Superhero 12: Cool Tool-ThingLink

Tonight while reflecting on the Superhero Conference, I saw this tweet from Carolyn Fruin:

Thinglink is a site where you can upload an image or grab one off of Facebook, Flickr or another Website. I decided to test it out to see what it was like.
I grabbed a photo from our family vacation this summer and went to work, adding tags to the image, linking to sites and resources or to other photos I had taken. Roll your mouse over it to view the "Hotspots," that can be customized and include links.

I can see this as a tool for digital storytelling, or reflection with students. It's fairly easy to use, and I like it's embedding qualities, thought I would first make the image no wider than 640 pixels to be sure it is viewable.
