Explain how you would have liked to use ThingLink on an activity that we did earlier in the year. Which activity was it? How would you have used the tags? Why would that have been a good use of our class time?
It is good because I know a lot a bout history now and a lot about Thomas Jefferson. Also it is making me want to learn about other historical hero's and how they had an effect on the world.
I learned that he actulaly built his own mansion, made the luesiona perchus as the third president, and learned how to speak 5 different languages.
I might have done it on the 27 most important historical events because then we could have a picture that had the tags that described each of them. I would have used the tags to describe the pictures. This would be good use of classtime because then we would have just been able to click on what you wanted to learn instead of scrolling up and down looking for what you what to learn.
