30 Goals challenge: Goal 4 Revisit an idea


Some years ago, when I was still working at a language school, I set up a class blog. We worked on various projects, I think that we were from the first classes in Greece that actually used a blog to show their work.
One of our projects in German was "mein Lieblingsding" (my favourite thing), where students posted a picture of their favourite thing, with a small paragraph describing it. This could be done with all levels. Juniors just wrote what the object was e.g. a pink doll, while C2 level students could write the story behind the object.
Some examples:

http://theodorapap.blogspot.gr/2007/05/mein-lieblingsding-georg-und-fotini.html
http://theodorapap.blogspot.gr/2007/05/mein-lieblingsding_334.html

Now that we are more technologically advanced, I thought we could use more than a blog to do this and not only with my German students, but also with my EFL students.
Mural.ly for example that Shelly suggested is a fantastic idea to gather information and opinions and also tumblr as a photo blog.
So this old idea will come out of my closet this year and I hope the results will be wonderful!
