BOOTCAMP OVERVIEW

 This bootcamp teaches you to capture the world in 360 photos and use them to compile immersive multimedia stories, engaging your students like never before.

  • Translate a 360 photo into an interactive 360/VR  lesson

  • Understand key practices for annotating 360 images with text, photos, audio, and video

  • Embed Google Forms, maps and other 3rd party tools in 360 photos

  • Design student driven learning activities that promote higher-order thinking skills.  

     Contact susan@thinglink.com to bring a Bootcamp to your school.

 

In the morning, participants learn to design lessons that combine the power of ThingLink’s 360 photo editor with Google Apps and other popular 3rd party tools. We will take a look at ways to redesign classroom instructional time to embrace the common core with 360/VR experiences.


The focus of the afternoon will be on creating and publishing a curriculum-aligned activity for use with students. We’ll take a look at tools and resources for content capture, including 360 cameras and apps. With plenty of time dedicated to applying the learning, participants will walk away with a 360/VR lesson to use in the classroom the next day.
