ThingLink provides an easy-to-use platform for creating engaging, interactive images. It gives kids the potential to create meaningful content for any subject. ThingLink is an interactive image-creation tool designed to help kids present information in a different way.
ThingLink might be especially helpful for kids who need a visual way to represent new concepts, especially those who learn best with images and symbols instead of words. Example uses are available from the featured content page, which might help some kids get a better idea of how best to use the tool. Because of its focus on images rather than text, ThingLink easily supports multiple learning styles and literacy levels. Some of the content posted to the "featured images" or search results might be too mature for younger kids.
