ThingLink is a tool that brings interactive links and notes to photos. Icons appear on the picture and each has either a link to a website or video, text or both! I tried it out by making our current NaNoWriMo display in the Learning Commons "virtual" by adding links to the online catalog, a YouTube link and different NaNoWriMo-related links that match the visuals.
ThingLink would be a great tool for students to show analysis of multimedia. Public domain and museum archives would be a great place to start for images, such as the NYPL Digital Gallery or the Library of Congress American Memory Project. Students could add notes or links to a map or photograph from a historic time period as way of descriptive comparison.
The example (right) by a tech integrationist was made to show teachers how students can enhance diagrams and demonstrate more specific comprehension than they may on paper.
