Innovative educators can have their students visit this site and share what they found, or what they think their glimpse six months into the future could be. This could be collected in all sorts of innovative ways: audio clips, Vokis, powerpoints, Voicethread, wikis, Google Earth, and more. If, like me, you are not educating students, but rather adults, this could also be a great ice breaker. Where will they be as a transformative educator or leader 6 months in the future, 1 year, 3 years. What will their classroom or school look like? Capture their answer using TwitterFall or Polleverywhere.
In schools or districts where personal learning devices are banned and sites are blocked, this can still be a terrific assignment students can begin away from school and produce their work at school.
