Without a doubt, the most enjoyable part of my job as Director of Education at ThingLink is connecting with talented and innovative educators! Throughout my journey with ThingLink, I’ve been extremely fortunate to be able to work and learn with the most talented educators around!
6 months ago, we started the ThingLink Certified Educators program to officially round-up some of the most talented and passionate educators. The goal was to build a strong and talented team of experts to embrace ThingLink 360/VR in order to help educators and schools learn to incorporate this new technology into their toolkits.
One of the ways we will be featuring the work of ThingLink Certified Educators is to host several upcoming webinars to feature the great ways they are putting ThingLink 360 to use! We hope you will join us live or on-demand and learn with us! Stay connected to our upcoming webinars on the webinars page of ThingLink Blog for Education.
