Quick Tip: Click Action on Tags

ThingLink EDU Premium provides users with the ability to control the click action on tags. This is a very useful feature for educators who Create a Collaborative Student Project because you have the ability to help students successfully navigate through a lesson.

When you add a tag, the click action is set to Automatic by default, but you can select another option by selecting Click Action in the Image Editor.




Unpacking Google Apps for the Teacher Challenge


The Teacher Challenge for Week 3, Create a Collaborative Student Project, is packed with resources, ideas and instructions. This is intentional and necessary because the Teacher Challenge is designed to be useful for teachers across all grade levels and content areas.
