Future Me

How cool is this? This site allows visitors to write an email to themselves, and then schedule a time for it to be sent in the future. At the time of writing, it offers dates up to the end of 2061. I guess the website could be defunct by then, but maybe not. In the meantime, the learners are sure to be motivated by the thought of writing to themselves a couple of decades down the line.

  • Get learners to draft and edit letters to themselves, perhaps giving advice, describing their situation, talking about their ambitions and predictions or any other topic - great for motivation
  • Learners can write to themselves at the beginning of a unit to record their personal learning intentions. They can set the date for the last week of the unit, and then use it to complete a learning reflection. Great for self-assessment.
