Today, it was very exciting to experiment with ThingLink and then compare it to Canva in its uses and capabilities. While I have had students reflect on their literature using Storyboardthat, HaikuDeck, Prezi, Weebly,EdPuzzle, and various other websites, the idea of providing students with the opportunity to organically embed external resources, as well as their own reflections, has implications
for individual understanding, metacognition, and self-efficacy. I am looking forward to utilizing Thinglink as a formative assessment throughout the reading/performing of the play The Crucible as students move from identifying the elements that make this play of literary merit an allegory to analyzing its significance in history, today, and, ultimately, the future. There are already images on ThingLink that my students and I can use as a template and as a springboard for future creation and student collaboration.
