    The way I approached the subject is to sign up and attend several Thinkfinity webinars.Those webinars are lead by instructors trained in using Thinkfinity. Mmeza in the previous post list the Thinkfinity webinars specific to California that are being offered through September.

    Hi Mileiby Toro,

     

    Welcome to the Thinkfinity Community!  Thinkfinity offers two web addresses that provide educators with thousands of resources and a place to share information.  Thinkfinity.org is the homepage of a plethora of resources specific to teachers, students, parents, after-school instructors, literacy professionals, and others who are looking for educational resources.  Eleven partners provide lesson plans, e-sheets, videos, podcasts, interactives, manipulatives, online tools, etc. that can be searched by subject area, grade level, resource type, standards (benchmarks), and partner.  The gold navigation bar across the top of the homepage has a tab called "In the Classroom" which will help you get started using this site as a teacher.  Under the heading "Professional Development" in the navigation bar, you will find additional helps for using the site including free webinars.

     

    The second web address is the Thinkfinity Community which you have joined and where you posted your question.  This community is broken down into four separate communities as listed on the homepage--Verizon Thinkfinity 101, Professional Development, the Lounge and the Help Center.  At any time if you need assistance with the Thinkfinity Community, be sure to send your questions to the Help Center.  Someone is always available to provide feedback within 24 hours or less.  There are several helps in the Community that may be of assistance as you join this large group of educators collaborating to enhance their instructional methods and resources.  A great starting point is the document Getting Started in the Thinkfinity Community.  There is a Wordle document post that describes What is Thinkfinity.png?  Another discussion in the Community involves describing Thinkfinity--The specified item was not found. which you may find enlightening.

     

    The best way to learn about Thinkfinity is to explore both of these web addresses and experiment with search results and community offerings.  You have already taken a giant step in joining the Thinkfinity Community and posting a question.  You are well on your way to being a part of Thinkfinity.  Thanks for joining up and showing your willingness to explore something new.  Have fun and let us know what you think of Thinkfinity.

    You can find many resources for teaching. I especially like the interactive activities where students can practice skills that you have taught. It also has an excellent way of communicating with other teachers, basically a eacher's facebook.
