Images are the new storytelling platform. That's apparent from popular apps we use every single day. With ThingLink, you can add links to images and video in a powerful, interactive way. Both ThingLink and Tackk have a variety of uses in almost every subject in education, so we're excited to announce our new partnership:
Tackk + ThingLink partner to showcase
interactive images and stories.
Give your completed ThingLinks a home on Tackk
Creating multiple ThingLinks on one subject? Need to show multiple ThingLinks as examples? Create a Tackk to add text, give the backstory or assignment details around your interactive image. Get collaborative: Use Tackk Stream to spark a dialogue about your image.
Use one of our pre-made ThingLink lesson ideas
We have a handful of ThingLink/Tackk lessons in a variety of subjects, and we're working on adding more. Combining both tools gives students creative freedom and focuses on persuasive writing, digital storytelling and critical thinking skills.
