ThingLink is one of our favorite Web 2.0 tools to use within the library and our school. The students and teachers just LOVE creating ThingLinks that contains the words, videos, images, audio, and other elements that they choose.
Yesterday I received an exciting email from my friend Neil Veinberg, CMO of ThingLink. Neil told me about the newest cool thing from ThingLink.....
He also shared a great post from the ThingLink blog. I asked Neil if I could post it here on the Voice so you can all read about it too.
ThingLink launches Remix – Make any Image a Conversation
I couldn't wait to try out REMIX and create a new ThingLink. It was very easy to turn on REMIX. I went into my "Account Settings" and then to "Miscellaneous" to check I wanted my images to be REMIXED. If you are signing up for a new account, you will automatically have REMIX in your account.
After school today Janelle Thompson, who is one of our 5th grade teachers that I collaborate with a lot, and I thought of fun ways we are going to use ThingLink REMIX with our students.
First up......Creating a ThingLink to share their original poems for Poetry Month in April. Janelle also had the idea of finding a tree and having the students add their poems throughout the trees as the leaves. I can't wait to see what we create and share.
Have fun with ThingLink and REMIX!
