#8 of the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017 According to Education Experts –
Tutora posted the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017. I have decided to post re each, and we start with #8 on the list:
8. ThingLink – Annotate Images and Videos
As nominated by Brian Seymour of Seymour Educate, and Nikolaos Chatzopoulos of Tech Trends for Teachers.
Amongst the various interactive annotation applications available, ThingLink stands apart. Not only can ThingLink be used to edit, annotate and teach with images and videos in real-time, it also supports 360 degree video and VR/AR content.
Thinglink allows over 70 different tags to be used within content, such as links, videos, maps, images, social media and more. It’s intuitive interface allows users to create interactive content in just three steps and using an embeddable sharing link, it’s easy to distribute the content to your students wherever they are and whatever device they’re using. It even integrates natively with Facebook!
With it becoming increasingly more easy to create 360 and VR content using everyday tools like our smartphones, there are very few barriers to entry to begin trialling tools like Thinglink in your lessons.
“Through our goal of creating more digital projects, we discovered ThingLink. ThingLink has allow our students to take the traditional “create a poster” project to a whole new level.” – Brian Seymour
