagini nelle quali inserire, link a pagine web, video, audio o addirittura altre immagini. Si tratta infatti di una mia creazione grazie ad un sito molto utile che si chiama ThingLink. L’iscrizione è gratuita (come sempre basta solo la vostra email) ed in pochi minuti potrete creare qualcosa di simile. ThingLink vi lascia caricare le vostre foto (da computer, da Facebook o anche direttamente da un link) ed in pochi semplicissimi passaggi vi permette di aggiungere i tag, ovvero quei cerchietti bianchi, ai quali potete collegare qualsiasi cosa troviate in Rete.

Thinglink IL MIO PRIMO WEBINAR tenuto il 24 Ottobre, giorno del matrimonio dei miei nonni! Proprio un bel giorno perché il mio nonno nel 1971 mi disse quando sarai grande potrai chiamare tua mamma al telefono e vederla dall'altra parte. Oggi ho alzato gli occhi al cielo e ho detto al mio nonno: " Ma tu Nonno, ti immaginavi anche, che io da grande avrei tenuta una lezione davanti un computer, (che nel 1971 erano grandi quanto uno stanza) e 259 docenti di tutto l'Italia, mi avrebbero non solo sentiti ma anche visti?" Ora continuo a sognare e spero che fra non tanto tempo, si possa interagire ancora di più virtualmente. NOTA: I primi dieci minuti illustrano le prime sei dispositive che per motivi tecnici non erano visibili in quel momento.

Les meilleures conférences TED sur l’éducation Sir Ken Robinson nous expose d’une manière amusante et profonde la nécessité de créer un système éducatif qui favorise (plutôt que rabaisse) la créativité.
