Here is an example of how Thinglink might fit within the SAMR model:
Thinglink can be especially useful for science, geography, history, language, and visual arts.
Students can create an interactive image to develop or demonstrate their knowledge about a scientific concept or topic. Check out this example of the solar system:
Students can make their own vocabulary mind map and tag related words and images. Students can also annotate images of their favorite authors and texts. See an example in which the image links to Edgar Allan Poe’s birthplace, major works, and related websites.
Students can pinpoint the names of places and landmarks. They can also include definitions or annotate historical facts on maps.
