Increasing Engagement with Thinglink

This interactive graphic was created through Thinglink for Tri County Wildlife Care (TCWC). Thinglink allows users to annotate images and videos to increase engagement.  This Thinglink takes TCWC followers to more information about opossums. Viewers simply hover their cursor across the photo to reveal numerous hyperlinked icons. Some of these links connect to a quiz, video, or photos/illustrations about the opossum’s skeletal structure, anatomy, and diet. Additonal links lead to related stories and provide a direct link to Tri County Wildlife Care’s donation page and web page featuring Gold Country Critters.

Thinglink is also a great way for students to demonstrate learning, enabling them to add their own icons and links to additional, relevant resources. Students can share their projects with peers to further learning and collaboration. Sharing through social media links moves student work beyond classroom walls, giving students a real audience for their work.

A Teacher Pro account runs $35/year; a Teacher Premium account is $120/year and includes the 360 degree editor. Both accounts include classroom management.

Creating a Virtual Flipping Newsletter

This is the spring 2017 newsletter for Tri County Wildlife Care. This organization has visited the CRES campus with their wildlife ambassadors. The newsletter was created in Publisher and then uploaded to Flipsnack to create a virtual flipping newsletter.

Tri County Wildlife Care is currently running a GoFundMe campaign to help feed their animals in care. Five dollars buys 5 mice!
