Future Me
https://www.futureme.org/
Future Me is a simple site that allows users to write an email to their future self. It allows the user to write an email, include an image, and select the date that the writer wants the email to be delivered back to them. ELL’s could be provided with opportunities to write their ideas in their 1st language or in English depending on level and learning objective. What about writing a letter as the KW in a KWL? When the unit is complete, the letter could be returned and reflected on as part of formative assessment.
