Embedding Media in Posts: #1

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!

 

 

 

This actually came from http://allaboardhe.org/digital-skills-framework/, which is the product of AllAboard: Digital Skills in Higher Ed in Ireland.  And, as you will note, there is something in there about Creative Commons, which is a shared form of copyright.  So, for the time being, let’s just attribute this to the site.
