After today’s WIRED training, I’m inspired to try out some new ideas in my classroom. I like the idea of of using Thinglink – a little like Blendspace – as a curation tool for guiding students research and learning and even as a curation tool for students presentations. I’ve already found a really interesting, pre-created Thinglink poster on Space Debris that I can recreate myself and add my own ideas to. For our next topic on Space, the students are going to watch the opening scene from the film Gravity as their hook. I will then allow students to access a Space Debris Thinglink to investigate this idea more. Then I’m going to get the students to repond with a paragraph of descriptive writing.
