ThingLink is an interactive image tool offering a unique way to link "things" within images. Although the example on the home page uses Facebook to share a ThingLink, you do not have to use Facebook at all. Select specific items in an image (called "things") and link them to resources or other websites. By clicking the image, you can access the website that has been linked. Add multiple links to separate items or areas within an image. Choose or upload an image and click on the ThingLink icon on your image to begin editing. Click on specific spots to add information to the link. It may be easier to use a class or personal Flickr account to pull from instead of using the maximum number of images to upload.

In the Classroom

Use digital images of lab experiments or class activities for sharing on a class wiki or blog with clickable enhancements offering additional information. Have students add links or even a blog reaction or explanation to their project or experiment image. Use the site for making a photography or art portfolio blog. Have students annotate images to explain their work or various techniques they used. World language or ESL/ELL teachers can enhance images with links to sound files or other explanations for better understanding. Use in world language to label items in an image with the correct words in that language. Young students write simple sentences to practice language skills while explaining about a favorite picture or activity. Use in Science to explain the experiment or in a Consumer Science class to explain cooking or other techniques. Consider creating a class account for student groups to use together. Teachers can create a ThingLink of an image with questions and links that students must investigate to respond as a self-directed learning activity. An image of a tree could have questions and links about types of leaves, photosynthesis, and the seasons, for example.
