Thinglink is a free web tool or mobile app (iOS or Android) that allows you or your students to create interactive images. Thinglink allows images to come alive by adding notes, links, video or other interactive elements. Teachers use Thinglink for a variety of lessons and activities. Examples include: annotating text, documenting science lab activities, creating flipped lessons, close reading, sharing learning and creating artist statements.
You can earn three levels of badges with Thinglink – complete all three and earn the Thinglink Quest Badge.
