Article describes how ThingLink is used in conjunction with info graphics to evaluate and critique the infographic. VERY cool use of ThingLink.

Also identifies a nifty way to use Google Forms to collect URLs of the ThingLinks and organize in one place.

  • When evaluating infographics, I ask them to identify the message/purpose of each infographic and identify the visual data that effectively supports that message/purpose. In the past, I’ve provided links in class to infographics and had groups of students critique each infographic.
  • This year, I am using ThingLink to allow them to evaluate and critique an infographic on a topic that interests them. ThingLink allows the user to make any image interactive. Students can attach notes, links, images, and videos to a picture. ThingLink is easy to use and encourages students to think more deeply about media and convey information in a dynamic way.
  • I plan to have each of my students create a ThingLink account. When they are done evaluating and critiquing their infographics, they will complete a Google Form with their name, class name, email, and the link for their interactive image, so it’s all saved in an organized Google Sheet! This will make it easy for me to collect and review their work.

  • If you’re a teacher, and you’re in any way digital (and you presumably are if you’re reading this), there are some strategies you might consider to lubricate the interaction between the two.
  • And that’s where Lessons Learned from Lecturing from Laura Pasquini, Ph.D., comes in. In this fairly short presentation, Dr. Pasquini (whose blog you can find here) offers 10 lessons for the digital teacher. The strength in these tips is in the practical and flexible value each idea represents.
