AppSmashing! When I saw the Sketchnote done by Sylvia Duckworth below honestly I was just amazed at her talent. I follow her on Twitter and I know I'm just too linear to create some of the things that she creates. When I went back and looked at GAFE Train again, it hit me. APP SMASH! I'd been wanting to do an appsmash for awhile but hadn't been hit with an inspiration. This was it! I knew I HAD to turn this in to an interactive Thinglink.
I asked Sylvia for permission via Twitter (because that's the right thing to do) and once I got her blessing I went to work finding resources online and linking them up. It was my first Thinglink and my first AppSmash and I'm quite proud of how it turned out. But even better, Sylvia is happy with the results as well.
This project was great fun. I highly recommend trying Thinglink it was easy to use and I was able to make an amazing image interactive. I'd also recommend asking people in your PLN for permission to use their creative products if you want to expand on them because you both may be pleasantly surprised with the results.
I didn't know when I asked for permission to turn it into a Thinglink if she'd think I was a crazy wackadoo or if she'd think it was a great idea. I also sent her the link to the completed Thinglink so she could give me her thoughts before I tweeted it out. That way, if she hated it, she could say so and I could make it disappear. Luckily, she liked it! For me it was a good reminder to just ask for something that you want because you may be surprised by what you get!
