oooo....just checked and I DO have a thinklink account. But I've forgotten all I knew about it. Can't wait to learn today!

01:54 - Peggy George
Susan is definitely the ThingLink guru!!! If you ask anyone how they learned about ThingLink or who their "go to" person is they will always say Susan Oxnevad!!

02:04 - Susan Oxnevad
Make sure you have a thinglink.com/edu account

Susan has just an excellent blog- great resources

05:00 - Peggy George
I first met Susan in her presentations on SimpleK12 and was always so impressed! Now I follow her everywhere :-)

05:34 - Peggy George
Love that title! ThingLink Education Community Manager :-)

06:30 - Suzanne Sallee
The EDU version is so great for classroom use.

06:36 - @bcdtech Maureen
I didnt realize that you can start with video...

06:46 - Peggy George
I love that it is image based! Makes it so easy for students to use in creative ways!!

07:12 - Peggy George
We have included lots of ThingLink examples in our Livebinder today :-)

07:40 - Peggy George
If you have created any ThingLinks (or your students) please share the link in our chat and I'll add it to the Livebinder after the show.

08:12 - @bcdtech Maureen
This list has changed so much over the last year or so. I remember when I had to use soundcloud

08:17 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Google Docs must be "published," not just shared, for the image to show. :)

08:19 - @bcdtech Maureen
no other choices

08:35 - @bcdtech Maureen
Good tip Sheri

08:36 - Peggy George
This is a great resource for learning about ThingLink: http://thinglinktoolkit.wikispaces.com/ (ThingLink ToolKit wiki)

08:42 - Peggy George
thanks for that tip Sheri!

09:03 - Peggy George
the power of a dot... :-)

09:05 - aunttammie
If I have a video clip I''ve created on tubechop, can I put it into thinglink?

09:37 - Peggy George
Lorie will save your questions and ask Susan during Q/A

09:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
I will get the edu premium for next year- our budgets are frozen... but even the free edu accounts are wonderful

09:58 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
That's awesome.

10:04 - Peggy George
those icons are so helpful to indicate the type of link it is :-)

10:18 - Peggy George
Hi Mary! So great to see you!!

10:43 - Peggy George
just mousing over those icons gives you a popup so you can see what it's all about

10:55 - aunttammie
Also wondering if a thinglink can be embedded in a Google presentation.

11:21 - Suzanne Sallee
Works really well on the iPad.

11:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
Great- I didn't know that you could use it without wireless!

Susan also has a great resource for ThingLink on Pinterest. https://www.pinterest.com/soxnevad/ (Susan Oxnevard’ boards on Pinterest)

13:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
My kids tried that out when they were learning how to use thinglink

13:36 - Peggy George
I love the Google Drive integration!!

13:53 - Peggy George
so easy!!!

13:56 - @bcdtech Maureen
This example- the Amazon Rainforest one... is such a wonderful way to show teachers how to use it!

14:16 - Peggy George
Susan will be sharing the Amazon Rainforest ThingLink :-) It's incredible!

15:08 - stidmama
Going to head out early -- will catch the rest later. thanks for reminding us of this great resource!

15:11 - Peggy George

OUr 4th graders are doing regions- this will fit right in.. 3rd or maybe 2nd... do 50 states

Instead of using Tubechop, one option is to edit the Youtube video in Youtube.

maybe you can upload your tubechop video to youtube??

Thinglink's TOS allows for students under 13 to use the site?

40:24 - Peggy George
is that touch button marking it as a favorite?

40:30 - Peggy George
it has a heart :-)

40:30 - aunttammie
When I log in, it says "You've joined tpogue's students". Am I on the teacher page?

40:49 - @bcdtech Maureen
I think so Peggy- but never been sure

41:10 - Peggy George
no Tammie. That shows up when you log into a ThingLink created by someone else. Mine says Peggy George's students :-)

41:38 - aunttammie
I wonder how I get to the teacher page to create my stuff?

44:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
$35/yr great deal

44:59 - Patti Ruffing
$35 i think

45:21 - Peggy George
that's a terrific price! but you can still do so much with the free EDU account!

45:26 - Eileen
Code please.

45:31 - aunttammie
Might consider a price for an individual school for us private schools

45:45 - Peggy George
good point aunttammie!!
