Get Ready for Some More Hands-on PD

That’s right folks, with summer comes the opportunity for hands-on learning that is fun and self-paced. The 2015 ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge starts shortly (week of June 28th). This 5-week challenge introduces you to a must use resource through weekly activities. ThingLink is a tool which allows you to make images and videos interactive.  It is accessible from any device and can be used in any curricular area.  Here’s a synopsis:

“The ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge is a free, self-paced, online professional development opportunity designed to help teachers explore the powerful possibilities of using ThingLink for teaching and learning. This 5 week challenge invites teachers to have fun learning to use interactive images, slideshow channels and interactive video to power up your pedagogy and redefine learning in the classroom.”

Susan Oxnevad, author of the above quote, published a post on the Thinglink Blog explaining the details. I completed last year’s challenge and look forward to participating this summer. To me, the best part of this challenge is to see how all the participants use such a versatile tool, like ThingLink, to complete tasks which my students could do during the school year. This is a great way to start reflecting on past projects to see how ThingLink could be incorporated for this coming school year. Embedded below is an interactive image to assist you in signing up.
