Thinglink is one of my favorite tools for creating multimedia, interactive collages. Last year Thinglink introduced Thinglink Edu. This week they took things a step further and introduced verified accounts for schools.
Verified Thinglink educational organization accounts will receive the option to give access to a managing teacher to view student accounts and group accounts from one dashboard.
Applications for Education
Verified Thinglink accounts should provide an extra measure of control and security for schools that are having students use the service to develop interactive images.
Last summer Shawn McCusker wrote a great overview of four ways to use Thinglink in the classroom. I encourage you to read Shawn’s post here.
