Thinglink: A Great Class Activity

David Korfhage tweeted this link to Thinglink. Thinglink allows you to tag your images with video, audio, social profiles, and web links. It's a really cool site with great possibilities for the classroom.

I created an assignment for my religions class. We're beginning a unit on Judaism and the object is for them to annotate pictures and art that represent the development of early Judaism using Thinglink (such as Abraham's Journey, Abraham Sacrificing Isaac, Moses Breaking the Tablets). Once the kids have annotated the photographs, they will paste them into an assignment folder on Blackboard. Here is an image that I annotated using Thinglink.
