Think Link is a Beta site brought to us by David Riley, creator of one of my favorite teacher resources of all time, Triptico. If you have not read my review about Triptico, you can click here – or just go directly to his site to download this magnificent educator toolbox.
Think Link is a neat way to integrate technology into the activity that I wrote about yesterday – Hexagonal Learning. On the Think Link site, you can create your own board of hexagons, add notes to each one, and manipulate them. You can save your boards to be used whenever you like on that computer. This is an alternative to cutting out a lot of hexagons to distribute to your students. Think Link could be used for your students to generate hexagon words as a class about a particular topic. The board could be saved, and then different student groups could create their own relationships with the words to show their understanding of the topic.
I highly recommend trying a Think Link activity with your students this year.
