To use Thinglink, students first chose an image of their mission to use as the main background image.
Next, they created a tag for each required element by clicking anywhere on the image. Elements included mission architecture, Indian tribe at the mission, workshops, etc. Students can type information in a text box, as well as insert additional images to enhance their information. (This is all in the free version of Thinglink)
To view a finished mission project, click on the image below. Take a tour of Mission Basilica San Diego and click on this student's tags to get a feel of how Thinglink works.
