THINGLINK: images with embedded content

Whether abstract or realistic, images are a bit like treasure chests: once you ‘open’ or unlock the visual content, what is given explicitly reveals even more of what is hidden deep down.

Imagination sets the only limit to interpretation and extension.

THINGLINK is a free app which lets you embed information into an image of your choice,

thus giving it even more layers of meaning and relevance:

THINGLINK images may act as visual canvas for a lesson.

It is all about lies – new lies of the digital age:

the sock puppet, the butler, the Chinese Water Army …

The numbers show a sequence in which learners may explore the topic.
