For this exercise, we are placing media from different sites into our posts. What’s great about this is that I have very little hair so there really isn’t much to pull out – that’s what I really wanted to do when I attempted to embed the below image from Thinglink.
I had read in our Facebook group that someone was having difficulty embedding from this site onto WordPress. Yup. Same here. I’m not even sure I did it correctly, but it’s better than what I had before! What I’ve found works is to simply share, then copy the link and paste it into the post – and there you have it.
What excites me about Thinglink is how interactive it is. This is something my students would really be able to chomp into and create. As a matter of fact, I could see myself spending hours playing with this, so probably best I stay clear for now.
Here, I placed a map of mind-mapping, which is a bit more intricate than I’d like to show my pupils; however, it really does help with defining and demonstrating how each facet works.
I rather like it!
