Well, day one of the fourth annual event is officially in the books and just as anticipated, California University of Pennsylvania was transformed into one edu-happening place! With topics such as Evernote, Weebly, Computer Programming, Webquesting and Infographics, how could an educator go wrong! Of course, a tech extravaganza wouldn’t be complete without a session promoting the use of the ultimate teaching and learning edtech tool… Yep, you guessed it—Thinglink!
So, how does one teach others about the awesomeness of this “cool tool”? Um, with a Thinglink, naturally! Check out it out below. Just hover over the image to reveal a variety of examples, resources and tutorials. Yep, you’ve just hit the Thinglink jackpot!

Not only was the hands-on workshop a huge success, but two new Thinglink rock stars crashed onto the edtech scene!
I still have a stitch from laughing! It’s hard to imagine that we got anything productive accomplished looking like this!
Students not only love being engaged, but they also appreciate having the opportunity to discover new content, so why not use Thinglink images as a means to explore info and/or extend learning related to a particular topic or concept. It’s also an excellent way to deliver professional development!

A special shout out to Lori Lochran, my Geeky Girl BFF, for her assistance in facilitating this Thinglink session and especially for cooperating with my crazy ideas!
Another shout out to my colleagues Donna Baumbach (Aunty Tech), Susan Oxnevad and Lisa Johnson (TechChef4u), who was the inspiration behind my Thinglink 1 & 2 gimmick, for sharing a variety of fabulous resources used in this presentation. If you are not following these edtech addicts, you don’t know what you’re missing!
