What were we thinking?:

What were we thinking? For another class, we developed a web-based learning system: College Ready ( In doing research for our WBLS, we found many students are underprepared as they leave high school and try to enter higher learning.

Whys (on the student side of things)::

No motivation Family issues (financial, emotional, etc.) Time Learning style is unknown Whys (on the student side of things):

Whys (on the teacher side of things):

Whys (on the teacher side of things) Does not engage with student to identify and address concerns Does not use technology to keep the interest of 21 st century learners Is not available if student needs help Does not present content in ways to accommodate all learning styles

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why ThingLink ? Our WBLS is a site about self-awareness and it contains many resources for students to find out more about themselves. ThingLink is something we wanted to learn more about and possibly add to our site as another tool to help students discover their learning style.

What is ThingLink ThingLink is a platform for creating interactive images and videos for different channels: Web Social Advertising Educational

PowerPoint Presentation:

ThingLink for all learning styles Many educators agree that over 60% of learners are visual. We feel ThingLink has the capability to keep the interest of this large group by providing plenty for them to look at, while addressing the needs of other types of learners. Music and videos with sound can be included for audio learners. Reading/writing preference learners will enjoy adding and reading text for the hotspots or nubbins. Tactile learners can be included by allowing them to click on the hotspots.
