Capability and skills development in real-world environments

Virtual walk-throughs and tours give students access to real-world environments and situations that would otherwise be out of their reach. Interactive 360° images and videos help develop contextual understanding, academic vocabulary and skills in remote locations, cultures, work environments, or social situations.

Grace Ko, a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas used ThingLink 360 images to bring pre-service teachers into special education classrooms. “We reviewed several tools and chose ThingLink because the interface is simple, modern and easy to use, and the editor support embed links.”

Lorrie Salome from Austin ISD creates a virtual classroom lesson organized via this interactive image for students and parents to engage and explore during Covid-19 school closures.

Jamie Larsen from TERC developed STEMlandia for getting students outside and engaged to study science in their local neighborhood. “This is a STEMlandia XR story done by students from four countries during GLOBE Learning Expedition.”

Punkaharju School engaged their students to study archeology and prehistoric times. “ThingLink gave us a great platform to document all the different tasks and activities.”

Jari Simonaho turned a local museum into a virtual learning environment for schools. “A virtual history tour is like a book you can walk into.”
