We are so excited to be featuring ThingLink for Educators in our show today with Susan Oxnevad as our special guest presenter! ThingLink is an awesome, free platform for creating interactive images and videos for web, social, advertising, and educational channels. You can make your images come alive with video, text, images, shops, music and more! Every image contains a story and ThingLink helps you tell your stories. Join us to learn about all of the amazing ways ThingLink is being used in the classroom!
Susan Oxnevad is the ThingLink Education Community Manager as well as a Tech Coach in an elementary school in Chicagoland. She strives to build a powerful network of Expert Educators who share a passion for using tech to transforming teaching and learning. Susan blogs about thoughtful ways to leverage the power of technology for teaching and learning on her own blog, Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners, as well as on the ThingLink Blog.

Classroom 2.0 LIVE is an opportunity to gather with other members of the community in real-time events, complete with audio, chat, desktop sharing, and sometimes even video. You are invited to join us for our weekly Saturday show with co-hosts Peggy George, Lorie Moffat, and Tammy Moore!
The show lasts an hour, and links for more information and accessing the Blackboard Collaborate room can be found below and on the Using Collaborate page. We strive to make our shows very beginner-friendly, and if you've never participated in a live web meeting, don't be afraid to come and take a peek at the show's format. We would love for newbies to join us and 'dip their toes' in the conversations until you feel comfortable enough to 'jump in the conversations with both feet'! We want to encourage "experienced Web 2.0 users" to join us to contribute and extend the conversation by providing real-life examples and tips/suggestions.
Weekly sessions will typically include the following:
1. A specific topic will be discussed each week with a special guest presenter, so you can be prepared to bring links, ideas, tools you'd like to share. Once a month the special guest will be a "Featured Teacher" who will share ways he/she is using technology to support learning in their classroom.
2. The "Newbie Question of the Week" (introduction to topic)
3. Announcements of upcoming shows on The Future of Education.
4. A Livebinder is created for every show that includes all of the links shared by the presenter and participants during the webinar.
If you would like to know more about how to access our shows or how to navigate and find things on our website be sure to check out our monthly Livebinders. Click on the tab for "Classroom 2.0 LIVE Resources" and view the screencasts.
